This book balances biblical content with practical application about the what, why, and how of spiritual formation. It is an excellent source for individuals, small groups and entire congregations to study and apply in order to bridge the gap between numerical growth and spiritual immaturity among many members. It goes beyond most books on spiritual formation by beginning with the nature of the Triune God, who has always existed in community, moves to the nature of humanity created in His image and likeness, and how individuals can mature to functionally relate as God does. Three appendixes include relevant pondering questions for each chapter, an eleven-week program for spiritual formation, and a comprehensive assessment tool for measuring progress. It is biblical, practical, understandable, and usable.
