Christianity as possession is not simply an experience of salvation in the past, nor simply a status once for all bestowed. It is a high and holy vocation to be fulfilled in all who name Christ’s name. We dare not rest until we attain to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

This book addresses our consciences about the character of our Christian way. Is the

Honestly, I was really disappointed with this book. A friend of mine recommended it so I decided to buy it and give it a try. The book felt too "strict" in actually not rejoicing in the grace regarding the various sin areas in our lives. The book overall just wasn't very well organized or put together in a logical way. I can't quite figure out why, but the book felt more condemning than grace-filled, which is ironic given the title of the book. Some of the analogies and chapters were too simplis ...more

I'm so glad that this book is over. Some good points but too many quotes from other people and not enough of Brett's own opinion. His opinion also didn't take into account the different walks of a Christian. ...more

This was a tough book to read, not because it was bad, but because it dealt with a tough subject. Murray G. Brett wrote this book as a plea that we (the readers) do the will of God.

An excellent book that really challenged me to grow up and mature in my faith. It challenged me to lay down everything that could possibly take the place of God in my life. Laying my gold in the dust as they put it and making God alone my gold and my greatest treasure. I have been challenged to delight in God's law so much that I become ravished by the moral beauty of His law and experience personally the moral excellence of it. This is a book I will continue to study and use as it is loaded wit ...more

You already know a book is going to be fantastic when the books opens up with the declaration of man's purpose: to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

I highly recommend this book to any Christian who desires to deepen their communion with God. The whole book is about what it means to abide in Christ, and how it looks practically within the Christian's life. I enjoyed this book because it not only had deep theology, but it made theology practical. We were made to know Christ, and to make Christ kn

Absolutely love this book. There was a lot of small gray areas this book helped to shine light on. Looking forward to improving on those. This book is also great for a study group, looking forward to doing that in a couple of months.

This was a good book.
isn't too big, but it has a lot of information and teaching within its pages.
It covers the topic of growing in a personal relationship with Christ.
