Product Description

How do you measure your spiritual growth? By how much time you spend in prayer? How often you read the Bible? How many times you share your testimony? Rather than becoming frustrated trying to keep track of your Christian "to-do" list, Mark Buchanan believes that your spirit grows depending on what season you're in. Using the four seasons--winter, spring, summer and fall as living parables, Buchanan explores what each has to offer with biblical insight and pastoral experience. Discover what season your heart is in, and find the rhythm in your spiritual walk.

Publisher's Description

“Abide in me,” Jesus tells us, “and you will bear much fruit.” Yet too often we forget that fruit needs different seasons in order to grow. We measure our spiritual maturity by how much we do rather than how we are responding to our current spiritual season. In Spiritual Rhythm, Mark Buchanan replaces our spirituality of busyness with a spirituality of abiding. Sometimes we are busy, sometimes still, sometimes pushing with all we’ve got, sometimes waiting. This model of the spiritual life measures and produces growth by asking: Are we living in rhythm with the season we are in? With the lyrical writing for which he is known, Mark invites us to respond to every season of the heart, whether we are flourishing and fruitful, stark and dismal, or cool and windy. In comparing spiritual rhythms to the seasons of the year, he shows us what to expect from each season and how embracing the seasons causes our spiritual lives to prosper. As he draws on the powerful words of Scripture, Mark explores what activities are suitable or necessary in each season---and what activities are useless or even harmful in that season. Throughout the book, Mark weaves together stories of young and old, men and women, families, couples, and individuals who are in or have been through a particular season of the heart. As Mark writes, “I pray that this book meets you in whatever season you’re in, and prepares you for whatever seasons await. I pray that it helps you find your voice, your stride, your rhythm, in season or out. Mostly, I pray that you, with or without my help, find Christ wherever you are. And that, even more, you discover that wherever you are, he’s found you.”

Publisher's Description

Too often Christians measure spiritual maturity by how much they do. In Spiritual Rhythm, Mark Buchanan replaces a spirituality of busyness, with a spirituality of abiding. Sometimes a season calls for busyness, sometimes stillness, sometimes pressing on, sometimes waiting.

With the beautiful lyricism and biblical insight he is known for, Buchanan invites readers to respond to every season of the heart, whether that season is flourishing and fruitful, stark and dismal or cool and windy. Buchanan explores what are suitable or necessary activities in each season--and what activities are useless and even harmful in that season. Throughout the book, he weaves together stories of young and old, men and women, families, couples, and individuals who are in or have been through a particular season of the heart.

Writing for every Christian who longs to bear fruit that will last, Mark Buchanan shows reader what to expect, embrace, and learn through the necessary rhythms of the spiritual life.
