The most foundational Christian disciplines are helpfully presented in this collection. Not only do these volumes present moral imperatives of how we ought to live, they also powerfully proclaim the Gospel indicatives of what Christ has already done for the believer.

Individual Titles

Disciplines of a Godly Man

  • Author: R. Kent Hughes
  • Publisher: Crossway Books
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 283

Our churches and homes need men willing to follow the path of godliness no matter what the cost. This inspiring, popular book has been speaking to the hearts of men for more than 10 years, and its words are still relevant. Using engaging illustrations, scriptural wisdom, practical suggestions, and study questions, Kent Hughes offers a frank biblical discussion on major areas of Christian manhood: family, godliness, leadership, ministry, and more. This newly revised edition is for every man who wants to know what it means to be a Christian in today's world.

The author illustrates the importance of discipline in spiritual matters in the first chapter:

We will never get anywhere in life without discipline, be it in the arts, business, athletics, or academics. This is doubly so in spiritual matters. In other areas we may be able to claim some innate advantage. An athlete may be born with a strong body, a musician with perfect pitch, or an artist with an eye for perspective. But none of us can claim an innate spiritual advantage. In reality, we are all equally disadvantaged. None of us naturally seeks after God, none is inherently righteous, none instinctively does good (cf. Romans 3:9).

Discovering God in Stories from the Bible

  • Author: Philip Graham Ryken
  • Publisher: Crossway Books
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 202

Through the exploration of 13 Bible stories, Philip Ryken offers readers an opportunity to deepen their love for God by learning more about Him. Each scripture passage demonstrates a particular attribute of God's character. Ryken then presents the doctrinal implications of that trait while using the biblical account to illustrate, explain, and apply it to daily life.

Philip G. Ryken has been serving as the president of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, since 2010. He earned degrees from Wheaton College, Westminster Theological Seminary, and the University of Oxford.

Ryken was the senior minister of Philadelphia’s Tenth Presbyterian Church (where James Boice and Donald Barnhouse served previously) for about 15 years before he became the president of Wheaton College. He is an ordained teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America.

Ryken has authored over 30 books, including several volumes in the Preaching the Word Collection.

Holiness by Grace: Delighting in the Joy That Is Our Strength

  • Author: Bryan Chapell
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 288

God calls us to be holy as He is holy. But how is that possible when we are clearly imperfect? A gifted preacher and teacher illustrates the principles of grace, the practices of faith, and the motives of love to help us understand holy living. Readers will journey through key biblical texts that eliminate performance as a means of establishing or maintaining salvation, but that also emphasize obedience as a grateful response to God’s mercy. When God’s children recognize that His love for them never wavers, then His grace will quicken their steps, strengthen their hearts and delight their souls to carry on.

With the skill of a surgeon and the joy of a child, Bryan Chapell invites us to walk in a garden of grace. Thanks to publisher and author for this fine work.

A Passion for God

  • Author: Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr.
  • Publisher: Crossway Books
  • Publication Date: 1994
  • Pages: 215

With its dynamic paraphrase of Romans and the inspiring thoughts and prayers that accompany each passage, A Passion for God translates the truths of this magnificent epistle into personal worship.

At the heart of this book, where its warmth and energy are generated, is the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught in Paul's letter to the Romans. The author, Raymond C. Ortlund Jr., provides a paraphrase of the book of Romans and expands on its main points by adding prayers and reflections that apply Paul's epistle to Christians today.

Romans has inspired more leaders of the faith throughout history and spawned more revivals within the church than any other book in the Bible. Augustine, Martin Luther, and John Wesley all pointed to a reading of Romans as the beginning of their spiritual renewal. Indeed, of all Paul's letters, this one, sent to the citizens of the most powerful empire of ancient days, is the most compact, sophisticated, and all-encompassing in its summary of the Christian faith. It is the apostle's divinely inspired admonition that Christ held the answers to all of life's crucial questions.

A Passion for God certainly exudes its purpose in stimulating personal worship. It achieves a unique and thoughtful blend of doctrine and devotion which should prove both helpful and encouraging to the diligent believer.

A Passion for Prayer

  • Author: Tom Elliff
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 224

Of all the disciplines of the Christian life, prayer is perhaps the most neglected. This book seeks to help Christians develop the habit of regular, intimate communion with God and deepen their fellowship with Him. Drawing on personal experience and biblical principles, this pastor gives readers a book that’s rich in spiritual insight and practical application. Its powerful text is sure to increase any believer’s prayer confidence, consistency and effectiveness under any kind of circumstance.

Written in Stone: The Ten Commandment and Today's Moral Crisis

  • Author: Philip Graham Ryken
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 240

Philip Graham Ryken shows that the Ten Commandments, as the crystallization of God’s law, are an expression of God’s character and continue to have binding force today. Ryken goes through the commandments one-by-one and relates each to the person and redemptive work of Jesus Christ—the fulfillment of the law.

Philip G. Ryken has been serving as the president of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, since 2010. He earned degrees from Wheaton College, Westminster Theological Seminary, and the University of Oxford.

Ryken was the senior minister of Philadelphia’s Tenth Presbyterian Church (where James Boice and Donald Barnhouse served previously) for about 15 years before he became the president of Wheaton College. He is an ordained teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America.
