Aug 28, Karen L. This is a fabulous discipleship book compiled of all of the most wonderful traditions of Christianity from the early church fathers to the 20th century Christian thinkers such as C.
Lewis and Francis Schaefer sp? It is both Evangelical and Catholic in its material. It’s only draw back is that it has so much spiritual meat in itthat it is like taking a drink from a fire hose!

The answers to many questions are here. Feb 04, Andy rated it it was amazing Shelves: In His Image has taken different aspects of spiritual formation and grouped them together in facets that show various ways that people can grow to be more like Christ. Boa outlines 12 facets that lead to spiritual formation in the believer. Going through the book, I responded differently to each facet.
Below is a summary of what kenneh facet entails. Relational spirituality focuses on loving God more fully and intimately, loving ourselves correctly and seeing ourselves the imagw God see us in Christ and loving others the way God has loved us.
We grow as keenneth love God, ourselves and others the right way. This is an inside out approach that starts with our needs and desires as humans and how God fulfills them.
Bboa spirituality again, to me connects with the previous facets in that it focuses on our inward desires and motives, specifically the need miage security, significance, and fulfillment. With a Christ-centered and eternal perspective, we are motivated by our a fear and respect of God, love for God, love of others, eternal rewards, identity, purpose, and longing.
Process spirituality focuses on the process by which we donformed out of our identity in Christ, again an inside out mindset. Holistic spirituality focuses on putting Christ as the center of all things jmage all areas of our life work, relationships, etc. These facets resonated with me deeply. The remaining facets growth areas for me in terms of spirituality are summed up as such: Paradigm spirituality aims to shift the underlying assumptions we have about life and the world, by shifting from temporal to eternal things.
Disciplined spiritually opened my mind up to the many practices we can do that allow God to work in us, balancing out our doing and our depending on Him. Devotional spirituality focuses on enjoying God rather than just learning about Him and his ways very challenging for me as a learner.
Spirit-filled spirituality focuses on walking in step with, depending on, being filled with the Holy Spirit. Warfare spirituality focused on the unseen world of demons, powers and the flesh and the believers struggle with each.
I loved this book and plan on re-reading it at a much confoormed pace. Dec 21, Tom Bazan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Conformed to His Image is a textbook. Boa goes through imxge “facets” of Biblical spirituality.
Book Review: Conformed to His Image : Josie Vance
Many of them–if not all of them–overlap other facets, but each looks at God, scripture, and community in a slightly different way. In the introduction, Boa describes the book as sort of like taking a gem and looking at its different faces in the light.
It is the same gem, but you see it in a different way as you rotate it. That is what Conformed is about. I would try imsge get into some of the things that Conformed to His Image is a textbook. Tk would try to get into some of the things that stood out to me most in this book, but that would take too long.
