Product Description

Let's face it - we live in a complex world. Technology improves daily, and with it, the pace increases. Surrounded by driving forces, it is no small wonder that our spiritual lives take a hit. But if the weight of the world is hindering your walk with the Lord, maybe now it's the time to step back and evaluate. Life on earth was less hectic in Jesus' time. He faced incredible challenges and suffered agonizing trials, but there was simplicity in His relationship with His Father that we can emulate. And in that simplicity, we can realize our greatest fulfillment as believers. If your Bible study seems as tedious as filing your tax return and your prayer life as wearisome as trying to understand your phone bill, stop. Take a deep breath. Let author Donald Whitney show you how rewarding the simple Christian life can be.

“No one questions whether life is complicated today. It’s just a fact that the more “time-saving” devices we have, the more we are expected to do with our time. Enter “Simplify Your Spiritual Life” by Donald S. Whitney. He sympathizes with fellow Christians who experience a spiritual life that is cluttered, has many diversions, and seems overwhelming. His goal for readers of this book is to simplify their spiritual lives, not by doing less, but Whitney says, “we simplify to remove distractions from our pursuit of Christ.”
“In that effort, Whitney lays out the book by disciplines of a Christian, and offers suggestions on simplifying that area. For example, in the section on Prayer he distinguishes repetitive prayer from persistent prayer – “…talking to God is too great a privilege to settle for ‘vain repetitions’ when the Bible invites you to ‘pour out your heart before Him’ (Psalm 62:8).” Other topics include meditation, truth, journaling, time, and the heart. Each topic has small, 2-page chapters that present a specific thought about it, which makes for easy reading as well as absorbing the concepts bit-by-bit.
“Whitney has written other books about living out the spiritual life including “Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life,” “Ten Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health,” and “How Can I Be Sure I’m a Christian?” What struck me most was the solid doctrines he promotes, insisting that as Christians we should judge any idea or principle using the Word as our authority. His advice is sound, not fashionable, and his encouragement is palpable throughout the volume. I would recommend this to a new believer (he spends much of the first part instructing what the gospel is and isn’t), and to a mature Christian who wants guidance in the daily living of our faith.” – Stacy Oliver, Christian Book Previews.com

    This book is an excellent read for those who do not have much time for reading! The chapters are short and to the point with wonderful suggestions on how to be successful in cultivating spiritual disciplines in a Christian's life! I especially recommend it for mothers of young children who only have a very limited amount of time each day for devotions! No one should be without this book in their personal library if they want to grow spiritually!! I give it the highest rating it can receive!! I buy copies and give it away!! Thank you Mr. Whitney for writing a resource for Christians at every level of maturity!!
