Product Description

You may have walked in faith throughout your life, been a committed churchgoer, and practiced the five basic spiritual disciplines of study, prayer, worship, fellowship, and service. And yet, somehow you feel something is missing. You want to feel closer to God.

A woman of faith and a popular speaker at Christian events, Jane Winebrenner now invites you to break through the barriers that can separate you from God's presence in your life. Exploring seventeen often forgotten disciples, including humility, meditation, and celebration, Jan introduces you to practices that are neither hard work nor items for your "to do" list. They simply ask you to rely on His love. Includes study guide.

Publisher's Description

Scripture provides insight into additional disciplines--17 in all--and each is essential for strong spiritual development. This book introduces these disciplines and provides biblical proofs as well as present-day illustrations to show how God uses them to increase our capacity for enjoying Him.

Publisher's Weekly

Evangelical Christians have long been interested in spiritual disciplines, especially daily Bible study and prayer. In 1978, Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline brought other practices such as meditation, fasting and confession to evangelical attention, and since then publishers have released a spate of spiritual discipline books by evangelical Protestants who like to read Catholic authors. Winebrenner continues this tradition, referencing Catholic writers such as Thomas Merton, Fran ois F nelon and Henri Nouwen along with Protestants including Eugene Peterson, Oswald Chambers and Dallas Willard. Director of the Dallas Christian Writers Guild, she has an easy-to-follow workmanlike approach, laced with homey illustrations about horses and football and children leaving for college. To the frequently taught disciplines of study, prayer, worship, fellowship and service, she adds a dozen others, including humility, chastity, secrecy, silence and celebration. All disciplines, she repeatedly emphasizes, have one goal: a passionate romance with God. On nearly every page she writes rhapsodically about God's personal love, connecting it with whatever discipline she is presenting. For example, in meditation, "my mind becomes filled with awareness of God's tender love for me, and I am quickly at peace, quickly settled and almost instantly relieved of any desire to think of anything but God." As a basic introduction to various Christian disciplines as well as an inspirational paean to God's love, this book will appeal to evangelical women (and likely men) who might be put off by the scholarly approach of some of its predecessors. A study guide is included. (Jan.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
