Publisher's summary

“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18)

How do Christians grow? Few question the call of the Bible to grow in godliness, but the answer to exactly how this happens is often elusive.

In this audiobook, Dane Ortlund points believers to Christ, making the case that sanctification does not happen by doing more or becoming better, but by going deeper into the wondrous gospel truths that washed over them when they were first united to him.

Drawing on wisdom from figures throughout church history, Ortlund encourages listeners to fix their gaze on Jesus in the battle against sin, casting themselves upon his grace and living out their invincible identity in Christ.

Disappointing

I listening to this book by Ortlund after listening to his book Gentle and Lowly, which was excellent. This was not. It rambles, is incoherent and one gets lost in why it was even written. Seems like a follow up to the aforementioned book to make money. Couldn’t get through it

Don’t rush this book

Don’t rush this book. It is like a slow walk with Jesus, contemplating various ways He uses the simple “elementary principles” to woo us into deeper love for him. Read it slowly. Read it with Him and with others.

One of the best books I’ve ever read.

It was a privilege to read this book. I will be rereading again soon. The simple take on many complicated pointsu of theology was a blessing to me.

No word wasted or frivolous

Every encounter is rich and summarized succinctly last pages; love hearing writer read so accentuating is in keeping with intention

A Deeper Relationship with Christ

I have listened to over 50 audible books and by far this has been most impactful to me. Not only does Dane Ortlund not only tells but shows how God is waiting for our intimacy with Him. Can’t wait until the next book gets authored.

So much to take in

This is going to take a another read at least. There is so much to take in. Dane Orlund’s presentation is so easy to follow, but he gives you so much to absorb. Terrific read for any Christian.
