Called to Be Saints: An Invitation to Christian Maturity

2015 Christianity Today Award of Merit (Spirituality)2014 Best Book of Spirituality―Academic, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore Evangelicals are known for their emphasis on conversion. But what about life after conversion and beyond justification? Desperately needed is a comprehensive theology of the Christian life from beginning to end, along with the means of formation and transformation. In Called to Be Saints, Gordon Smith draws on a distinguished lifetime of reflecting on these themes to offer us a theologically rich account of our participation in the life of Christ. Both profound and practical, this book is a trinitarian theology of holiness that encompasses both justification and sanctification, both union with Christ and communion with God. Smith unfolds how and why Christians are called to become wise people, do good work, love others and enjoy rightly ordered affections. If holiness is the ongoing journey of becoming mature in Christ, then there is no better guide than Smith. Christians in every walk of life will find this a rich resource for learning what it means to "grow up in every way . . . into Christ" (Ephesians 4:15).

Called to be Saints. John Hugo, The Catholic Worker, and a Theology of Radical Christianity (Marquette Studies in Theology)

Called to be Saints offers a theological and historical analysis of the role that Fr. John Hugo and the retreat play in understanding Dorothy Day and the radical Christianity she put forth - a notion of the Christian life that remains relevant today. Included are Dorothy Days original notebooks, featured for the first time. ~Pope Francis surprised many when he included Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton as examples of great Americans he wished to extol in his address to Congress in September 2015. While perhaps better known than Merton, adding Day to the pantheon of great figures in American history was certainly significant. Indeed, since her death in 1980, there has been a steadily growing recognition of the importance of Dorothy Day along with a steadily growing body of scholarship on her. Absent from all this study and promotion of Day and her causes has been much attention on Fr. John Hugo and the retreat that exerted such a profound effect on her in the 1940s. Called to be Saints offers a theological and historical analysis of the role that Fr. John Hugo and the retreat play in understanding Dorothy Day.

Called to be Saints

Called to be Saints is a handbook for believers in the Twenty-first Century. Its range is from the earliest prophetic words of Enoch, through Daniel's prophesies to Revelation's establishment of the saints. Because the Last Days will be a time of persecution, it is expedient to know what God's word says about His Holiness Ones. The next two paragraphs are excerpts from the back cover of the volume.Every effort from hell is directed against the saints of God. That is the truest evaluation of modern times that can be drawn. Governments, religious citadels, educational enterprises and societies have declared open war on the saints, and God is still their only resource. Biblical prophecy concludes that the intensity of opposition to the saints will increase in breadth and severity, so it is necessary to define terms and review the class.This being the case, it behooves everyone who names the Name to have a clear picture of who the saints are in order to "make their own calling and election sure." This "calling" is found in Romans 1 and I Corinthians 1. There the phrase which is repeated in both books written by Paul is the phrase, "Called to be Saints." Paul used this phrase in relation to Jew and Gentile, for he knew there is no other calling higher, no greater designation than to b...

How to Be Holy: First Steps in Becoming a Saint

"Life, in the end, has only one tragedy: not to have been a saint."– Léon BloyThe ever-popular and prolific Peter Kreeft says that the most important question he has written about is how one becomes holy; or to put it another way, how one becomes a saint. This question is central to all the great religions, Kreeft demonstrates, for striving toward holiness, moving toward perfect love, is the whole purpose of life.Kreeft admits that he is only a beginner on the climb to holiness, and it is to novices like him that he has written this engaging and encouraging book. Using the insights and experiences of saints and great spiritual writers throughout history, Kreeft shows what holiness is and how it can be achieved. He especially draws upon the spiritual classic Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, S.J. The core of Caussade's timeless gem is that God reveals himself to all of us through the daily events of our lives. The surest way toward spiritual growth, therefore, is by perceiving and accepting the merciful will of God in every situation.Kreeft stresses the simplicity of his approach to holiness, which focuses mainly on the virtue of love. Sanctity is love, he asserts, and only that can give us what we all long for—deep and lasting joy.
