Endorsements

‘Sinclair Ferguson is the purest kind of theologian. He draws doctrine from the text of Scripture. This, of course, gives confidence to the reader that the doctrines he explains are the ones that come correctly from the mouth of God. Nothing is more important for the believer than getting the doctrines related to sanctification and spiritual maturity right. This book is a treasury of those truths – I highly recommend it.’ — JOHN MACARTHUR

‘As Christians, we have a great need to be continually growing into spiritual maturity. But how do we realize such a worthy goal? In large measure, the answer is found in this new book by Sinclair Ferguson, Maturity. This master theologian and nurturing pastor gives us a comprehensive overview of this vitally important subject. Profound in its strategic grasp, yet easily read and digested, this is a rare book that every believer—whether new to the faith or a seasoned saint—should live with and live out.’ — STEVE LAWSON

Book Description

What are the most important lessons the New Testament has to teach us about being a Christian?

Sinclair Ferguson shows that a deep-seated concern of the writers of the New Testament was to see Christians grow to spiritual maturity—and if that was the concern of the first believers, then it should be our concern too.

In clear and logical chapters that are rooted in the reality of the Christian life, the author, who has had long experience in pastoral ministry and seminary teaching, seeks to show what Christian maturity is, and how it is to be obtained.

It was the apostle Paul’s desire to present those to whom he ministered ‘mature in Christ’—for such a maturity would lead to stable, servant-hearted Christians, and healthy, fruit-bearing churches.

All those who desire to live useful, mature, and consistent Christian lives will gain much wisdom from reading and reflecting upon the contents of this book.
