Publisher's Description

First published in 1692, this is one of the classic works of Christian spirituality. It is a deep and rich biblical study of sanctification—how Christians grow in holiness and become more like Jesus.

In a day when Christians are very prone to pursue self-help methods to grow in obedience to Christ, Walter Marshall lays out the biblical way of growth: obedience comes as Christians live by grace, in union with Christ, by faith. Growth comes, as Paul says in Galatians 2:20, through “Christ living in me.” The message of this book is so important for Christians today, it is essential that it be rewritten in contemporary English.

About the Author

Walter Marshall (1628–80) served as a fellow at New College, Oxford, and Winchester College, and ministered at Fawley, Hursley, and Gosport, England.
