While many sanctification models are fragmented and individualistic, the relational paradigm paints a coherent picture of both process and goal, supported by both ancient wisdom and cutting-edge research.
Integrating insights from psychology and theology, this book lays out the basis for relational transformation and how it works practically in the context of relationships and community. Highlighting key characteristics of spiritual communities that foster transformation, Hall and Hall equip spiritual leaders and practitioners to more effectively facilitate spiritual growth for themselves and those they serve.
