‘”Help Heavenward” – that is the strength of the Christian life journey. Chapter two of this book is on progressive sanctification – about the only thing I’ve ever read on it that is well-balanced and makes sense….That alone is worth the price of this book. Winslow is very warmly experiential in all that he writes, and you’ll just find, whatever he does…meets the needs of the soul.’ — JOEL R. BEEKE
Admission to heaven is promised and guaranteed to all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ but they all need help to get there.
Sin, suffering, death and Satan obstruct the believer’s progress in faith and obedience. But God’s grace, his Son’s merit and the Spirit’s might all co-operate to direct, uphold, encourage and restore the believer who persevered on the holy pilgrimage.
Help Heavenward, a practical handbook on sanctification with heaven ever in view, is devotional writing at its finest. I know of no better book to give to Christians as they struggle in this sinful world to live in obedience to their Saviour. Use this book to become acquainted with those sacred truths of Scripture that the Spirit uses to mould our thoughts, words, and actions for Christ-like living.
