Product Description

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.

    In his book, Designed To Be Like Him, Dwight Pentecost takes you through a step by step discussion of the natural man without Christ, and the new man in Christ. He shows the contrast between the old/new mind, the old/new heart and the old/new will. In our conflict between the old man and the new man he states emphatically that when Christians become partakers of the divine nature, become new creations in Christ, having crucified the old nature with its passions and desires, we are not two personalities, we do not have two natures. We have one nature, the divine nature and what remains is the flesh with the capacity to be carnal (page 44ff).

    In the second section of the book he explains the teaching from Romans 6 where Christians are said to have been crucified with Christ, died with Christ, been buried with Christ and resurrected with Christ. He states that all Christians are to be yielded to the Spirit of God and allowing our sanctification to increase. He spends some time also showing how we are not to use our liberty in Christ to offend the weaker brother and in fact all that we do in life if for Gods glory. Gods glory is our goal in everything we do.

    The third section Pentecost discusses the Christians armor with Eph. 6:10ff as the main text. Then the last part talks about the process of maturity of the believer, that we all should be progressing from milk to meat. In it he says milk does not signify easy doctrine and meat as hard doctrines, rather it is the depth you understand that doctrine.

    This book is theologically sound and was very edifying to read. I did notice he was somewhat repetitive on things, but it was ok by me.
