Introduction

Expansive is about one thing: Becoming. Some refer to it as growth, while others call it discipleship. Some use bigger words like transformation or sanctification. Whatever word you prefer this resource confesses that the Church has a (trans)formation problem. And very few Christians (especially us, pastors) wants to name that. The Church is rife with ills, inconsistencies, and hypocrisies. This has always been true—just read one of Paul’s letters in the New Testament. Each letter is a cocktail of encouragements for ways they are doing well, and also corrections for ways they are, um, not doing well. Exploring seven essential directions, Expansive aims to offer practical ways that followers of Jesus can move beyond simply believing things about God, and into becoming more like God. Author, AJ Sherrill, believes that for Christianity to once again be credible, the world is waiting for Christians to become more like the Messiah they profess. With stories, Scriptures, cultural insight, and simple practices, this resource helps the Christian reclaim what humans lost in the garden--Christlikeness--for the glory of God and the good of all people.
