Although the Christian life begins with a single act of faith and repentance, that birthplace was never meant to become a nest where we remain undisturbed for the rest of our days. We were "born again" to a new life, intended to grow into adulthood. We should be developing and exercising our spiritual wings over a lifetime, concluding with a glorious flight to heaven. Many believers, however, stagnate in spiritual immaturity. Getting, Doing, Being defines three common stages of our growth and urges us to enter into this discipleship training, experiencing the delight of learning just who we are in Christ.
"My favorite story to teach and preach is that of the Prodigal Son. More than any other text in thirty-six years of pastoring, this young man's story has captivated my attention. And just when I thought I knew all there was to know about this pericopE of Scripture, Sam Mason hands me a copy of Getting, Doing, Being.
"Insightful, challenging and inspiring, all who read will love this newest book from Sam Mason, a great writer, a true Christian gentleman, a gift from God to His church"
