Product Description

Best-selling author and beloved Bible teacher Charles Swindoll says, "The secret lies in our returning to the basic disciplines of Christ. Religion won't cut it! We live in a spiritual hothouse where we talk religious talk, send out religious letters, write religious pamphlets, and do religious Bible studies. It's so easy to become religious instead of godly." The Bible says, we must "discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness." You really want to be like Christ? Here are eight essential disciplines to get you there: Intimacy: Deepening Our Lives. Simplicity: Uncluttering Our Minds. Silence and Solitude: Slowing Our Pace. Surrender: Releasing Our Grip. Prayer: Calling Out. Humility: Bowing Low. Self-Control: Holding Back. Sacrifice: Giving Over. In the process of developing these eight essential disciplines in your life, your relationship with Christ will flourish, and you will become more godly. They go hand in hand.

Publisher's Description

MennoFolk offers the abundance of Mennonite life: jokes, origin tales, trickster tales, and the Reggie Jackson urban legend, along with analysis of folk traditions in the context of Mennonite and Amish history, culture,and beliefs. Ervin Beck studies Mennonite and Amish paintings on glass andfamily records and considers the Mennonite relief sales as folk festivals.This signature book is a treasure for folklorists, but is also a gift for anyone who cares about the Mennonite experience and is concerned with questions of conduct, community, and conviction.
