“Faith” by Pete Carter
Jesus said that, “Everything is possible for one who believes,” and that “Faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains”. These amazing statements carry great hope and at the same time, they present a huge challenge to Christians in terms of how we can and should work them out in our daily lives. Jesus also talked about how ‘unbelief’ is a powerful barrier to seeing the full reality of Jesus expressed through Christian lives. So then, how do we grow in faith and overcome our unbelief?
In his book “Faith”, Pete Carter takes us on a journey of addressing these issues. The book is divided in three sections that build our understanding towards our goal. “What is faith?”, “Enemies of faith” and “How to continually grow in faith”. And between each chapter, a true story of faith in Jesus, at work through everyday lives, provides an ongoing encouragement to grow in faith.
Pete’s style of writing is easy to read, yet contains profound truths explained simply in short chapters. Subjects such as “Why doesn’t God answer our prayers” are answered using Biblical truths; the imagery of the potential of the Holy Spirit described as a “River of life” and flowing in every Christian life provides a background theme throughout the book.
