Publisher's Summary

“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18)

How do Christians grow? Few question the call of the Bible to grow in godliness, but the answer to exactly how this happens is often elusive.

In this audiobook, Dane Ortlund points believers to Christ, making the case that sanctification does not happen by doing more or becoming better, but by going deeper into the wondrous gospel truths that washed over them when they were first united to him.

Drawing on wisdom from figures throughout church history, Ortlund encourages listeners to fix their gaze on Jesus in the battle against sin, casting themselves upon his grace and living out their invincible identity in Christ.

Disappointing

I listening to this book by Ortlund after listening to his book Gentle and Lowly, which was excellent. This was not. It rambles, is incoherent and one gets lost in why it was even written. Seems like a follow up to the aforementioned book to make money. Couldn’t get through it

One of the best books I’ve ever read.

It was a privilege to read this book. I will be rereading again soon. The simple take on many complicated pointsu of theology was a blessing to me.

Don’t rush this book

Don’t rush this book. It is like a slow walk with Jesus, contemplating various ways He uses the simple “elementary principles” to woo us into deeper love for him. Read it slowly. Read it with Him and with others.

Listen more than once!

I have listened to the nine times now as I go about my day and each time I hear something new.. It is full of the 'how to' listen, look and think of Jesus and I needed that simplicity. It's helped me to cut through the many ways I was looking in the wrong direction and has re-awoken the Holy Spirit in me.. What a blessing.. Thank you.. 🙏
