-Jerry Bridges, author, The Pursuit of
Holiness

"Stephen Smallman's stories of how God brings people to new life in Christ are exhilarating-and his refreshing insights into the process of conversion are also immensely encouraging to anyone who wants to share his or her faith."

-Ellen Vaughn, author of Radical
Gratitude
, The Strand, and, with Chuck Colson,
Being the Body, The Body, Kingdoms in
Conflict
, Gideon's Torch, Against the Night,
and other books

"Any campus ministry passionate about students' lives being transformed will want this book in the hands of their front-line campus staff. Stephen Smallman has renewed my own biblical understanding of God's prior work in the hearts of 'not yet believers' while inspiring me to embrace my role as a spiritual midwife in the lives of college students."

-Bruce Alwood, Southeast Regional Director,
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

"Spiritual Birthline transforms that most dangerous journey-one's spiritual pilgrimage-into safe, known territory. By applying a pastor's heart and a willing ear to hundreds of testimonies heard over decades of ministry, Stephen Smallman has distilled the work of God in the soul: 'When God calls, we come.'
In place of our too-often clichéd born-again narratives, he guides us to a richer understanding that is wonderfully profound and reassuringly practical."
