"Every Christian is called to press on toward maturity in Christ," writes Charles Colson in the foreword. "True believers, who understand the enormity of Christ’s sacrifice and the abundance of the life for which he has redeemed us, hunger and thirst to know him better and love him more."
Growing in God’s Spirit, with three selections from Jonathan Edwards’s writings, outlines "in clear and compelling terms," writes T. M. Moore, "what it means to grow in God’s Spirit, and how we may begin to do so with greater consistency and delight." Edwards calls us to a life of faith that - is infused with a transcendent perspective - delights in the prospect of heaven and the presence of God - takes seriously the challenge and privilege of growing in God’s Spirit.
Moore divides these selections into brief chapters and adds subheads. Each of the 13 chapters concludes with questions to promote reflection on the meaning and application of Edwards’s words. Moore’s introduction helps launch the reader into Edwards’ text. Growing in God’s Spirit is the first in a series of books making the writings of Edwards accessible to all.
"Edwards’s writings, some of the greatest treasures of the Kingdom, have enormously influenced my life. . . . This collection will be an invaluable resource for pursuing growth in God’s Spirit." —Charles Colson
