"Biblical and reformed spirituality was never more needed than in these post-modern times and Michael Haykins exposition of it in these pages is both timely and judicious. With the skill of John Owen, his treatment is intentionally Trinitarian: God glorifying, Christ-centred and Spirit focused. With the added skill of a first-rate historian, Haykin mines the pages of history bringing breathtaking illustrative material to help us understand the biblical parameters of godliness. A timely book; but readers should beware: reading these pages may cost you dearly for it will require that you part with your dearest sins and in order that you may discover in Christ fullness, contentment and joy." -Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, RTS, Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS, Editorial Director, reformation21.org.
"I warmly commend this timely, easy-to-read, informative and challenging book." -Dr. Philip H. Eveson, Principal, London Theological Seminary, London, UK
"In this great little book, Michael Haykin introduces the reader to the central elements of a properly biblical spirituality. Of special note are his attention to the necessity of understanding Trinitarian dimensions of the Christian life, and to the value of drawing on the great classics of spirituality of the past in order to live for Christ in the contemporary world. A delightful book to read and to give to friends." -Dr. Carl R. Trueman, Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary Philadelphia, PA
"So many books on 'spirituality' on the shelves of Christian and secular bookstores represent little more than new age labyrinth-walking or pseudo-spiritual pandering. Michael Haykin, one of the pre-eminent evangelical scholars in this and several other areas, brings a fresh, ancient approach to biblical spirituality. He restores to spirituality the Holy Spirit, and points us to Jesus Christ. Those who long for a closer walk with Jesus---and that should be all of us---will love this book." -Dr. Russell D. Moore, Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice President for Academic Administration, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY
"A biblical, full-orbed view of true spirituality, founded in the Word and the Spirit, in contrast to the false spirituality that deludes so many today." -Robert Strivens, Principal-Designate, London Theological Seminary, London, UK
