The relation of the two concepts, Christian growth and the Word of God, will be one of the chief concerns of this study; but almost equal to it in importance will be the proper understanding of a number of the factors involved: (a) God's revelation of His holy will rewarding Christian growth; (b) Man's nature before and after conversion with special reference to his relation to God; (c) The possibility of Christian growth, indicating God's approach to man in His Word; (d) The responsibility for Christian growth as indicated in the Word; (e) The ideal Christian life, as described in the Word; (f) Man's need of help in patterning his life after the Word; (g) The help offered to men by the servant of the Word of God; (h) Attainable goals in Christian growth as these are presented in the Word; (i) The proper use of the Word of' God toward the attainment of Christian growth; (j) The Scriptural guidelines for the minister of the Word as he applies himself to the task of fostering Christian growth in his members.
