Christ Formed In You - Review



I believe I have found my new personal favorite book on Sanctification. Christ Formed In You: The Power of the Gospel for Personal Change, by Brian Hedges, is one for personal study and sharing with others.

I have read more than a few books on growing in Christ-likeness. They can either be over simplified books encouraging you to just try harder, or they can be so theologically weighty, they lull you to sleep, lacking any practical application.  Brian Hedges succeeds in delivering that elusive middle ground, revealing the important doctrines of the Gospel, the power and provision of the Spirit, and our own individual role, in the life long process of being conformed into the image of Christ.

Growing in Christ is a topic that we all find ourselves going back to. So often we fight the good fight against sin for a season, but it seems we are quick to return to a position of complacency. Whether you are just starting out on your journey, or are seeking to regain your foothold, Christ Formed In You, will set you off in the right direction.
