Can a Christian really be perfect this side of Heaven?
Of course not, but God calls us to be perfect. And against the standards of God's perfections, our imperfections are glaring-yet he does not reduce his standards or lower his expectations. What's a believer to do?
In The Perfect Christian nationally acclaimed speaker and teacher Dr. Tony Evans calls believers back to God's demand for perfection. Evans suggests that the answer lies within the problem: "The God who burdens us with the demand also provides the ability, strength, direction, and support we need to grow into greater conformity with His character."
With powerful biblical teaching, heart-grabbing insights, and unforgettable anecdotes, Evans challenges you to "March in a new direction in keeping with the perfect demands of our loving heavenly Father." The end-of-the-chapter "Test your Perfection IQ" questions invite you to consider how close to perfection you are now and how you can grow from there.
