:How does the doctrine of sanctification shape the Christian life? Offering a fully developed treatment of "accomplished" sanctification, Don Payne explains that the primary biblical focus in sanctification is not progressive growth but that which has already occurred for Christians to make growth possible, necessary, and grace-driven. As Payne explores the significance Scripture attributes to the accomplished aspect of sanctification, he helps us understand that we are already sanctified. Sanctification is not synonymous with transformation but undergirds strategies and resources related to Christian discipleship and formation.
Dr Don J Payne earned a Ph.D. in systematic theology from the University of Manchester, England, an M.Div. from Denver Seminary, and a B.A. from Tennessee Temple University. Prior to coming to Denver Seminary, he pastored for eight years, first as a church-planting pastor in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and then as an associate pastor at Southern Gables Evangelical Free Church in Littleton, Colorado. He has taught courses for Colorado Christian University, Colorado State University, and Moody Bible Institute�s extension school.

Packer and the Evangelical Future [Baker Academic], A Case for Historic Premillennialism, [Baker Academic], and Preparing for Ministry [Kregel], as well as articles and book reviews in The 1995 Seminary & Graduate School Handbook, Themelios, Teaching Theology and Religion Review, Compass, and Focal Point. He has co-authored Discipleship with a Capital D: What the Bible Teaches About Mentoring and Launching and Sustaining Mentoring in Your Ministry Setting [Coalition of Counseling Centers].
