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.

John Benton reflects in a thoughtful and warm but also challenging way on how churches and individual Christians have become juvenile like the world rather than mature in Christ. He draws six aspects of maturity from Philippians and lays out practical ways in which we can pursue it. Underlying the whole is a right concern that it is only mature churches that will be able to stand in the coming storms. This foray into Philippians would make an excellent basis for spiritual self–examination by any individual or church and might work particularly well for an eldership to read together as they reflect on their corporate life.

Garry Williams, Director, John Owen Centre, London

… 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
