Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
How to Grow: Applying the Gospel to All of Your Life
Moody Publishers, 2018, 192 pages
Darryl Dash, Pastor of Liberty Grace Church in Toronto, loves the transforming power of the gospel to change us. Growth in Christ makes us more human, more like the people we were meant to be. Christians can be stuck, not only spiritually but in many areas of life. His approach is not moralism or adding more sermons to your diet. He aims to capture us with the redemptive story of Scripture, apply that truth to every area of our life, and help us learn how to practice new habits that will move us toward maturity in Christ. The book is gospel-rich, whole-person, and practical. In the context of the church, he develops core habits that we need to master, step by step, to put us in the way of grace in order to see progress in our joy and holiness. But don’t settle only for your own growth, it’s meant to go from ordinary people into the lives of others.
