In this book, Dane Ortlund (pastor in the Chicago area) points believers to Christ, making the case that sanctification does not happen by doing more or becoming better, but by going deeper into gospel truths. Drawing on wisdom from church leaders throughout church history, Ortlund encourages readers to fix their gaze on Jesus in the battle against sin, by casting themselves upon his grace and living out their identity in Christ.
