I picked this book up when it was offered for free, put it in the appropriate categories, and almost forgot that I had it. Given the length in which it treats it's subject, I expected it to be one of those volumes you have to wade through in hopes of picking up a nugget of truth here and perhaps a pithy statement there, but otherwise uninteresting. However, I marked it as a reference for a study on sanctification, and I am everlastingly glad I did. The entire book is a rare jewel of biblical truth balanced with practical application. The four main sections on Knowledge, Faith, Character, and Action thoroughly explain, illustrate, and apply each of these key aspects of our journey toward Christlikeness. It avoids the shallowness of so many modern "self-help" books published on the Christian life by laying a solid biblical foundation for each element of its subject matter while simultaneously putting them well within reach of the "average" Christian. It is weighty without being wearisome. Simple, without being shallow. It is not only highly readable, but will be a book you will reference repeatedly over the years.
