Practical and realistic, Experiencing God’s Story of Life and Hope leads believers through the process of growing spiritually. Bringing his skills and expertise to bear, Scott Duvall guides readers as they look at what they believe, how they behave, and who they are becoming-three essential considerations in spiritual growth.
Each brief, four-to-five page lesson begins with a close examination of Scripture and ends with personal application. In each chapter, Duvall teaches Christians a thoroughly biblical approach to spiritual maturity, allowing God to work in their lives.

Everybody talks about the integration of biblical studies, theology, and spiritual formation, but few do it well. This clear and practical workbook is a delightful exception. . . . Scott Duvall writes as both pastor and professor, using an engaging style full of illustrations and relevant quotations. The volume will serve as an excellent textbook for courses on spiritual formation as well as for theology courses that seek to take students beyond propositional truth to the transformation of the soul.
—Mark L. Strauss, Professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary
Everything Scott Duvall writes is clear, accurate and relevant. This latest work is no different. A miniature systematic theology, with implications for spiritual formation, it includes workbook style questions on both content and application of key texts. Belief, behavior, and becoming are all coordinated for each major Christian doctrine. An outstanding primer for the novice, the book can also stimulate review, repentance, and refreshment for the seasoned believer. Highly recommended.
—Craig Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of the New Testament, Denver Seminary
