Many Christians admit to feeling somewhat intimidated by the subject of holiness and Christlike living… but the expectation from Scripture is undeniably clear. Burr and Fleagle argue that the open secret to growing in the image of Christ lies in obedience to His commands. Using an encouraging, guilt-free approach that avoids any tendency toward legalism, the authors discuss eleven specific commands given by Jesus and show how believers can fulfill them in the power of the Holy Spirit.
