Jamie Snyder's book, Real: Becoming a 24/7 Follower of Christ, really got me thinking about my own spiritual life. And I think it will do the same for any reader. He urges us to take an in-depth look at our life and examine whether our spiritual walk is real or if we have made it become religious and ritualistic. In his book he asks us if people would be able to tell if we were a Christ-follower if they didn't see us at church. In other words, has our spiritual walk been reduced to only Sundays? If the answer to that question is yes then we have a problem...and it's time to deepen our walk.
Real is a short book that is easy to read fairly quickly. The chapters are short and to the point but truly challenge us to take part in self-reflection and encourage us to seek true intimacy with our Maker. Each chapter also includes a few questions and a short prayer which makes this book a great one to read with a friend or group.
