Transformed by the Spirit is a culmination of seven and a half years of formal study in Spiritual Formation & Theology between my undergraduate and graduate work at Multnomah University and Seminary School. The main issue that Transformed by the Spirit addresses is the need for us, as Christians, to develop our relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, through the various spiritual disciplines and through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are in Union with Christ at conversion, yet we will not be fully perfected in Christ until He returns; therefore, we must always work towards Christlikeness in an effort to become fully mature Christians who comprise a fully mature church (Ephesians 4:1-16).
In Transformed by the Spirit, Craig Prather takes our hands and our hearts and leads us on a spiritual journey filled with historical examples of fellow travelers, rules for the road, obstacles to avoid, and travel tips to stay connected to the One who knows exactly what speed we need to go in our journey of becoming like Jesus. Instead of arriving at our destination tired, weary and exhausted, we will lock arms with others and rejoice that we, by the Spirit, have finished the journey well.
