Fortis Momentum By Chris Downs

A Christian Self-Help Book That Will Guide You To A Greater Relationship
With God Through A Deeper Understanding Of The Scriptures.

Fortis Momentum


by Chris Downs

This dynamic and cleverly written Christian self-help book will guide you into a strong relationship with God!  Fortis Momentum is an easy-to-grasp and follow guide that gives clear understanding which fits with your unique way of living.  It can help you grow closer to God, expand your insight into living, guide you in overcoming life's battles, and enable you to help others, as well.  It's also a great book to share with other's who are looking for guidance or answers to their questions about life or Christianity.  

With thoughts, prayers, and lists of Biblical verses, this one-of-a-kind, uplifting resource is a rare tool you can use to grow your faith. Gathering many different topics that people often wonder about, from God's Word to daily experiences, this powerful, straightforward book will lead you to God's peace in your own individual way. Christians seeking to enrich the role of God in their lives will treasure this simply profound book.


Fortis Momentum by Chris Downs is a unique book. It is a "must have" for the person new in Christ to put him or her on the right road for a successful Christian life. He has skillfully organized information a new Christian needs to know and has created an easy to understand book that makes it helpful to find the Bible verses one need to continually grow in the Word. It is also filled with prayers the reader can use to start his Christian life for continued growth. Reflecting on my initial steps into Christianity I remember it was trial and error, having this book at the beginning of my spiritual journey would have made that time so much easier.

However, Fortis Momentum is an important inspirational self-help book of prayers, meditations and Christian strategies for every Christian. The author went beyond writing an ordinary book. This is a guidebook that is important for Christians to read and get into their hearts. It has an extensive table of contents that easily guides the reader to a particular need or problem. One Section that I like is: What to Pray When... We Are Afraid, We Are Feeling Anxious, When We Sin, etc. This section covers prayers the reader can use to have spiritual communication with God to heal the spirit and grow in faith. I found this to be a very effective way to teach Christians that they must pray daily and that they can pray about anything, large or small! It also demonstrates that constant prayer brings one close to God and keeps them in loving communion. The reader learns that it is much easier to ask for what they need from God if they feel comfortable in the knowledge that He is always there for them. Chris even gives the reader a formula for prayer, which I found to be very effective.

Fortis Momentum is a book Christians need to keep available; it is filled with life enhancing truths straight from the Bible tempered with the realities of life. Chris Downs has written this book not only for the new Christian but for anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible and God's plan for us. Every Christian should have this book to refer to or to have it available for anyone who has an interest or may be floundering in their quest for knowledge of the Word. The book is concise and written with enthusiasm and loving kindness. The reader will come away after closing the book with an inner peace because of the truth which Chris Downs has labored so diligently to impart. The power of this book is evident, the exquisite use of words that fill us with the insight to God's plan for each of us are vastly included in Fortis Momentum to keep the Word growing within the heart for greater faith. 


About The Author


Chris gives credit to Carol Downs, his mother, for teaching him the Word of God at the age of 3 and he is thankful to his father, Stephen Downs for teaching him "how to teach."  These gifts are greatly reflected in his writing!  

His new book, Fortis Momentum, makes the Word come alive in the hearts and minds of its readers as Chris shares how to pray successfully through Jesus Christ and develop strategies for successful Christian living.
