In this book, Robby Gallaty begins in his first chapter by looking at how truth grows and then spends the rest of his book looking at the different types of fruit that we need to see in the church.
I do not want to give much away with this book, but seeing how much the author focuses on our relationship with Christ before we can produce any fruit is very encouraging. Without Christ, we cannot do anything. We most certainly cannot grow in our faith.
He delves into great detail on producing fruit in our Christian life. These fruits are:
The fruit of repentance
The fruit of ministry
The fruit of sanctification
The fruit of righteousness
The fruit of good works
The fruit of the Spirit
The fruit of praise
Each of these fruits is important to see produced. Why is this? Because as Jesus said, “by their fruits ye shall know them (Matt. 7:20).” When we produce fruits, people will know who we are. Christians and non-Christians alike should see that we are followers of Christ.
To conclude the book, Gallaty includes a Bible study method, which has Bible reading and Scripture memory. This is an important part of growth in Christ and bearing fruit.
Gallaty does an excellent job of looking at the different types of fruit that we must produce in our lives by abiding in Christ. He writes in very simple terms that all Christians can understand. I recommend this book highly to help Christians grow and bear fruit, as the title would suggest, and give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
