What does a relationship with God look like and how do we obtain it? It is vital for church leaders to grapple seriously with this question, for pat answers no longer suffice. Lives well-lived, not just words eloquently spoken, must become our response. The quality of our relationship with God is what will influence the health, potency, and witness of the church in an increasingly complex and hostile world. Designed for use as a college or seminary course, Conformed to His Image helps us build our lives on a fully biblical perspective. Exploring twelve approaches to Christian spirituality in depth, Dr. Kenneth Boa corrects our tendency to pick and compartmentalize. Pointing the way instead to an integrative, whole-life approach, Dr. Boa shows how each spiritual paradigm discussed is just one important facet in the gem of authentic and powerful New Testament living. With chapter overviews and objectives, questions for personal application, a glossary, and a list of key terms, Conformed to His Image will prove a defining text for the student, pastor, and church leader of today . . . and tomorrow. 12 Facets of the Complete Christian Life Relational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Others Compassionately Paradigm Spirituality: Cultivating an Eternal versus a Temporal Perspective Disciplined Spirituality: Engaging in the Historical Differences Exchanged Life Spirituality: Grasping Our True Identity in Christ Motivated Spirituality: A Set of Biblical Incentives Devotional Spirituality: Falling in Love with God Holistic Spirituality: Every Component of Life under the Lordship of Christ Process Spirituality: Being versus Doing, Process versus Product Spirit-Filled Spirituality: Walking in the Power of the Spirit Warfare Spirituality: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil Nurturing Spirituality: A Lifestyle of Discipleship and Evangelism Corporate Spirituality: Encouragement, Accountability, and Worship
HersheyreaderHershey, PA5 Stars Out Of 5WONDERFUL BOOK!May 27, 2012HersheyreaderHershey, PAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I first started to read this book, I thought it was going to be more of textbook style, and not really something I'd enjoy....I couldn't have been more wrong! I love how Boa takes spiritual formation and provides a hands-on approach to it. I've been looking for this type of a spiritual formation book for a long time. I highly recommend this book, and take time to digest it...read it slowly, pray over it, and really let it soak in.

At times I did not want to put the book down and I probably would have kept on reading if it was not for the fact I had to go to work in the morning. It is a great book and worth reading to all that are interested in knowing about God.

Anne5 Stars Out Of 5February 2, 2010AnneQuite literally, a textbook on how to grow in your relationship with God. Boa successfully addresses a multidimensional approach to the Christian spiritual life. The emphasis on balance and wholeness is much appreciated. The book also refers to many, many additional books that will help you in your walk with God (with the primary emphasis on the Bible, of course).
