Becoming More Like Christ: A Contemporary Biblical Journey

by ,

Paternoster 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


None of us are born Christ like, none of us become Christ like at conversion, and none of us become more Christ like by just being in church, or even reading the Bible. We all need to personally change to become more like Jesus.

In contemporary society, change is identified as essential to the journey toward personal maturity. This book suggests that from a biblical perspective personal, positive change is central to a journey of discipleship. The book calls for the rethinking of current church practice—where people are normally expected to change at conversion, becoming more like other members, but subsequently are not required to change much at all. The book outlines and introduces the reader to a step by step approach to personal positive change and wholeness.

Praise for the Print Edition

A concrete and practical approach toward discipleship that helps us to apply Christ's likeness to our lives while avoiding ‘clone-making.’

—Mike Gammil, pastor in Houston, Texas
