In the ancient disciple-rabbi relationship, the disciple would follow the rabbi so closely that he would be covered in the dust kicked up from his rabbi's feet. Thousands of years later, though we walk on roads of pavement and not dust, we are still called to be disciples—to follow our Rabbi, Jesus Christ, so closely that we are covered with his life, changed, and made new.
Into His Likeness provides an approachable but in-depth exploration of how to live as a disciple and experience the transformation Jesus wants to work in our lives. We might desire to live more like Christ, but we know we fall short. 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.
"Too many people have a cold, impersonal faith: Jesus is a concept we read about in a book, and the Church is an institution that gives us lists of 'rights' and 'wrongs'. In Into His Likeness, Dr. Edward Sri shatters this sterile view, and leads us on a breathtaking journey into a personal relationship with Jesus."
— Jennifer Fulwiler, SiriusXM radio host and author of One Beautiful Dream
"I've heard it said that "God loves us right where we're at. But He also loves us too much to keep us there." In his down-to-earth, relatable style, Dr. Sri does just that with this book. Into His Likeness indeed meets us all right where we're at in life while providing a way forward. It's a path of powerful but practical spiritual steps to not only help us follow in the footsteps of Christ and His Church but to become more and more like Him in our everyday lives; something all of us need to continually strive for."
— Teresa Tomeo, syndicated Catholic talk show host of Catholic Connection & The Catholic View for Women
"Into His Likeness is a masterful work, embodying the fruit of decades of study and life as a disciple of Christ. Sri offers a roadmap to aid the disciple of Jesus through their lifelong transformation in Christ. Theologically rich and eminently practical, this book is well worth the read and provides the basis for hours of fruitful discussion."
