Do you define your faith by the frequency of your church attendance? Hull calls you to rethink what it means to be a Christian. Showing that conforming to Christ's image can be a lifelong journey, he helps you cultivate a spiritual heart by being with God, reading his Word, hearing his voice, obeying him, and more. 

The key to the spiritual life is cultivation of a spiritual heart. This is what makes the difference between hoping to change someday and actually changing our thoughts and behaviors now. Bill Hull says the great teachers of the past (such as William Law and John Wesley) and the best guides in spiritual formation today (such as Dallas Willard and Richard Foster) all agree on the central importance of the intent of the heart.

Such a heart is cultivated, writes Hull, in the simplicity of a life fixed on the words and ways of Jesus. In Christlike, the author helps us grow intentionally in uncomplicated obedience to Jesus so that our minds and hearts are in alignment with each other. But this is not a privatized spirituality. Instead, writes Hull, this simplicity is the key to effectiveness in the larger mission of changing the world for Christ.

Bill Hull says that to make a difference in our world, we need to become different ourselves. The final court of whether or not a person is becoming Christlike is not attendance at a church training program but how we act in daily life. This book aims to change outward actions by inner transformation through uncomplicated obedience.

The key to the spiritual life is the cultivation of a spiritual heart. This is what makes the difference between hoping to change someday and actually changing our thoughts and behaviors today. Bill helps you grow intentionally in uncomplicated obedience to the words and ways of Jesus so that our minds and hearts are in alignment with each other and our actions forward Christ's kingdom.
