"This book is small in size but seed-like in nature. From its teaching strong and healthy Christian lives may be developed. It is a book to be read and reread, to be pondered frequently, applied constantly, and shared with others."
(Sinclair B. Ferguson ~ Associate Preacher, St Peter's Free Church, Dundee, Scotland)

Of course, there are many books that have been written on this subject, and for believers at every level of maturity. New Christians would be hard-pressed to do better that William Still’s “Towards Spiritual Maturity: Overcoming All Evil In The Christian Life.”
A pastor in Scotland for over 50 years (and a mentor to others like Sinclair Ferguson), Still begins with the fact that Christ’s sacrifice has secured our reconciliation and hence our peace with God. he then moves on to what Christ specifically accomplished at Calvary: the removal of sins, the overthrow of sin’s dominion over our lives, and the defeat of Satan, the Christian’s enemy.
However, Still is clear that while all of this is true, the believer must continue to deal with sin in our everyday lives. For this reasons, he details all that God has given to His people to combat sin and grow in grace--especially helpful is his section on the weapons of the Christian’s warfare (Ephesians 6:10-18).
“Towards Spiritual Maturity” is theologically sound and written in simple language. Hence, it will be helpful to all who read it. While I believe it will be helpful to all believers, I especially recommend it to newer Christians.
