It includes many excerpts from his bi-monthly journal, "A Witness and a Testimony" and also includes short summaries of 28 books he published throughout his ministry. The ministry of T. Austin-Sparks portrays a profound picture of Christ and of God's eternal purpose to head up all things in Christ. On the side of personal experience, his ministry opens the door to a deep inward work of the cross of Christ, and inward knowing of the Spirit, and an inward working of God's divine life. He portrays this experience in the context of a local assembly and emphasizes that the church, not merely individual believers, is the unique instrument through which God will gain His eternal goal.

This is a well-researched and thorough biography of one of the relatively unknown Christian spiritual giants of recent times.
I details his association and working with other spiritual leaders of the time, the early to mid-late 20th century.
This work fills in many of the aspects of Sparks life, including his frequent health problems.

If you have found this believer's writings and recorded Bible teaching events (most transcribed) and have realized their exceptional value re serious and deeper Christian living and want to know more about the man, check out this book.

There is also at the end a section containing the author's summaries of 24 of Sparks books and articles.

Also, you can download free many of his books and articles at this website: [...]
4 stars instead of 5 because I would have appreciated more analyses and conclusions re Sparks' contribution to spiritual literature. Clearly, TA Sparks was a gifted Bible teacher that any serious Christian should read thoroughly.

Recommended.

This Biography of T. Austin-Sparks by Rex Beck is an excellent portrayal of a wonderful movement of the work of God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ in the life, times and ministry of God's servant and faithful son, Theodore Austin-Sparks. As you read this Biography, the testimony you can sense by the Holy Spirit is the evidence of the great relationship our dear brother T. Austin-Sparks had with his Eternal Lord and Master.
As revealed in this Biography, this relationship could only ever be entered into by a complete and utter submission to God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Like brother Sparks, the writer (Rex Beck) has also seen the need for this Supreme and Eternal Vision of God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and this helps manifest this Biography as a living manuscript giving all honor for the Glory of God.
Whilst having read many Biographies of T. Austin-Sparks by various other Authors, it is felt that this is the best. It is believed that this Biography has been very deeply enhanced by the writer's spiritual understanding of the many and various times of travail that T. Austin-Sparks and his faithful co-laborers went through as their lives were shaped by Vision of Christ and His Cross. As Rex Beck aptly portrays concerning his title "Shaped by Vision", Mr. Sparks and his true friends fully realized that the Church of the Living God is only "Shaped by the Vision of their Lord and Master", as Christ went to the Cross and paid the Redemption price for all. It was clear that T. Austin-Sparks saw that God never intended His children to remain babes living on milk but to grow up into Christ, Who was his Head and the Head of His Church universal according to (v.v.) Hebrews 5:11 to Hebrews 6:3.
The Biography points out that Mr. Sparks wrote of, "Admonishing every man and teaching every man.... that we may present every man perfect (complete) in Christ” (Colossians 1:28). “We believe that all the sovereign activities of the Holy Spirit are directed to and dictated by this end and object.”
Whilst this reader has certainly never met Mr. T. Austin-Sparks face to face or known him personally in any other way, this Biography really brings forth a living portrayal of his life and heartfelt longing to present all believers complete in Christ. I thoroughly recommend this Biography of T. Austin-Sparks by Rex Beck, "Shaped by Vision".

For Christians not content to just accept Christ and then let "local churches" or denominations dictate what not to do, where not to go and who not to see Mr. Sparks offers us insights and wisdom that bring a stature of clarity and simplicity not heard of since the epistles of the apostle Paul were written. Of course, I am not suggesting that the 66 books which comprise our Holy Bible and are "inspired by God ..." need to be added to but for readers and seekers who are dsillusioned by the offerings of current Christian bookstores dive and stretch into Shaped by Vision by Rex Bell as an introduction to T. Austin Sparks.

"It only takes a Sparks to get a fire going" to paraphrase the old musical refrain "Pass It On"! Shaped By Vision

I have read a little over 80% and have found it very enlightening.

I had no idea that his father had pulled him out of school in his home town and had sent him off to Edinburgh, to get him away from "that Christian influence."

His biographer has highlighted what his books reveal, i.e., that did not waste time or ink on scolding those with whom he didn't agree, in fact for the most part, he did did not defend against his attackers.

What characterizes his ministry (most of which found its way into his many books) was determination to stay positive and to uphold the Lord Jesus in His rightful position as Lord of the church and Lord of the universe.

Reading this book is good for an overall general picture of brother Sparks, however, we cannot know by merely reading it the depths of suffering this brother met with, from so many angles, during his life. His writings are the fruit of a man who lived in the heavenlies. Read this book, then read everything else you can find of his writings.
