Description

A Comprehensive, Balanced, and Applicable Guide to Spiritual Growth.

What does a real relationship with God look like? What does the biblical vision of true spiritual life look like? How do we grow in spiritual maturity? How we answer these questions influences the health, potency, and witness of Christians in an increasingly complex and hostile world.

Conformed to His Image answers these questions with clarity and insight, offering a comprehensive, balanced, and applicable guide to spiritual growth. Designed for use in college and seminary courses, this revised edition of the widely used textbook helps readers build their lives on a fully biblical perspective. It offers corrective to our tendency to pick and compartmentalize spiritual growth by exploring twelve facets of authentic Christian spirituality including:

  • Relational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Other Compassionately
  • Paradigm Spirituality: Cultivating an Eternal versus a Temporal Perspective
  • Disciplined Spirituality: Engaging in the Historical Disciplines
  • Exchanged Life Spirituality: Grasping Our True Identity in Christ
  • Motivated Spirituality: A Set of Biblical Incentives
  • Devotional Spirituality: Falling in Love with God
  • Holistic Spirituality: Every Component of Life under the Lordship of Christ
  • Process Spirituality: Process versus Product, Being versus Doing
  • Spirit-Filled Spirituality: Walking in the Power of the Spirit
  • Warfare Spirituality: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil
  • Nurturing Spirituality: A Lifestyle of Evangelism and Discipleship
  • Corporate Spirituality: Encouragement, Accountability, and Worship

With chapter overviews and objectives, questions for personal application, a glossary, and a list of key terms, Conformed to His Image provides a defining text for the student, pastor, and church leader of today and tomorrow. This revised edition includes new recommended resources throughout, more recent examples of subjects discussed, and updated wording to better reflect our postmodern context.
