Fortify your commitment to Christ by examining ten "authentic" disciplines God uses to forge a fire-tested faith. What if the spiritual disciplines that bring us closer to God are not the ones we control? Bestselling author Gary Thomas reveals the rich benefits that derive from embracing the harder truths of Scripture. With penetrating insight from Scripture and the Christian classics, along with colorful and engaging stories, this eye-opening look at what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus will encourage you, bolster your faith, and help you rise above shallow attachments to fix your heart on things of eternal worth.
Gary Thomas is writer-in-residence (and serves on the teaching team) at Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas and author of 18 books that have sold over a million copies worldwide and have been translated into a dozen languages. He and his wife Lisa have been married for 30 years.
Chris White5 Stars Out Of 5June 13, 2008Chris WhiteA great read for any deep thinking Christian... provides depth and scriptures as reasons to challenge the life of a believer deeper in their walk. My single quirk was that I don't believe I fully agreed with his view of tragedies that occur in life, instead of portraying the love of God during those times he suggests using it to grow. Sometimes the only way to get through difficulty is to have an unshakable trust in the love and character of God. Looking at the incident as God-sent or placed for our betterment, could instead of growing a person make them indignant towards God. Perhaps Gary would agree with some of the above but it came across shaky in his book, but the angle of the book was toward a person who is in need of God's humility and not God's restoration.Beyond the above it was a great book and I learned a LOT from it.
