Book Review: Five Traits of a Christ-follower, compiled by Doug Nuenke
What makes a Christ-follower different from someone who doesn’t follow Christ? Doug Nuenke, president of the Navigators, has compiled a set of devotionals dedicated to answering that question. With contributors from inside the Navigators organization and beyond, the book is split into four categories: Walking with Jesus, Knowing and Living the Scriptures, Participating in Community, Engaging with Those Who Don’t Know Christ, and Reproducing Spiritual Generations.
These devotions are short, as is the entire book, and although the book is meant to show the traits of a Christ-follower, each devotional stands on its own. Each devotion has a voice of its own, so the devotions could be read out of order while still making sense. Each devotion provides one verse to ponder on, and authors pull from different books of the Bible.
Five Traits of a Christ-follower is a convenient help for those who want to start reading the Bible but are limited on time and ideas. It’s a good resource for those who want to build or continue a daily discipline of devotions but are concerned about time being short.
