Into His Likeness: Be Transformed as a Disciple of Christ

Edward Sri, a well-known Catholic author, provides an approachable but in-depth exploration of what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Into His Likeness provides how to live as a disciple and experience the transformation Jesus wants to work in our lives. This book simply helps us follow those initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, so that we may more intentionally encounter Jesus anew each day and be more disposed to his grace changing us ever more into his likeness. How would you answer the question… “Are you a true follower of Jesus or just a fan?” This book will help you become the true follower!

NOTE FROM FR. SCHULTZ: “Bishop Lou upon his arrival in our diocese made a point to travel around to all areas of the diocese and personally visit and seek feedback from his priests and their parishioners. He has taken this feedback to prayer and discerned how God is calling him to lead his flock. To help share this vision, he purchased and sent two different books to all his priests that give insights into this vision. We are doing a parish book study of each book, beginning with “Into His Likeness” to allow God to speak to each of you as he has spoken to our bishop. I strongly encourage you to participate and if you are unable to, please purchase the books and read them.”
