Genuine and wholesome spirituality is the goal of all Christian living. It sounds so simple, doesn't it? Perhaps the principle may be, but living by the principle is another matter altogether. In Balancing the Christian Life, Charles Ryrie reminds you that "the Bible must be the guide and test for all our experiences in the spiritual life ...and if any experience fails to pass that test, it must be discarded." He warns that "an unbalanced application of the doctrines related to spirituality will result in an unbalanced Christian life."
Ryrie examines numerous key issues of spirituality, including:
- The old and the new life
- Using your gifts
- Routine faithfulness
- Wiles of the Devil
For more than 40 years, Balancing the Christian Life has been changing lives worldwide. Take time to read this classic study--and allow it to change yours.

Andy AndersonLynden, WashingtonAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Best Christian Living Book!October 31, 2010Andy AndersonLynden, WashingtonAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are many books on how to live the Christian Life, and I have found this to be my favorite. The first part of the book deals with biblical concepts of man and spirituality. The second part addresses our sanctification and personal responsibilities. The third part covers answers to problems that we experience in our Christian Walk. A Bonus is the study guide that can be used by yourself or a group. This is a book that you will refer to, time and time again, as it deals with our Sanctification in a very practical way. I highly recommend this book for a new believer, and long time believers as well. Everyone can learn from this incredible resource.

Don Pritchett5 Stars Out Of 5September 26, 2001Don PritchettSpiritual Disciplines for Christian LivingA biblically based look at spirituality, which the author defines as the goal of all Christian living. The book looks at some basic biblical concepts, personal responsiblities, and practical issues affecting Christians today. The study guide in the 25th Anniversary edition really complements the text by providing an opportunity to evaluate your own spiritual life topic by topic. It even allows room for those who might disagree with some of Dr. Ryrie's conclusions to develop a scriptural rationale for their positions. Also recommended: Knowing God, J.I. Packer So Great Salvation, C. Ryrie True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer
