Personal spiritual growth is a crucial topic today, with many books written from a how-to, self-help perspective. The Dynamics of Spiritual Formation brings together the principles of personal spiritual disciplines with the church's corporate life and demonstrates how normal church activities such as worship, prayer, and fellowship hold potential for spiritual transformation in individual lives.

Written for pastors and church leaders, this book takes an in-depth look at the tools of soul-shaping, with the goal that every church member may grow into the fullness of Christ.

Drawing from Christian classics and experience, Mel Lawrenz helps shepherds touch the innermost lives of their flock, thus fulfilling Jesus' command to make disciples.
