Pub Date 21 Jun 2016

I was given a copy of The Power of Together through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:

Jim Putnam points out that Jesus wants us to follow his recipe for living.  And he points out too that we as Christians don’t always follow God’s recipes for living as we should. Put an points out that our Spiritual food is succestible to being punished by our Spiritual enemy.

We are reminded too that we are all Created with a Purpose in mind.  

Putnam also points out that it is important that we as Christians need to know the Bible.  We are warned too of Pastors who try to discover some “New truth” in The Bible.

If you are looking for a book that will help you to grow in your Christian walk then The Power of Together is just the book you need.  I give this book five out of five Stars.
