    Sculptor Spirit

    Models of Sanctification from Spirit Christology

    by Leopoldo A. Sánchez M.
    Foreword by Oscar García-Johnson

    Like the work of an artist who molds a lump of clay, the Spirit's sanctifying work lies in shaping people into the image of Christ. Avoiding either a "Spirit-only" or a "Spirit-void" theology, Leopoldo Sánchez carefully crafts a Spirit Christology, which considers the role of God's Spirit in the life and mission of Jesus and leads to five distinct models of sanctification that can help Christians discern how the Spirit is at work in our lives.

    Conformed to the Image of His Son

    Reconsidering Paul's Theology of Glory in Romans

    by Haley Goranson Jacob
    Foreword by N. T. Wright

    What does Paul mean when in Romans 8:29 he speaks of being "conformed to the image of his Son"? Is it a moral or spiritual or sanctifying conformity to Christ, or to his suffering, or does it point to an eschatological transformation into radiant glory? Haley Goranson Jacob points out that the key lies in the meaning of "glory" in Paul's biblical-theological perspective and in how he uses the language of glory in Romans.
