It’s not uncommon for an accomplished musician to be able to sit down in front of a new piece of music and play it through without a hitch—to make it seem easy, as if it required no effort. Yet the “freedom” to play with such skill comes only after years of disciplined practice.

In the same way, the freedom to grow in godliness—to naturally express Christ’s character through your own personality—is in large part dependent on a deliberate cultivation of the spiritual disciplines. Far from being legalistic, restrictive, or binding, as they are often perceived, the spiritual disciplines are actually the means to unparalleled spiritual liberty.

If you’d like to embark on a lifelong quest for godliness, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will help you on your way. Drawn from a rich heritage left us by the early Church Fathers, the Puritan writers, and Jesus Christ himself, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will guide you through a carefully selected array of disciplines, including:

  • Scripture reading
  • Prayer
  • Worship
  • Scripture meditation
  • Evangelism
  • Serving
  • Stewardship of time and money
  • Scripture application
  • Fasting
  • Silence and solitude
  • Journaling
  • Learning

By illustrating why the disciplines are important, showing how each one will help you grow in godliness, and offering practical suggestions for cultivating them on a long-term basis, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will provide you a refreshing opportunity to embrace life’s greatest pursuit—the pursuit of holiness—through a lifelong delight in the disciplines.

In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life are tagged, appear on mouseover, and link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “prayer” or “meditation.”

    Logos, we would like to ask that the new version of this be offered here as it has been significantly updated and revised and is available for less than half digitally compared to the offering of the older version. We should not be paying twice as much for the older version of the book. It looks to me like I actually ended up purchasing it for the $18+ price tag AFTER it had already had a new updated version out for a couple years.
