Item description for The Upward Call: Spiritual Formation and the Holy Life by Freeborn...

Overview
Many Christians today hear the upward call of God to holiness. But they do not know how to answer the call. In a moment of inspiration they hear the still, small voice and catch a glimpse of a land filled with rare spiritual vistas. They treasure the vision and sense a deep hunger of the soul for more of God. But in the "maddening maze of things"-such as car pools, night classes, music lessons, soccer practice, and church committee meetings-the vision fades and on they go, stumbling along the Mediocre Way instead of the Highway of Holiness. The Upward Call presents a marriage between the Wesleyan teaching of holiness and the spiritual formation tradition. Following this unique approach, the authors offer a fresh, compelling, and practical description of what if means to respond to that hunger of the soul-to heed the upward call of God to a holy life of growing Christlikeness. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Phil. 3:14, NKJV

Publishers Description
Four gifted communicators present a unique marriage between the Wesleyan teaching of holiness and the spiritual formation tradition. The result is a compelling expression of what it means to heed the call to a life of growing Christlikeness. Paper.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Upward Call: Spiritual Formation and the Holy Life?

This book helps settle the "Who am I, Why am I here?" qstn.  Jan 14, 2000
With so much emphasis on self-help books, "The Upward Call" targets the true purpose for our lives. Spiritual development is not a matter of self-achievement, self-help, or self-discipline, according to this book, but strictly a matter of a relationship with God. This book clearly points out a path, with strong Weslyan foundations, to a meaningful, fulfilling relationship with God. It directs us to become "the whole person in relationship with God, with-in the community of belivevers, growing in Christlikeness, reflected in a Spirit-directed, disciplined lifestyle, and demonstrated in actions that lead others to redemption."

A life-changing read.
