Book Overview
The process of sanctification is personal and organic--not a one-size-fits-all formula. Many popular views try to reduce the process of Christian growth to a single template. For example, remember past grace . Rehearse your identity in Christ . Avail yourself of the means of grace . Discipline yourself . But Scripture portrays the dynamics of sanctification in a rich variety of ways. No single factor, truth, or protocol can capture why and how a person is changed into the image of Christ. Weaving together personal stories, biblical exposition, and theological reflection, David Powlison shows the personal and particular ways that God meets you where you are to produce change. He highlights the variety of factors that work together, helping us to avoid sweeping generalizations and pat answers in the search for a key to sanctification. This book is a go-to resource for understanding the multifaceted, lifelong, personal journey of sanctification.
