From the Back Cover
As the first book in a series of five on the Christian life, The Green Letters emphasizes both the doctrinal and experiential aspects of maturing in Christian living. The book is grounded in Scripture and enlivened by quotations from noted authors. 'Not I, but Christ' is its theme. The author makes this arresting statement regarding the dynamics of the Christian life: 'God . . . doesn't intend to help us live the Christian life. Immaturity considers the Lord Jesus a Helper. Maturity knows Him to be life itself.' Perhaps the greatest drama in the world is the slow and subtle growth of character in the Christian. Beauty of character can be developed only through years of reflection and experience in the Word of God as the life of Christ is increasingly lived by faith. The Christian life is a healthy, robust kind of life. It advances also through trials, for in one who has faith even suffering is not wasted, but becomes a means for increasing spiritual vigor and strength.

The book has been an inspiration to me over the years. I cannot express how helpful this little 90-page book has been to me personally ... time and again. I have bought hundreds of copies in my years of ministry, passing them to individuals with whom I have counseled about spiritual matters. I have bought copies for group studies.
The whole book is great ... do not get me wrong about that. However, Stanford's three chapters on Appropriation, Identification and Consecration (a mere 15 or so pages, should be daily reading for every believer. Those are the areas that so many Christians miss, and, basically, have no clue concerning.
