Publishers Description What does a relationship with God look like and how do we obtain it? It is vital for church leaders to grapple seriously with this question, for pat answers no longer suffice. Lives well-lived, not just words eloquently spoken, must become our response. The quality of our relationship with God is what will influence the health, potency, and witness of the church in an increasingly complex and hostile world.Designed for use as a college or seminary course, Conformed to His Image helps us build our lives on a fully biblical perspective. Exploring twelve approaches to Christian spirituality in depth, Dr. Kenneth Boa corrects our tendency to pick and compartmentalize. Pointing the way instead to an integrative, whole-life approach, Dr. Boa shows how each spiritual paradigm discussed is just one important facet in the gem of authentic and powerful New Testament living.With chapter overviews and objectives, questions for personal application, a glossary, and a list of key terms, Conformed to His Image will prove a defining text for the student, pastor, and church leader of today . . . and tomorrow. 12 Facets of the Complete Christian LifeRelational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Others CompassionatelyParadigm Spirituality: Cultivating an Eternal versus a Temporal PerspectiveDisciplined Spirituality: Engaging in the Historical DifferencesExchanged Life Spirituality: Grasping Our True Identity in ChristMotivated Spirituality: A Set of Biblical IncentivesDevotional Spirituality: Falling in Love with GodHolistic Spirituality: Every Component of Life under the Lordship of ChristProcess Spirituality: Being versus Doing, Process versus ProductSpirit-Filled Spirituality: Walking in the Power of the SpiritWarfare Spirituality: The World, the Flesh, and the DevilNurturing Spirituality: A Lifestyle of Discipleship and EvangelismCorporate Spirituality: Encouragement, Accountability, and Worship

Awesome Book! Jan 5, 2007
This book is meant to be read and studied. It can be life-changing if you let it.
Great Book Jan 3, 2007
Kenneth Boa defines 12 facets of the Christian life and deals with each one in a thoroughly practical, yet deeply theological way. He does seem to think that Christians can be demon-possessed, a view which I do not hold. In spite of that, I recommend the book to the seasoned Christan. Written in textbook style, it makes for extended Bible studies for mid-week gatherings, home studies, etc. There are a great number of resources from which he cites quotes, and the cost of the book is worth the resource list alone. I particularly enjoyed the facet about the Christian Disciplines. In a day of hyper-faith, wealth, prosperity, and health gospel, this book is a refreshing return to sanity. I wish I had it years ago.
Different aspects in our pursuit of knowing God intimately Jul 31, 2006
Excellent overview of different aspects of the Christian life and following close after God. Looks at different techniques of a hard pursuit of God.
Getting to know God Mar 13, 2006
Author, Kenneth Boa, has put together a comprehensive text that covers 12 major approaches that mankind has taken throughout history in an attempt to know and follow God. He stresses our need for a variety of approaches. The text looks overwhelming. But, in actuality, the chapters are short enough to cover in one sitting. Each ends with questions that cause the reader to do some deep personal intropspection. And they lead to some powerful group discussions in our women's Bible study group.
A Critical and Concise Look at Spiritual Transformation Mar 10, 2006
This book delivers a thorough and concise exposition of spiritual growth. The writer is not afraid to view each segment of spritual growth with a critical and honest evaluation, even at the expense of irritating some closed-mind readers or even those of us that hate being found to think wrongly or without basis regarding what we believe. This deserves a place on the required reading list of every Bible student or anyone else seeking a deeper understanding of maturity. Keep it with your commentaries and dictionaries for future reference.
