Be Authentic: Exhibiting Real Faith in the Real World

Jacket description:
"Life is full of imitations. Which is why today's culture needs genuine, transparent people of God. Believers who crave real spiritual growth. But what does that look like? The book of Genesis provides the answer, where we find three men who experienced an authentic life: Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. 

Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe's best-selling "BE" commentary series, Be Authentic has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh."

I LOVE Warren Wiersbe's Bible study books. This "BE" series has been so eye-opening an enlightening, this one probably being my favorite. Focusing on Genesis 25-50, the author really dives deep into Jacob, Isaac, and Joseph's stories and tries to teach us the way to be truly authentic in our own faith. Each of these men had serious problems throughout their lives, showcased in the thirteen chapters, and their growth in authentic faith through God.

The study questions at the end of each chapter are perfect for a group setting, but worked well as just an individual study as well. I did it myself, but can see how each question can really open up a big discussion within a Bible study group. The scriptural study is immensely helpful in truly understanding God's word and I've found myself referencing back to previous "BE" books when doing other Bible studies.

I've also reviewed Be Hopeful and read several others. These are definitely worth your time and at $12.00, they aren't badly priced at all. I'm a fan!

Overall rating: 5 out of 5
