Rescue: Salvation, the Holy Spirit, the Church

Rescue: Salvation, the Holy Spirit, the Church

by J. Scott Duvall




How do we conform to the image of Jesus Christ? How do we grow in maturity as believers? How do we truly live out and experience all that God is and all that He offers to us?

The Experiencing God’s Story series answers these questions and more through an examination of twelve essential topics of spiritual formation. Presented through the three-step process of spiritual development—believing, behaving, and becoming—each topic examines a passage of Scripture, identifies and explains the theological principles of spiritual formation, and offers personal application for continued spiritual growth.
