In this standard on the Christian life, Chafer addresses the main concerns in relation to the spiritual component of living a holy life. He explores what the Bible says about the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian in great detail and clarity. After addressing the importance of the Holy Spirit, Chafer moves on to sin, submission and obedience on the part of the believer. He also provides helpful explanations of the doctrines of humanity’s fallen nature and sanctification. This book will be helpful for new believers as well as seasoned Christians seeking to deepen their walk with Christ.

No subject was more dear to the heart of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer than the teaching of the Scriptures on the spiritual life.

John F. Walvoord, president of Dallas Theological Seminary

I welcome therefore this present book on these fundamental truths. Having had the privilege of seeing it in manuscript, I bespeak for it the candid attention of all who are concerned for the truth of God.

—C.I. Scofield, in the preface to the 1936 edition of The Kingdom in History and Prophecy

I am glad of the privilege of calling attention to a presentation of the way of salvation which is certain to lead all who read it earnestly to a living faith in Christ, and then to a constant joy because of the abundant and assured provision of God for the Christian life.

—W. H. Griffith Thomas, in the preface to the 1917 edition of Salvation
