Mapping the Christian Life: How To Lead Your Congregation Into
Spiritual Health
lays out the stages of a Christian's spiritual journey.
What Pilgrim's Progress did for the church in the 17th century, Mapping
the Christian Life
does for pastoral leaders today, helping them chart the
progress of their members, from the Cross to heaven, as they address five
essential questions:

• Can I trust God?

• How can I serve God?

• How can I help build the kingdom in the face of opposition?

• Is my faith strong enough to hold in the storm?

• What comes next, after the job is done?

Dr. Fleming traces the Christian walk through five distinct stages: Seeker,
Servant, Settler, Sorrower, and Saint. Peering inside the human heart, he
deals with the questions and challenges Christians face at each stage of
life. He then shows pastoral leaders how to help their members become
and remain spiritually healthy through a lifetime of change.

DR. BILL FLEMING JR. has been in ministry 34 years. He
received his B.A. from Asbury College, his M.Div. from
Erskine Theological Seminary, and his D.Min. from Gordon-
Conwell Theological Seminary. Fleming has published articles
in Preaching, The Daily Walk, Christianity Today, and the
Christian Herald. He has served as a youth director, hospice
chaplain, and church planter. Dr. Fleming lives in Waxhaw,
North Carolina, with his wife, Joy. He pastors Oak Ridge
A.R. Presbyterian Church in Lancaster, South Carolina.
