In Pursuit of the Christ-Shaped Life (Hardcover)
Perhaps we don't always think of our life as having a ""shape."" But the life of Jesus certainly had a shape, and we are called to imitate him. Paul's letter to the Philippians presents us with this call in many ways: encouragements and exhortations toward faithfulness, personal examples, and a rich theology of the cross. This book is a mediation on the call of Philippians to embrace God's gift of a Christ-shaped life. Such a life is both an unshakable promise of God which defines our destiny and a personal responsibility to be embraced each day. In this book, you are invited to ponder the desires of your heart and to lay them at the feet of our Lord, who alone is worthy of our desire and who alone can reshape our hearts after the image of his own. Here we find that the process of being formed after the image of Christ is not only a matter of supreme importance, but also of overwhelming joy, in which we learn the delight of singing with Christ the great song of self-giving love.
