The Christian life is defined by growth. Few question the call of the Bible to grow in godliness, but the answer to exactlyhowthis happens is often elusive.
In his newest book,Deeper, pastor and author Dane Ortlund takes Christians into the deep structures of biblical teaching on how they grow in grace—most fundamentally, by enjoying all that is already theirs in Christ. Ortlund brings believers into the fullness of Christ, the emptiness of self-reliance, and their need for union and communion with God. This book makes the case that a believer’s sanctification does not happen bydoing moreorbecoming better, but by goingdeeperinto the wondrous gospel truths that washed over them when they were first united to Christ. Each of its 9 chapters encourages readers to fix their gaze on Jesus in the battle against sin, casting themselves upon his grace.
“This lovely, easy-to-read primer by Dane Ortlund grounds our discipleship in the glowing center of Christianity—our Lord Jesus. It’s easy to think that as we grow as Christians, we move on to ‘higher things’ (whatever that means!), when in fact we simply need to learn the beauty and depth of Jesus and all that he’s done for us. That’s what Ortlund helps us do here. This book will bless you!”
Paul E. Miller, author,A Praying LifeandJ-Curve: Dying and Rising with Jesus in Everyday Life
“That angst in your soul for more is a part of the growing process—a gift of hunger and thirst that Jesus, the inexhaustible well, will fill. InDeeper, Dane Ortlund reminds us that the angst is satisfied not by behavioral modification or some quick fix but by the beauty of friendship with Jesus and the peace more deeply accepted in our souls. If you are hungry and thirsty for more life, more joy, more peace, and more Jesus, this is a book for you.”

“Jesus said that our greatest ‘work’ is to believe. As much as any living author, Dane Ortlund has helped me to believe again by reacquainting me with the stunning tenderness and beauty of Jesus. As I read his words, I can sense my heart growing in trust, devotion, and godly affections, grounded in the Savior’s love for me. In this incredibly helpful, pastoral book, Dane works out the implications of that vision of Jesus for personal growth, showing us how the key to going further with Jesus is going deeper in his finished work.”
