“Changed Into His Likeness” by Gary Millar is a good read on biblical personal transformation. Around 250 pages, the book addresses many topics, including:
– Definition of personal transformation.
– Life between the time a person accepts Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (salvation is a free gift and cannot be earned) and when Jesus Christ’s Second Coming.
– Examples from the Bible of people’s personal transformation after they encountered God.
– How Jesus Christ makes a difference in a person’s life.
– What the Old Testament says about personal change.
– New Testament books’ description on change.
– Ways God changes us.
I have read enough of the book to know what I like about the title:
– Relatively easy to read and understand.
– Covers many relevant topics.
– Good flow from topic to topic.
– Good description of biblical examples of people changing.
– Good examples of spiritual and practical insights.
Good read and will be read again more slowly and deeply in the future. Recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
