Publisher's Weekly

Christians today are busier than ever before, doing the "spiritual" work they feel called to out of devotion for God. But are these earnest followers of Christ actually living their faith in a manner that is pleasing to Christ? Whitney (Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life; How Can I Be Sure I'm a Christian?) effectively challenges this "busy hands, empty heart" epidemic. Whitney poses intensely introspective questions to aid Christians as they gauge their own level of spiritual health. Do they have a driving thirst for God, as well as behavior dictated by God's holy standards? How loving to others and sensitive to the Holy Spirit are they? Do they experience genuine grief over personal sin and a willingness to forgive repeat offenders? Whitney also discusses the spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting, meditating upon Scripture, taking communion and fellowship with others of like faith, showing readers how to transform these often automatic enterprises into faith-building activities. He advises Christians to spend more energy enjoying God and developing a Christlike nature, rather than accomplishing ever-accelerating goals. He notes that seekers must be acutely aware that following Christ is a lifetime commitment and that they should resist the temptation to seek "spiritual" shortcuts to intimacy with God. This timely text is full of gentle admonitions to unearth deeply entrenched habits and dig for the treasure found only in a carefully honed relationship with God.

    When I requested a book to review, NavPress also threw in this book so I'm not really required to review it but am more than happy to do so. I wasn't familiar with this author but I love this book. It has 10 questions that help you to stop and think about your walk with God. Even though this is a fairly short book, you will want to work through it slowly in order to give yourself time to make sure you are seeking God's grace to grow in the various areas. It's the type of book that I would go back and read again, and be convicted again. I would definitely recommend it to others!

    My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

    I read this book and the Spiritual Disciplines by Whitney when I was a new Christian. These two books, especially disciplines, are wonderful at all levels. They do a wonderful job of explaining the disciplines in a biblical way and laying out practical ways to put them into practice in your own life.

    Perfect book for a small group Bible study.

    This book is fantastic! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because it could have been longer. I'm planning on purchasing copies for our deacons and other key leaders. I have never read a book that focuses on the deep longings of the growing Christian. A very encouraging read!

    Just when you feel that you have "arrived", this book puts things back into prospective. A real must have for those who truly desire to be more like the Master.
