"From his long-time pastoral heart and skills, Trevor invites us to be shepherded and strengthened with practices that immerse us in God and lead us into Christlikeness." (Jan Johnson, spiritual director and author of Invitation to the Jesus Life and Spiritual Disciplines Companion)
"I consider Trevor Hudson to be a wonderful friend. He must be because even after my wife started using one of his books (instead of mine) for a college course she was teaching on spiritual formation, I still like him. And she's certain to begin using Discovering Our Spiritual Identity, because I can hardly imagine a better resource for Christ-following; like the author, it is practical and profound." (Gary W. Moon, M.Div., Ph.D., vice president, Richmont Graduate University, and author of Apprenticeship with Jesus)
"I met Trevor Hudson one sunny day in his home country, South Africa. The moment I met him I knew him to be a profoundly spiritual person, and our lengthy conversation that day confirmed my initial impression. Trevor Hudson is one of South Africa's contemporary spiritual masters. The book in your hands contains the wisdom of a gentle pastor guiding each of us into a deeper walk with a God who heals. If I had one person I'd choose to be a pastor to my children, it would be Trevor Hudson." (Scot McKnight, author of Jesus Creed and blogger at www.patheos.com)
"To those who have already discovered him, Trevor Hudson is a much loved and trusted spiritual guide who is known for his practical books on the Christian spiritual journey. Organized around sixteen signposts toward a renewed spirituality that is centered in Jesus, Discovering Our Spiritual Identity presents a series of what he calls 'holy experiments'―time-tested practices that hold the potential of transforming hearts and minds, attention and awareness, willing and doing. Don't just read this book; take the time to live it, to make space in your life for these experiments to gain a foothold. It will leave you forever changed." (Dr. David G. Benner, author of Opening to God and The Gift of Being Yourself)

The book is sectioned into sixteen sessions consisting of an objective idea (aka Holy Experiment), a reading to introduce the idea-experiment, a written assignment or two, and practical assignments with discussion points. While the book (workbook) is certainly capable for individuals, I think it would be best served working through it with a partner or in a group of 3-5 people.
As I mentioned, I have participated in workbooks teaching spiritual disciplines and I have taught them in groups as well. I am thankful for this resource as it has provided me with another means of expressing with "utter simplicity and clarity the profound truths of Jesus Christ" (Dallas Willard).
Trevor Hudson concludes the workbook and exercises with pastoral gentleness, but somber warning and reminder; "Spiritual disciplines are not a way of earning salvation.Read more ›
