An excellent addition to the book
on February 24, 2006
Although there is no substitute for wrestling with the issues Pastor Whitney powerfully presents in the book "Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life", the study guide is a very beneficial help to the reader to internalize and put into practice these important disciplines. The questions range from orthodoxy (the why of the disciplines) to orthopraxy (the practice of the disciplines).
Presently I am leading a group through the study guide at work to help the believers pursue holiness through the disciplines. Those with little Biblical knowledge or study habits have struggled some becasue they have never done anything like this. If you are a new believer, or someone guiding a new believer through this guide I would suggest two things. First, take your time. We have tried to go through a chapter a week and people are getting lost. Secondly, supplement this text with a good "how to study the Bible" guide. The nuts and bolts of Bible study are assumed, many do not know how to correctly study the texts of Scripture.
On the whole, however, I heartily recommend this book and study guide to the benefit of your soul.
