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

Inspired by the acts of sacrifice and discipline exemplified by the D-Day generation as well as the current generation of young American soldiers, many Christians today are looking for an obedient, disciplined approach to faith. This user-friendly study guides readers toward a greater understanding of eight spiritual disciplines of the Christian faith-prayer, humility, self-control, sacrifice, submission, solitude, silence, and hope. Each chapter defines and discusses the concept, then provides interactive assignments and suggestions for further study, as well as content summaries and outlines that aid in retention. Activities can be revisited again and again for a new outlook or just for a periodic refresher. Perfect for individual or group or family study, So, You Want to be Like Christ? is just right for anyone desiring to delve deeper into the fundamental elements of Christian life, and essential for all who hunger for authentic faith experiences. It is destined to be a classic text on the practice of Christianity.

    Chuck Swindoll is a wonderful Christian author and anyone reading his books will be treated to not only foundational Christian instruction, but will be shown the works of other great sources. I was introduced to Tozer, Jim Elliot and Brother Lawrence by Dr. Swindoll. This book is a very useful guide for Disciplers, especially if working with young believers. I am currently using this book for that purpose and it is opening new areas of growth and maturity for them, as it did for me. Highly recommended.
