    “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.
