Pressing on Toward Maturity: Seven Biblical Truths for Spiritual Growth by Joey A. Perry, Sr. is a life-changing book that discusses the topic of Christian maturity. The work looks into seven truths that, when studied and internalized, will remind any Christian of God’s presence and love in their lives even when things seem bleak. The author likens the Christian journey to the growth process of a child in becoming an adult. In Chapter 5, the book discusses the topic of worrying and its negative impact on our peace, productivity, health, and our concern for others, among others. Instead of worrying, the book advocates prayer and trust in God. Other sections discuss God’s sovereignty, faithfulness, and the ability to handle all circumstances as well as other uplifting biblical teachings.

The book utilizes simple and straightforward language that is accessible to any reader. In some places, anecdotes are included to further explain the topics. This ensures that the messages remain clear and comprehensible. The work is also arranged in clearly marked chapters that are comprehensively discussed and with clearly-marked subtopics. The author also adopts an encouraging tone that is reassuring and inspires hope. He writes from a point of understanding, sometimes even pointing out parts of his own growth process. Every chapter is backed by related biblical passages that provide a foundation for the discussions. They also remind readers of biblical characters whose flaws did not prevent them from achieving amazing accomplishments. Pressing on Toward Maturity by Joey A. Perry, Sr. is a book for any reader, especially anyone wanting to study the topic of Christian maturity.
