PRLog - Dec. 14, 2012 - SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Transformed Life by John R. Carter draws attention to the fact that personal transformation requires radical change. It has been said that the only thing you can count on in this world is that nothing stays the same. You can change your address, your job, your wardrobe, your friends—you can even change your name—BUT your life will not transform until you change the way you think. Becoming a Christian ignites the process of transformation. Your relationship with God, eternal destination, and true self become new. Yet even with all these wonderful changes, we are left in a world, remain in a body, and are stuck with a mind that is pretty much the same.
The Transformed Life by Pastor Carter will teach you that God has designed a plan of genuine transformation for every person, one that goes far beyond the initial moment of salvation. In this 10-week study, designed to be used either in group settings or for personal exploration, Pastor Carter explores topics such as the nature of God, the transformed mind, and transforming our world. Whether you realize it or not, you have the capacity and power to influence the direction of your life through a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. You can change. Here’s how.
The Transformed Life is foreworded by Pastor A. R. Bernard, pastor of Christian Cultural Center in New York City, NY.

“One of the greatest challenges people face in today’s culture is how to connect. In a distracted, disrupted, and rapidly transforming world, how do we meaningfully engage with others, ourselves, and God? That’s why The Transformed Life by John Carter is so important. It’s a road map for experiencing what the Bible teaches about personal transformation. We’ll never transform our culture if our lives are not changed first, and this is an owner’s manual for biblical change. The Transformed Life will help you understand God’s priorities for living and have a powerful impact on your future.”

“John Carter has taken a fresh look at the foundations of the believer’s life and developed a tool for guiding a person through true biblical transformation. This book is a great tool for self-development or for use in a class format to guide a person into the transformed life that Christ offers. No life can rise above the potential of its foundation. This book enables a person to lay a foundation that can support an outstanding life.”
Mike Cavanaugh, President of Elim Bible Institute, and Vice-President of Elim Fellowship
“In his book, The Transformed Life, John Carter offers so much. This book is a study guide on doctrine, an aid to help you know how to recognize a good church, and a map to help you discover, identify, and develop your gifts with insights on how to utilize them effectively—

“It was a great joy reviewing Pastor John Carter’s work, The Transformed Life. Three words came to mind as I reviewed this work: intelligent, spiritual, and practical. As John walks readers through biblical truths and insights, he does so in a very intelligent way. He helps readers think through the Scriptures. Second, the work is spiritual. His work honors the integrity of Scripture and the dignity of God. He acknowledges the supernatural aspects of Christian life and God’s work in our lives. Third, this work is practical. While John covers theological issues very well, he always brings the reader to a solid, practical application in one’s life. I believe pastors will be very eager to put this great tool into the hands of believers to help educate and establish them in the things of God. I believe it will find wide usage among churches that value the authority of Scripture and the development of believers.”
