MINDING YOUR FAITH
How Men Can Have Devotional Lives That Will Actually Affect Their Real Lives
ARE YOU FULLY SATISFIED WITH YOUR DEVOTIONAL LIFE?
IS YOUR DAILY COMMUNION WITH THE LORD ALL YOU HOPE IT WILL BE?
This book is written especially for men who long to enjoy their relationship with the true and living God, but who find themselves floundering in their daily devotional life. Gregg Hodge has a peculiar burden for men who are in the second half of their lives, and he desires to help them prepare their hearts each day for the glory that is promised to every child of God.
In the introduction, the author writes:
"Every time I find myself languishing in self-pity, smoldering in anger or sinking in doubt; every time another failure strips my last hope or fatigue squelches my best intentions; whenever distractions jar my focus; whenever circumstances challenge my beliefs, or when my pain eclipses my joy, I begin, not by tending to my emotions, but by minding my faith. So my hope is to help you do the same for your own satisfaction and for God's Glory."

"As one who regularly reads and teaches books related to the history of biblical spirituality, I believe that I have some idea of wheat and chaff in this ever-growing field of thought and reflection. This new book by Gregg Hodge is definitely in the category of wheat, for here is solid, practical wisdom on how best to nourish the soul. So buy this book - ponder it - and do not be afraid to do what it says!" - Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin
You have been created to glorify God through enjoyment, which differs from the rest of God's creations. Glorifying God involves acknowledging our enjoyment of Him in the various ways He has made Himself known to us. However, you cannot fully enjoy Him and thereby glorify Him without essential specific knowledge about Him that is found only in the Bible. The effective life-changing process for gaining this knowledge is what this book calls minding your faith.

He is a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.
