Meet the Author

B. R. Hicks is the founder and President of Christ Gospel Churches International, Inc. a world-wide church located in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Before the Christian world commonly accepted women ministers, Rev. Hicks felt called to preach, a call she resisted because in her day, women were not supposed to be leaders. She persevered past many obstacles to share a love for studying the Bible. Without setting out to do so, she built her own Christian organization and over time has published over 100 books. Sometimes controversial and disconcerting, her works contain brilliant insights into Scripture that other Biblical scholars miss. Her emphasis is on a personal journey of growth toward spiritual enlightenment, as one develops a personal relationship with Christ that transforms the inner self to conform to Christ's nature.

The church in Jeffersonville has 1,000 members, and in addition to a sanctuary seating 2,800 people, there are several more buildings, including a modern building for international and national offices, a facility for recording and publishing, a prayer chapel, a fellowship hall, educational buildings and a gymnasium. Twice a year, the international conventions that are held in Jeffersonville draw over 2,000 attendees.

How do I grow in God?  The author gives the answer to this important question by revealing pictures of spiritual growth found in the Old and New Testaments.  She explains how the seven pieces of furniture of hte Mosaic Tabernacle is a picture of the sincere Christian's growth starting from salvation to crowning Jesus Christ as the Merciful Head over all things (Romans 8:28).  A pattern of Christian growth is also seen in Israel's journey from Egypt to Canaan's Land and in Mark 4:26-29.  I have used this book in a small group Bible study, and everyone found it fascinating!

If your desire is to grow more spiritually as a Christian I wouldn't pass on this book. It uses the Mosaic Tabernacle kind of as a map for how to grow spiritually. It also compares ones spiritual growth to the growth cycle of a corn seed. It was a simple but very creative way the author used to interpret spiritual growth. You'll also find out about the different clothing that will be worn in Heaven based on ones spiritual growth. If I've planted a 'seed' in your mind of what this book offers, then I recommend reading it and 'letting it grow.'

Becoming Mature in Christ: Secrets to Spiritual Growth is a awesome guideline for becoming a mature Christian. The author explains in detail [ Ephesians 4:11-16 ], which is about the stature of Christ. Hicks shows how The Seven Pieces of Furniture in The Mosaic Tabernacle fits together with the Christian walk . By this reading this book I have realized a life long desire: to be able to grow spiritually . The author has awakened a new desire to grow in Christ. This book is a must read for all who want to grow in Christ.

This books explains spiritual growth by comparing it to the natural such as tree and how it begins as a seed first, then roots-plant etc. The natural types the spiritual and one way to comprehend spiritual growth is to study how things grow naturally. Also, it expounds on the different types of rewards and places of abode for christians. You will learn a lot from this book.

God’s Inspired Scriptures Profit Growth!   The Bible tells us that God commanded Christian believers to grow; we do this by daily seeking new Truth in His Holy Word. In a day and age where many Christians have fallen spiritually asleep, it is of utmost importance that those desiring continual growth encompass themselves with Truth. The author makes a comparative analysis of the Mosaic Tabernacle and Jesus’ Tabernacle: the functions at each piece of furniture in the Old Testament which were needful in order to get closer to God, parallel steps of growth in Christ’s Stature that are needful for Christian believers today in order to get closer to God. Jesus Christ is our perfect example of how to walk through life with our minds on eternity. Where we “wind up” on the other side totally depends on our growth in God on this side. Those who accept Jesus Christ’s sacrificial way of the Cross receive forgiveness of sins and pardon from the punishment that sin merits, as seen at the sacrifices made at the Brazen Altar, the bottom, or feet, of the Mosaic Tabernacle. However, growth doesn’t have to stop there! In the Bible, God has given clear instructions for those who desire to grow into the heights of Christ’s Stature. This book also contains wonderful pictures and diagrams to help one unmistakably see God’s Orderly Plan for spiritual growth.
