Hedges explains that pursuing holiness is a process: although Christians are made holy through Christ, it is a gradual transformation to become more like God. The book is structured in an easy-to-follow format; Hedges explains foundational theology and defines many Christanese terms that the Church has used for years but whose meanings still mystify many. Brian G. Hedges has been pastor of Fulkerson Park Baptist Church in Niles, Michigan, since 2003. It is clear through his writing that he is a man who seeks the Lords heart.
"The good news is that God is re-forging the shards [of broken self]! When he is finished, no trace of the breakage will remain. For God has formed a rescue plan," Hedges writes. "I believe transformation is possible." One part of the book that is especially powerful is the focus on "fighting sin with the promises of God." Hedges states, "The goal is never simply refraining from sin, but actively replacing sin with righteousness as we are consciously motivated by the gospel."
Christ Formed in You gives countless biblical passages and quotes from theologians, all which drive home the point that God longs to transform his children, if they will allow it. Although at times the number of headings on each page can be cumbersome, the substance of the book makes up for it in its strength. It combines theology and the gospel to combat the sinful nature and to aid in the life-makeover God wants for everyone. Christ Formed in You is perfect for those who are young in their faith, those searching for answers to foundational theology, and those who wish to seek the Lord and be transformed.

donkcalgary, abAge: 55-65Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5the book is excellent the e reader software is badOctober 17, 2011donkcalgary, abAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The book is excellent, a must have. The e-reader software that comes with the ebook is terrible. The web site is confusing and the application for the iphone is awful. Can't figure out how the bookmark thing works. There is no help page or instructions or web site giving instructions. I purchased the e-book and can only seem to use it with the christian book e-reader app on my iphone. I don't see how I can use it with a different app that perhaps has more functionality. This is my first and last attempt at e-reading. I went and purchased a paper copy and am happy with the printed book. The e-version was a waste of time and money.
