5 Stars Out Of 5
Excellent treatise on Christian disciplines
May 17, 2011
This is the audio version of this Christian spiritual disciplines classic. Reading and audio quality is excellent. I transferred the MP3 files to my MP3 player and they worked perfectly the first time. The disciplines themselves are challenging. Some were reassuring. Some were disciplines I did not want to hear. I put the later in the category of "hard teaching". The author takes great pains to document each concepts with ample Scriptural references, not taken out of contense. So I can't complain he was making this up. I have read comments elsewhere that this book contains "new age" practices. I saw no evidence of this. On the contrary, as noted above, everything presented is well documented in scripture. I can see many applications of the concepts presented in my personal life. I am excited to try them out. This book is one of my top 5 favorites. I rank it with The Celtic Way of Evangelism (George Hunter), Out of the Salt Shaker (Rebecca Pippert) , The Prodigal God, and Counterfeit Gods (Tim Keller). All are good practical guidance on how to live a Christian life and share it with others, not just talk a good story. Well worth buying.
