Unto Full Stature is an amazingly gripping book dealing with Christian growth and maturity from a God-centered perspective. This book is progressive in nature, and eminently practical. Anyone who yearns for greater spiritual maturity will find this book to be a fountain of blessing, enlightenment, and challenge.

Unto Full StatureBeginning with the need to gain a God-given perspective and vision, the author proceeds to show that full stature is not something we should postpone until some unknown future, but something that we should be enjoying now. He then proceeds to show that this maturity and growth can only be achieved in co-operation with and in vital union with Christ. Finally, he shows clearly that full stature is not just something for the individual, but for Christ's corporate body in its entirety. Indeed, the author maintains, full stature cannot be fully attained except as one realizes, accepts, and takes his position as a fully functioning member of that corporate body.

Many diagrams and illustrations are used throughout the book to methodically present a step by step approach, through eight levels of spiritual maturity. He expresses hidden reasons why the child of God flounders in vision, lacks spiritual perspective, misunderstands his calling and purpose, disregards the important place of the will, and abuses his body as he zealously lives at exhaustion point.

A few chapter titles will give some idea of the burden and emphasis of this classic volume on spiritual maturity:
"An Awakened Sense of Divine Destiny"
"Four Steps in Liberating the Will"
"The Master Design in the Universe"
"Learning to Cooperate with the Holy Spirit"
"Self-introspection or His Unveiling"
"Occupied with Other Things - Missing Him"

Harold Eberle's Who Is God? asks: What is God doing? Who am I? Why is there suffering and evil? and other key questions that we need to understand.

Who Is God?Harold writes "After years of teaching and preaching to thousands of Christians, I came to a startling conclusion: I had embraced a distorted view of God - one profoundly influenced by our cultural biases. I (and all of the Christians with whom I was associating) believed we had a clear picture of the God who has been revealed in the Bible; however, we unknowingly had looked at God through the Western worldview, which has its roots in Greek and Roman thought.

"Since then, I have discovered that most North American and European Christians hold tightly to a distorted view, and this is robbing them from knowing God more deeply and living as His children."

The Marvelous ExchangeDid We Miss Something at the Cross?

Every Christian has asked it: how do we live the Christian life? How do we overcome the power of sin that still dwells within us and experience the freedom that is our in Christ? Those questions have plagued believers for the last two thousand years. Is there an answer for the seeking heart?

Yes! proclaims Dick Flaten, who both taught and lived God's answer - one Paul lays out most clearly in his letter to the Romans. In this exposition of Paul's key passage, Romans 6.1-14, Dick presents the key to triumphant Christian living: knowing and counting on what God has already accomplished at the cross of Christ, where God resurrected us as new creations in Christ. Through this marvelous exchange we have an entirely new identity, are fully accepted by God, and have been united with Christ, whom we can depend upon to live His miraculous life through us.

This book will help all Christians, especially those who have been believers for many years and have felt demoralized by their continual failings to follow God's desires for their lives. As Christians begin to discover, through Dick's words, that they really can be emancipated from the power of indwelling sin, they will find a peace in their lives that they have never had.

Any time the Spirit of God's kingdom is truly manifested in the earth, it will ultimately confront the strongholds of hell. Indeed, wherever evil spirits have either a foothold or a stronghold, you can expect that the overcoming church will be engaged in warfare, and expect also that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church that Jesus builds.
The Three Battlegrounds
This book explores the three arenas of spiritual warfare which the maturing Christian will face; the mind, the church, and the heavenly places. It provides a foundation of insight, wisdom and discernment on the nature of the battle and the keys to victory.

Here are some quotes from the book: "Victory begins with the name of Jesus on our lips. It is consummated by the nature of Jesus in our hearts," "There are satanic strongholds over countries and communities, and there are strongholds which influence churches and individuals. Wherever a stronghold exists, it is a demonically induced pattern of thinking. Specifically, it is a 'house made of thoughts' which has become a dwelling place for satanic activity." "Is your love growing and becoming softer, brighter, more daring, and more visible? Or is it becoming more discriminating, more calculating, less vulnerable, and less available? This is a very important issue, for your Christianity is only as real as your love is. A measurable decrease in your ability to love is evidence that a stronghold of cold love is developing within you." "There is a war, a very ancient war, between the spirit of Elijah and the spirit of Jezebel. In this age-old battle, Elijah represents the interests of heaven: the call to repentance and the return to God. Jezebel, on the other hand, represents that unique principality whose purpose is to hinder and defeat the work of repentance."

How Should Christians Vote?It is one of our favorite questions - is God a Republican or a Democrat?

"Many, if not most, Christians begin with the wrong question of who they should vote for rather than the more important question of how they should vote. Asking the correct question is fundamental to knowing how to arrive at the correct answer."

Scriptural principles exist for both our personal and our political quandaries. We should be willing to dig deep to find them and move beyond voting based on tradition or mere preferences. Dr Tony Evans takes on foundational questions of a Christian approach to politics.
  • What does the Bible say about the role and responsibilities of government?
  • How can we be salt and light amidst political disappointments?
  • Should we submit to candidates we didn't vote for?
  • What if we don't know who to choose, or worse - what if there is no good choice?
Evans won't pressure you to check this box or that, but he will equip you with solid biblical principles that will challenge you to vote with a "kingdom perspective" - informed, compassionate, and aware of who is really in charge.
