Item description for Growing In Christ by J. I. Packer...
Overview From a senior editor of Christianity Today and the author of the renowned bestseller Knowing God comes a new guide for developing a lasting and sure faith. Written for Christians of all backgrounds and denominations, Packer's book details the core principles of faith, and features outlines and study questions to encourage thought and exploration.
Growing in Christ explains just that--how to grow in Christ. As this book shows, we mature spiritually by carefully learning and thoughtfully living the essentials of the Christian faith that are too often taken for granted or overlooked in our daily lives.
These essentials--so beautifully summarized in the Apostle's Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Commandments--provide the heart of the book, which Dr. Packer explores and applies to daily life in a clear and refreshing way. Study questions and Bible passages follow each chapter for further individual or group study.
Speaking to Christians of all backgrounds and denominations, the newly converted as well as the lifelong believer, Dr. Packer reminds us that Christianity is not instinctive. Ours is a faith that must be learned, and we must never stop striving to mature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Growing In Christ?
Excellent resouce for Bible study Jul 13, 2007
I was particularly looking for a book which handled the Ten Commandments when I came across this title by Dr. Packer. Originally published as I WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN. Covers The Apostles' Creed, Baptism and Conversion, The Lord's Prayer, and The Ten Commandments, by breaking each down into concise studies. Very useful for individual or group.
