It Is Not About Us: A book for the maturing Christian

Free sample

As a pastor, Michael Allen realized there was a real need for Bible study material directed toward the maturing Christian.  There is a wealth of information dealing with salvation and the first baby steps a newborn Christian takes.   Yet, there seems to be a drought of material aimed at those who are attempting to walk in the deeper things of God.  This book is for those who truly hunger for a more extensive knowledge of the most high.  Do you genuinely want to draw closer to God?  Do you want to know him personally and intensely?   Then this book is for you.

 

As the world plummets deeper and deeper into the concept of self as the center  of all living, this book is an insightful look into the heart of God.  If you wholeheartedly desire a greater intimacy with God, this book will provide insights into his character.  Do you dare to see God for who he is?  Then read this book and immerse yourself in the knowledge of his amazing power, love, and grace.

Michael Allen
The holy has been defined existentially and sociologically, and churches too often allow their expectations regarding holiness to be prompted by existential aspirations or the social mores of the Christian community. Perhaps it is not surprising that many view holiness as accidental or expendable, even as a legalistic and conformist posture opposed to the freedom of the gospel. But sanctification is one of the gifts of the gospel of Jesus Christ, so we must think about the way in which he makes his redeemed holy as a grace.

Sanctification, the latest volume in the New Studies in Dogmatics series, patiently defines holiness in theological terms by tending to its connections with core Christian doctrines such as the character of God, the nature of creation, and the covenantal shape of life with God. It then considers the ways in which the gospel of Jesus not only prompt us to holy action but provides holiness as one of its blessings. Finally, it attends to the ways in which the gift of sanctification relates to various human instruments and means, so that we can appreciate its connection to human nature, creaturely responsibility, and the pedagogy of exemplars and of law. Sanctification offers a Christ-centered account of sanctification by viewing the doctrine within its wider canonical and creedal context, hoping to bring its distinctly Christian definition and thoroughly gracious character into greater relief.

New Studies in Dogmatics seeks to retrieve the riches of Christian doctrine for the sake of contemporary theological renewal. Following in the tradition of G. C. Berkouwer's Studies in Dogmatics, this series will provide thoughtful, concise, and readable treatments of major theological topics, expressing the biblical, creedal, and confessional shape of Christian doctrine for a contemporary evangelical audience. The editors and contributors share a common conviction that the way forward in constructive systematic theology lies in building upon the foundations laid in the church's historic understanding of the Word of God as professed in its creeds, councils, and confessions, and by its most trusted teachers.
