Publishers Description 'Not I, but Christ.' That brief phrase reflects our complete dependency on Jesus for everything that the Christian life is about, from right standing with God, to spiritual growth, to personal well being, to practical service. In four words, it captures the essence and sweep of The Complete Green Letters. The language of The Complete Green Letters may have a classic flavor, but the remarkable insight and spiritual penetration are thoroughly and refreshingly contemporary. Drawing from the spiritual heritage of the Keswick Convention, these beloved writings by Miles J. Stanford comment powerfully on the true nature of spirituality. Here in one volume, in logical order, are: The Green Letters: Principles of Spiritual Growth The Principle of Position: Foundations of Spiritual Growth The Ground of Growth: The Christian s Relationship to the Cross and the Risen Christ The Reckoning That Counts: The Realization of Spiritual Growth Abide Above: A Guide to Spiritual Growth A sound apprehension of the deeper life can make the difference between progress or frustration, peace or turmoil. If you desire a better understanding of what it means to serve Christ, his church, and the world around you, The Complete Green Letters shines light on the path of spiritual growth."

A must for anyone who ever doubts their salvation. Jan 30, 2007
Well worth the read. All of us at some time or other has doubts, questions and needs to be strengthened in their knowledge of the finished work of the cross. This book makes great strides in those directions.

This book is a gem; it remains one of my favorites-- to read and re-read. It brought about a turning point in my Christian life, and introduced me to many other helpful authors.

God has stripped away my dependence on most modern authors and led me to this book. It has been like the missing piece to the puzzle of how to live a victorious life in Christ. I have also been able to obtain most of his recommended 'further growth reading' material, much early 20th century. If you have a hungry heart (you'll know if you do!), you must read this book.
Christianity is Christ ....It is all about Him Oct 14, 2005
"By Grace you have been saved through faith." (eph 2:8-9) I know i'm saved by grace but how am i to live the Christian life??? The bible says "as you received Christ Jesus the Lord so walk in Him."(col 2:6) How did you recieve Him? "Did you recieve the Spirit by the works of the law of by the hearing of faith? are you so foolish having begun in the Spirit are you now being made perfect by the flesh." (galatians 3:2-4) "the letter kills but the Spirit gives life" (2 corithians 3:6)Jesus said "i am the Life" (John 14:10) Only Christ can live the Christian life - the Christian life isn't an imitation but a participation in the life of another. "I am the Vine you are the branches." (John 15) The whole Christian life in Christ is "by grace through faith."
This is a wonderful book - he points to Christ and His completed work on the cross, "our old man was crucified with Him." That is a historic fact. We die to sin not by our experiences but by the believing of the fact of what He has done. Now day by day we get to walk less and less according to the flesh and more and more according to the Spirit - by faith believing on His work of the crucified and risen Jesus. It is by knowing our POSITION (standing) in Christ and what He has done that we are able to grow in our CONDITION (walk, fellowship and growth) in Him day by day. The basis of the Christ life is faith .....faith in God's fact - that is in the God who cannot lie! I recommend this book so highly.
"but we with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are beng transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord."(2 cor 3:18)

I've since changed my view of this title and would give it 1 star. Its simplistic down home feel is deceptive. In it's place I'd suggest Dr. Beeke's "Reformed Puritan Spirituality" or Richard Baxter's "The Reformed Pastor." For spiritual direction and personal worship have a look at "The Valley of Vision."
