|Title:||Spiritual Birthline: Understanding How We Experience the New Birth|
Stephen E. Smallman
|Number of pages:||176|
"'Born again' is a common expression that few people understand. In a compelling way Stephen Smallman helps us understand that it is the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit. This book will prove profitable to all who read it."
"Stephen Smallman's stories of how God brings people to new life in Christ are exhilarating-and his refreshing insights into the process of conversion are also immensely encouraging to anyone who wants to share his or her faith."
"Any campus ministry passionate about students' lives being transformed will want this book in the hands of their front-line campus staff. Stephen Smallman has renewed my own biblical understanding of God's prior work in the hearts of 'not yet believers' while inspiring me to embrace my role as a spiritual midwife in the lives of college students."
"Spiritual Birthline transforms that most dangerous journey-one's spiritual pilgrimage-into safe, known territory. By applying a pastor's heart and a willing ear to hundreds of testimonies heard over decades of ministry, Stephen Smallman has distilled the work of God in the soul: 'When God calls, we come.' In place of our too-often clichéd born-again narratives, he guides us to a richer understanding that is wonderfully profound and reassuringly practical."
