Comprehensive, Balanced, and Applicable Guidance to Spiritual Growth.
What is the biblical vision of true spiritual life? How do we grow in spiritual maturity? Conformed to His Image, Revised Edition, together with the Conformed to His Image Video Study and Conformed to His Image Study Guide, answers these questions with clarity and insight, offering comprehensive, balanced, and applicable guidance to spiritual growth.
Designed for use by individual learners or groups, or in college and seminary courses, the revised edition of Ken Boa’s widely used textbook (originally published in 2001) appears alongside two practical tools to help readers build their lives on a fully biblical foundation. The resources offer a corrective to our tendency to narrow and compartmentalize spiritual growth. It does so by exploring 12 facets of authentic Christian spirituality:
- Relational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Others 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: Growing in Relationship 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
These complementary resources provide defining material for the student, pastor, and church leader of today and tomorrow. The revised edition of the textbook includes new recommended resources throughout, more recent examples of subjects discussed, and updated wording to better reflect our postmodern context. The Video Study and Study Guide offer 40 sessions, mirroring the chapter topics in the textbook.
