How Christians Grow: Spiritual Transformation for Life by Andrew Prince
When someone becomes a Christian, they enter into a lifelong journey of God-driven transformation into the likeness of Christ. But what does this transformation process look like, and what means does God use to bring about spiritual growth? How does a Christian continue growing spiritually? How do they prevent the practice of the spiritual discipline of meditating on God’s word from become mechanical when they may have read through the Bible many times? How do they mature in prayer? And how do they continue being conformed to the image of Christ for the rest of their lives rather than simply putting their spiritual gearstick into neutral and coasting into eternity? This book seeks to answer such questions. It begins by exploring the contours of this spiritual transformation into Christlikeness before introducing various means God uses to bring this about. The book seeks to give hope and instruction, both to the weary and to the strong, so that they can grow more like Christ through the means of grace that God has provided.
