Left to ourselves, we are pretty tough souls with rock-stiffened minds that we'll never reform into anything resembling the new creation God designed us to be. But God has provided us the means to soften hard hearts. They are found both in his Word and through tried and true practices of the church: spiritual disciplines. God has given us meaningful, life-changing practices so our hearts and minds can yield, soften, and be miraculously shaped by his Spirit's touch. Only then can we finally experience life the way it is meant to be.
Master teacher Keith Drury has taken the best from his two previous classics (Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People and With Unveiled Faces), and powerfully concentrated and updated it into this new and accessible book, offering the wisdom of ancient disciplines in simple, practical terms that today's Christians can understand and apply.
Supported by modern research, Drury leads readers through the heart-softening effects of ancient practices. But then he takes believers beyond disciplines, holding up a mirror to reflect just what our souls should look like when God does the shaping.
Learn to simply and consistently practice the disciplines God has given you, and learn to recognize the new shape God will make of your soul.
Keith Drury is a professor of religion at Indiana Wesleyan University.
