Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life
We aren’t meant to wait for holiness―we’re meant to pursue it. God commands Christians to actively “be holy,” but what does that look like in daily life? Rather than overwhelming legalism or loose boundaries, Don Whitney encourages us to find a practical middle ground through biblical habits.
Don Whitney’s convicting insight on spiritual disciplines will challenge you to grow in new ways as a Christian. Now updated and revised, this edition offers practical suggestions for cultivating spiritual growth, diving into practices such as:
- Absorbing Scripture
- Silence and solitude
- And more
Regardless of where you are in your Christian walk, this anniversary edition provides refreshing and profound encouragement for your spirit.
“Don Whitney’s spiritual feet are blessedly cemented in the wisdom of the Bible. This is as beneficial as it is solid. If you want to be really real with your God, this book provides practical help.” –J. I. Packer, author and theologian
