Against the flow of consumerist Christianity, Dr. Pentecost reminds the readers that the Christian life is not primarily about Jesus being our best friend, finding the keys to happiness, or just making it to heaven. In this insightful look at godliness, one of America's most respected and practical theologians discusses the essential principles that encompasses every aspect of life. Our life in Christ redefines our purposes and reshapes our perspectives. With our eternal destination secured, we embark on a lifelong journey toward godliness, being changed into the image of Christ as we live a life empowered by the Holy Spirit. Centered on Scripture, Designed to Be Like Him takes you step-by-step through a theologically sound pattern for maturing in Christ. Fellowship, conduct, conflict, and maturity are all discussed in detailed, yet understandable, language.
