In a self–centred, immature world the Church is called to be different. Christians of all ages should be growing in spiritual maturity. John Benton guides us through what the book of Philippians has to say about a maturing church and gives helpful suggestions for how this can be put into practice and shows the joy that can be ours when we live God’s way.

… discipleship means commitment, and commitment involves sacrifice. Paul’s deep love for the church is evident throughout Philippians, and John Benton’s love for the local church shines through this short book. Real joy comes when we are liberated from the endless and futile quest for self–fulfilment, and give ourselves to Christ and to His people

Sharon James, Social Policy Analyst, The Christian Institute

Watch out cruise–control Christians—you will never look at Philippians the same way again! … John Benton deftly draws out six expectations Paul had for the church at Philippi (quality, priority, community, integrity, stability, and generosity). Every member of the Body of Christ would do well to read and reflect upon these truths for maturity in Christ. I profited much from this study.
