What does it mean to be created in God's image?
In his usual pragmatic, readable style, Dr Chant presents a biblical, practical, no-nonsense picture of living in the image of God. He covers a vast range of subjects - knowing who you are, positive living, dealing with stress and worry, using the imagination in a creative way, the power of faith, getting on with other people, understanding and enjoying your sexuality, praying effectively, being filled with the Spirit, spiritual disciplines and many others.
This is a book for everyone. It is written for the general reader but includes study sections for those who want to explore biblical and theological depths further.
it is a kind of blueprint for life - a handbook for just doing what the Bible teaches, day in and day out. It's inspirational, it's encouraging, it's biblical, it's practical. One reading won't be enough. You'll come back to it again and again.
"Dr Barry Chant encapsulates the heart of what it means to be a new creation in Christ. I hope that this book will serve to inspire and empower you to better impact your circle of family, friends and greater world in Jesus' name."
- Pastor Brian Houston, Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church, Sydney.
