Item description for The Green Letters: Principles of Spiritual Growth by Miles J. Stanford...

This is the first book in the author's series on Christian maturity.

Publishers Description
As the first book in a series of five on the Christian life, The Green Letters emphasizes both the doctrinal and experiential aspects of maturing in Christian living. The book is grounded in Scripture and enlivened by quotations from noted authors. 'Not I, but Christ' is its theme. The author makes this arresting statement regarding the dynamics of the Christian life: 'God . . . doesn't intend to help us live the Christian life. Immaturity considers the Lord Jesus a Helper. Maturity knows Him to be life itself.' Perhaps the greatest drama in the world is the slow and subtle growth of character in the Christian. Beauty of character can be developed only through years of reflection and experience in the Word of God as the life of Christ is increasingly lived by faith. The Christian life is a healthy, robust kind of life. It advances also through trials, for in one who has faith even suffering is not wasted, but becomes a means for increasing spiritual vigor and strength.

Reviews - What do customers think about Green Letters?

Amazing study  Apr 10, 2010
I used this book for a young adults small group study. While small, it packs quite a punch. It is definitely more "solid food" and truly changed the way I think about things. This book will challenge you!
Green Letters  Apr 7, 2010
Very condensed and well thought out material, not the sort of thing you read anymore today
Great help for the Christian walk!  Apr 7, 2010
I first became acquainted with "The Green Letters" back in the mid-70's. God inspired Miles J. Stanford to clearly and succinctly capture the basic dynamics of the victorious Christian walk.

The book has been an inspiration to me over the years. I cannot express how helpful this little 90-page book has been to me personally ... time and again. I have bought hundreds of copies in my years of ministry, passing them to individuals with whom I have counseled about spiritual matters. I have bought copies for group studies.

The whole book is great ... do not get me wrong about that. However, Stanford's three chapters on Appropriation, Identification and Consecration (a mere 15 or so pages, should be daily reading for every believer. Those are the areas that so many Christians miss, and, basically, have no clue concerning.

Buy it! Read it! Apply it!
ponderous  Aug 5, 2009
This is a classic in Christian literature and one they say should be read by every Christian, and I suppose I can see why. It covers the basics of faith and there is some good stuff contained within, but I found Stanford's writing style to be very ponderous and just uninteresting which made it hard to follow. There are better Christian writers to read.
A classic, and will remain as such for years to come.  Jun 23, 2009
A certain amount of Christianity is reliant upon the energy source of religious flesh which works to cover its nakedness with all of the traditional religious fig leaves.
All focused on keeping the outside of the cup clean.
Some try to convince themselves that within, the old man no longer exists functionally, or has absolutely no influence in their lives.
These always remind me of the story of the prince with no clothes :^]
Religious pride, and religious flesh are geniuses at fooling their own.

Lewis Sperry Chafer:
We are not exhorted to reckon the sin nature to be dead; but we are exhorted to reckon ourselves to be dead unto it.
What a deliverance and walk may be experienced, since it is according to the power and glory of the resurrection!
In that new sphere and by that new power the Christian may now "walk."

Watchman Nee
The old man" is the flesh. Sin is the chief motivating power of the flesh, because sin is in the flesh (Rom. 7:17). (In the Bible, sin in the singular always refers to the original sin or the nature of sin. First John 1:8 says, "If we say that we do not have sin..." Then verse 10 says, "If we say that we have not sinned..." "Sin" is the nature and root of sin within us, and to have "sinned" is what "sin" has done as an act.) The old man must be crucified, and sin has to be removed. We do not crucify the old man with our own strength. Rather, we trust in God for the fact that He has accomplished for us. God's fact is, "Our old man has been crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be annulled, that we should no longer serve sin as slaves" (Rom. 6:6). We are those "who have died to sin" (v. 2) and "have been baptized into His death" (v. 3).

The principles of Reckoning have been considered focal and foundational understanding by many bible teachers who have been classified as mentors in spiritual growth.

Miles J Stanford is one such author, and thousands have been weaned from the bottle of religious self-life through his teachings. You will find the book is almost all quotes from a long assortment of authors.

It is true that Standford's writings are not appreciated by today's reformed camp, as Stanford quite effectively critiqued these teachings.
I would heartily recommend you looking over his web-site if your examining reformed theology.
He is quite good at it, and you'll get an eye full!!

The "The Green Letters" is a classic, and will remain as such for years to come.
