Books on the Christian life abound. Some focus on spirituality, others on practices, and others still on doctrines such as justification or forgiveness. Few offer an account of the Christian life that portrays redeemed Christian existence within the multifaceted and beautiful whole of the Christian confession. This book attempts to fill that gap. It provides a constructive, specifically theological interpretation of the Christian life according to the nature of God's grace. This means coordinating the Triune God, his reconciling, justifying, redemptive, restorative, and otherwise transformative action with those practices of the Christian life emerging from it. The doctrine of the Christian life developed here unifies doctrine and life, confession and practice within the divine economy of grace. Drawing together some of the most important theologians in the church today, Sanctified by Grace achieves what no other theological text offers - a shared work of dogmatic theology oriented to redeemed Christian existence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A book for all Christians who want renewal in the light of modern thinking and highly relevant for Readers who require theological depth. * The Reader *
[A] first rate collection of essays ... This is a marvellous volume ... Eilers and Strobel have gathered together an excellent collection for the seminarian, pastor or theologian looking to have their teaching, preaching and theological practice grounded in thick dogmatics, while properly oriented towards the Christian life. * Theology *
A valuable collection of essays by a distinguished group of authors, this volume explores the significance for the Christian life of several key doctrines. It is to be highly commended for overcoming the artificial boundaries between dogmatic, spiritual and practical theology. * David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh, UK *
Scores of recent books analyze Christian practices, teeming with proposals on the shape of the Christian life. But most pay scant attention to the central character of the Christian drama: the gracious, disruptive, triune God made known in Jesus Christ. Sanctified by Grace corrects this deficiency, bringing together a first-rate collection of essays that are united in their commitment to rediscover the Christian life in light of the God of the gospel. This book is a nourishing doctrinal feast for the church! * J. Todd Billings, Western Theological Seminary, USA *
What a terrific book! Too often dogmatic considerations are removed from discussions of the Christian life; consequently, both our theology and lives are impoverished. Here, we have sustained and wise reflections that bring these together in wonderful ways, all possible because the cast of contributors is truly excellent. Here is a feast many will enjoy for years to come. * Kelly M. Kapic, Covenant College, USA *
