1st review: Stanford's work is a tour de force of the Christian faith. Using the promises of the Bible, Stanford systematically shows the believer what squi's position in Christ is and what that means in the everyday walk with the Lord. The truths in this book are foundational, transformational, and empowering.

2nd time through: I still cherish this book as a means of showing just how powerfully God has transformed the believer. Stanford is still the best writer I've found at articulating the identification truths, why they are so important, and how to manifest them in my day-to-day life (I've got a long way to go on that front). He also emphasizes the time element: it will take eternity to be molded into the image of Christ, but, fortunately, an eternity is exactly what we have.

The book does get a bit repetitive--it's a collection of essays after all. And Stanford has a tendency to rant at times. Still, it is one of the most valuable Christian works I've ever read.
