Christ Formed in You

A classic must-read for every believer

The Power of the Gospel for Personal Change

"This is a book about spiritual formation, the “grace-driven developmental process in which the soul grows in conformity to the image of Christ." The acid test of all spiritual formation is this: Are you becoming more like Jesus? Are the contours of your character being shaped by his image, formed in his likeness? This ongoing transformation is possible for you. You can become more and more like Jesus Christ. But there is only one way: through your increasing understanding and application of the gospel. That is what this book is about.”

(Copied from the back cover of Christ Formed in You)

With these words, Pastor Brian Hedges brings a beautiful clarity to our understanding of the gospel and then develops the power of the gospel in the daily lives of believers. Here is a sound, sensible guide for all who are seeking an intellectually satisfying presentation of the process of sanctification, or personal change.

"Brian Hedges has done the church a great service in writing this book, which reveals the God-intended path of sanctification. The ultimate goal in spiritual maturity is to transform believers into the image of Christ. Those who apply the message of this insightful book will, by God’s grace, find themselves growing into authentic Christlikeness" 
–Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, AL

This sounds good, I could do with a personal way of thinking, things in my life are not getting resolved after continuous tenacity.
Hope you're ok.
Summer has come to the UK at last.
