More About This Textbook

Overview

Practical and realistic, Experiencing God's Story of Life and Hope leads believers through the process of growing spiritually. Bringing his skills and expertise to bear, Scott Duvall guides readers as they look at what they believe, how they behave, and who they are becoming-three essential considerations in spiritual growth.

Each brief, four-to-five page lesson begins with a close examination of Scripture and ends with personal application. In each chapter, Duvall teaches Christians a thoroughly biblical approach to spiritual maturity, allowing God to work in their lives.

Praise for Experiencing God's Story of Life and Hope:

"Everybody talks about the integration of biblical studies, theology, and spiritual formation, but few do it well. This clear and practical workbook is a delightful exception. . . . Scott Duvall writes as both pastor and professor, using an engaging style full of illustrations and relevant quotations. The volume will serve as an excellent textbook for courses on spiritual formation as well as for theology courses that seek to take students beyond propositional truth to the transformation of the soul."
-Mark L. Strauss
Professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary

"Everything Scott Duvall writes is clear, accurate and relevant. This latest work is no different. A miniature systematic theology, with implications for spiritual formation, it includes workbook style questions on both content and application of key texts. Belief, behavior, and becoming are all coordinated for each major Christian doctrine. An outstanding primer for the novice, the book can also stimulate review, repentance, and refreshment for the seasoned believer. Highly recommended."
-Craig Blomberg
Distinguished Professor of the New Testament, Denver Seminary

"Scott Duvall addresses head-on the perennial student question of So what? with guided questions to help students see why spiritual formation matters. A popular and beloved professor, Duvall's twenty years of college teaching and pastoring have resulted in a book of profound truth with insightful simplicity."
-E. Randolph Richards
Dean of the School of Ministry, Palm Beach Atlantic University

"Here is an approach to the spiritual life permeated with biblical wisdom-theological, applicable, readable, and eminently useful. A primer on knowing Jesus and following Him in today's world."
-Timothy George
Dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University
Senior Editor, Christianity Today

"Scott Duvall has made another solid contribution to theological education with his latest work on spiritual formation. His workbook is doctrinally sound and practical in application. . . . This workbook promises to become a main text for colleges and seminaries that are serious about spiritual formation development for their students."
-Craig Price
Dean of Students, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
