Trade Paperback - 0891120327 [HALL, LARRY] NO LONGER I
The central theme of No Longer I challenges the reader to address Jesus' admonition to his disciples to take up their crosses and follow hun. The book correlates this with Paul's discussion of being "co-crucified" with Christ and, as the title indicates, having Christ's own nature within. Hall extends the biblical metaphor beyond the individual to consider what the "self-denied/ Christ-realized" church looks like, both in its internal functions and its outreach to the lost. He draws on his experiences as a counselor, minister, husband, father, and friend to illustrate and bring into vivid relief the disciple's call to creative self-abandonment and victorious surrender.
