Becoming the Likeness of Jesus
"Becoming the Likeness of Jesus" isn't just a good idea, or Bill Day's idea—it's God's idea. It was His plan all along, that we would be conformed to the image/likeness of HIs Son. In this book, Bill shares his journey of becoming who he was meant to be, and will guide you on your journey. Buckle up for a good ride/read!

A powerful story of one man's journey from religion to Christian Spirituality. Bill tells of the many false roads he traveled in his search. They are similar to the roads we all travel. I too fought for years to discover intimacy with the Spirit. Finally, God showed me it was as easy as quieting myself down, fixing my eyes on Jesus, and turning to the flow of the Holy Spirit within me. Wow! Home as last, after a 10 year search. I trust this book will help you find your way home, into the loving arms of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Dr. Mark Virkler, author of 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice
The Gospel is a multi-faceted diamond that reflects the Light of the world. One facet that rivets the attention of Christian believers is Jesus' sacrificial death, through which we are forgiven and redeemed: "Jesus paid it all," we say.
However, there is another facet of this diamond, a facet of transformation. We can also say "Jesus took it all." This facet radiates a luminescent clarity that Jesus took upon Himself, onto the cross, our counterfeit "human nature." He took all the self-centered, prideful, rebellious dispositions of our hearts...as well as the wounds, afflictions, and abuses heaped upon us by the self-slants of others. In exchange, He gives us His life, i.e., true human nature.
Becoming the Likeness of Jesus is a story about this forgotten facet of transformation, and is a guide for shifting from knowing about the facet into its actualization in daily life. It is "the rest of the story" in which you may find depths of discovery for your own journey towards healing, wholeness, and truth.
Being a Christian does not protect you from having a troubled heart, nor does it protect your friends and loved ones. This book addresses the turbulence that can come into our souls at any time and what to do about it. As a Christian psychotherapist/minister, I personally have been through several storms in my life and have treated many troubled souls. Healing Troubled Hearts comes to you as the result of those experiences and shows specifically how Christian inner healing can bring calm to the storms, like Jesus quieting the waters of the Sea of Galilee.
For those who are therapists, counselors, or pastors, I invite you to read this book to bring depth into your work with patients who are living in dark places. For those who have loved ones with troubled hearts, or you yourself have an anxious heart, I invite you to learn about the spiritual roots of the problems and what to do about them. This is a book that can bring healing and restoration.
In John 14:27, Jesus says, "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." I pray that this book will be a means of fulfilling His promise.
Healing Troubled Hearts
In Healing Troubled Hearts, Bill Day has made an invaluable contribution to the literature regarding how we can engage with God in order to heal our brokenness....I heartily recommend this work to anyone who still has questions about whether or not Christians need inner healing, and whether or not this ministry is a work of God.
David Takle, author of The Truth About Lies And Lies About Truth
This book opens a window for the soul to breathe the clean air of discovery, daring to believe that we can discover Truth in the midst of wounds, disappointments, disjointedness and especially in times when we feel the most lost. Bill's testimony is a pledge to us that we are never really lost but, rather, just waiting to be found. Healing Troubled Hearts lights the path for the heart to find its way back home.
