THE TRANSFORMATION

 AND

THE ANOINTING

 

 RECONCILING GOD'S TWO GREAT WORKS OF

SALVATION IN THE EARTH TODAY

  

PREVIEW

This work provides an exhaustive study of the internal and external aspects of the work of redemption through the ministries of the cross and of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Christian believer. It was originally written in 1993-94 and taught as a for-credit Bible College level course at the Grace Bible College of Household of Faith church, Amherst, New Hampshire.

For the .pdf files of the 16 hour course, including all the text, charts, sample scheduling, quizzes, assignments  and the recorded classes in .wma format, click the icon below. (My apologies in advance for the poor sound quality of the audio files.) This course is especially recommended for overseas pastors as a means to teach new converts the full scope of the Christian life expericnce between our conversion and our final translation to glory, while providing the history of the restoration of these ministries in the western church after the year 1500.
