An Approach to Christian Spirituality
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life” (John 8:12, NLT).
Following Jesus: An Approach to Christian Spirituality provides a basis for understanding how the Lordship of Christ is the essential criterion for determining how Christianity functions as a relational experience with God. With that relational experience, for the believer in Christ, being the product of supernatural experience with the Holy Spirit.
The book functions as an organizing tool to be used for a conscientious inquiry into how a Christian worldview operates in four relational categories of experience. With these relational categories act as a basis for understanding how our choices affect our lives, and our futures, both now and in life, and eternally, and how it is that God loves us and will give our lives the meaning and purpose that we all long for.
“Blake Ferriss writes this book from a personal standpoint of being a bondservant of Jesus Christ. Early in his Christian experience, Blake realized that being subservient to the Lordship of Christ was necessary in order to be a disciple of Jesus. This book has as its cornerstone, bond slavery. It should be noted that this text is not for the faint of heart. If the reader is willing to be a bondservant of Christ the book will produce hope. The hope is produced by using the text as a manual for discipleship.”
