Item Description...
Overview
Many Christians acknowledge that they love Jesus but are disillusioned about their spiritual condition. They come to Christ to drink from the well of his new life, yet find that their thirst remains. Why has the Christian life not met their expectations for spiritual growth and how can they satisfy this craving for their Christian walk to have a deeper impact? Do you desperately yearn for a deeper relationship with God? Clive Calver pastor, preacher and longtime church statesman can relate. As a young preacher and fairly new Christian, he felt deeply frustrated in his efforts to experience spiritual transformation. Then it dawned on him that Jesus' death on the cross achieved two things how to die and how to live. Crucified love was God's gift to us; resurrected life with Christ was his purpose for us. For far too long we have been presented with a version of the Christian faith that majors on what we get rather than on what we give. The cross has been portrayed as the place where Jesus died for us and where we receive from him but rarely as the location of our joint crucifixion with him. The uncomfortable truth is that Jesus calls us to share his cross. If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me (Matthew 1624). Fortunately, we don't have to be some kind of a super Christian to allow Gods power to work through us. Calver shows how a number of ordinary believers have discovered the paradoxical fulfillment of the crucified life as they die to self and serve God and other people. By dying to live, you too can know the joy of resurrection.

Pretty deep stuff  Jun 30, 2009
I found the premise of this book to be wonderful, while the actual reading came a bit slowly for me. There are some great points to consider. While occasionally a bit preachy-clearly at these times however, the author's passion for communication is evident
 
It's Not Just Me!  May 23, 2009
When I became a Christian, I felt changed. I felt truly alive for the first time in ages, euphoric, and just giddy about what lay ahead for me. This lasted a while, then I guess you'd say the flame died. I wondered if something was wrong with me, with my faith. I kept thinking "Is this all there is?' Why was I not floating around, all pumped up, and being a shining example of God's love like the others around me? What was wrong with me?


I recently read Dying to Live by Clive Calver and realized I am not the only person who has ever felt this way. There is nothing wrong with me! This book does an awesome job of explaining how the old us has to die, so we can live for Christ, just like he was crucified for us. It is a thought provoking read. It was like it turned on a switch in my head and really made me understand so much. If you've ever felt like I did, this book will truly bless you. I am so glad I read it. It has returned those wonderful feelings and made me understand so much more about how to walk with Christ. I highly recommend this one!
