9780989002004: Pursuing a Divine Life: A Study of the New Nature (The Pursuing with Passion Series) (Volume 1)

The new nature, the most astonishing doctrine in Scripture, is also the least understood. This book explains what the new nature is, how it was created, how the new nature is received, how it is released, how its release can be sustained, and how the new nature can transform all those functions of the soul (our mind, will, and emotions) that have long been influenced by an alien force, what Scripture calls the flesh.

David C. Needham, author of the Christian classic, Birthright, offered this comment:

“A major contribution ... a remarkable book ... I am exceptionally impressed with all the resources you found. A great job of research ... You have provided God’s people with an excellent tool for coming to grips with the marvelous truth of regeneration—the new creation.”

This book is for those who want to learn:

How to access their new nature so they can cease chug-chug-chugging along on two cylinders instead of eight

How to overcome the sin-consciousness that shuts down faith and keeps grace out of reach

How to prevent Satan’s identity theft schemes, often successful because he’ll hack the inadequate protection believers rely on

How to improve relationships, since the true identity of each believer is the new nature, attractive when accessed and harmonious when activated

How the new nature makes us instantly and totally lovable to God

Formatted for small group usage through p.325. The last 180 pages (appendices, indices, endnotes) offer optional/more advanced reading while maintaining an accessible writing style.

About the Author:

J. W. Phillips earned masters and doctorate degrees from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and for many years served as a senior pastor. Early in his adult life, Phillips appeared to be on a trajectory toward performing. He worked as a radio announcer for many years, played the leads in musicals and dramas, and directed dramas on both the high school and college levels. However, the Lord cross-grained natural abilities and led Pastor Phillips instead into extensive reading of devotional literature. The Pursuing with Passion Series is enriched by insights from hundreds of godly writers of different nations, generations and denominations.
