Many popular views try to reduce the process of Christian growth to a single template. For example: Remember past grace. Rehearse your identity in Christ. Avail yourself of the means of grace. Discipline yourself. But Scripture portrays the dynamics of sanctification in a rich variety of ways. No single factor, truth or protocol can capture why and how a person is changed into the image of Christ.
Weaving together personal stories, biblical exposition and theological reflection, David Powlison shows the personal and particular ways that God meets you where you are to produce change. He highlights the variety of factors that work together, helping us to avoid sweeping generalisations and pat answers in the search for a key to sanctification. This book is a go-to resource for understanding the multifaceted, lifelong, personal journey of sanctification.
"How Does Sanctification Work? will refresh the souls of all who desire to grow in authentic holiness. The reader will find no 'one-size-fits-all' formulas here, but rather the wise, biblical counsel of a refined theological mind..."? - R. Kent Hughes, Visiting Professor of practical theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
