Editorial Reviews

Review

Discipline is a subject about which the Scriptures say much--but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume.... If there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline. --John MacArthur, pastor and best-selling author. To open this book and find someone taking seriously the biblical call of`agonizing to enter the kingdom' and... boxing and sweating like a champion to get victory over sin is the most refreshing thing I could have set my eyes on. --John Piper, pastor and popular author --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

"Discipline is a subject about which the Scriptures say much-but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume. . . . If there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline."
John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; President, The Master's College and Seminary

By Mark Near on October 14, 2000
Format: Hardcover
One of the frustrations in my life is that I have been a christian for 1/2 of my 43 years and you would think that I would be farther along on my journey to become a disciple. Mr. Hughes, the author of this book, shares his thoughts on becoming a man of God, and some areas that we need to focus in on. In chapters like, "The Discipline of Marriage", he points out ways that men stumble and encourages us to avoid the pitfalls that have tripped so many up. This book takes a hard line on sin, but doesn't preach. It encourages us to be strong and courageous and gives practical steps for keeping the victory over sin. It is an excellent book to use in a men's discussion group. You can read a chapter each week, read the scriptures which are referenced and discuss the end of chapter questions. I recommend this to every man, 15 and up.

Forget Wild at Heart! Buy this book instead. It calls for radical discipline as the means of pursuing godliness in every area of life. With a good blend of biblical teaching, true-life stories, and practical advice, Hughes leads men to embrace the spiritual sweat necessary in following Christ. I like this book so much that I'm currently leading the men in our church through this study. It's one of (if not the) best books for men on the Christian market today.

It is easy to see why Kent Hughes' book has been such a best seller. The author has compiled in these pages an invaluable collection of helpful, spiritual advice for men in the 21st century. I am not aware of a more comprehensive volume that covers so many topics within one cover.
Hughes identifies the following life areas: relationships, soul, character, ministry, and grace. He then provides specific disciplines that each cultivate a more dynamic Christian lifestyle. His advice is Biblically sound, culturally relevant, and easy to understand.
This book will be very helpful to any man who desires to grow deeper in his devotion to Jesus Christ. While it is only an introductory work, it provides a solid foundation on which to begin a more structured approach to discipleship. I recommend it highly.

I initially read this book about three years ago and thought it was a great book. I am now going through the book again but this time with a group of guys in a study. The study questions are great to help you apply the reading. R. Kent Hughes holds no punches and bases all of his information on Scripture. If you desire to be a Godly man, I HIGHLY recommend reading this book and completing the study questions.

this book was chosen by a friend and I was not very supportive of the decision, but upon beginning to read it, I realize that it's a really excellent resource. I strongly recommend the book, it will take you back to what's important.

This book exposes the need of a balanced life in the Christian experience. Accepting and drawing close to the Lord and Maker is such a valued relationship in this troubled and violent world. This book leads one through the daily existence God would like to show us and protect us. Very good book after the Bible.

By A Customer on February 13, 2001
Format: Hardcover
R. Kent Hughes provides men with some good solid Christian fundamentals to live by. I thought the reading was relatively easy and provided many points of discussion with my small group.
However - some of the negatives about the book revolve around the terrible examples used by Hughes as "fact". One example would be the lesson on "tongues" and his assumption that a mid-western reporter caused a revolution in China... This is hardly the case - but written to be as fact in his book. Furthermore - Hughes tends to utilize statistics as a measure to re-inforce his points. Unfortunately - much of his data is now quite dated and seems rather silly to utilize in reinforcing his points. In this day and age when politicians are quoting the latest poll - it seems rather bitter-sweet to find a Christian writer using polls to complicate his message.
Overall - the book is good basic info - but there are other books that will provide more punch for the paper.

WOW! Where do I start with this book? I have a men's group that I attend weekly and we're going through Disciplines of a Godly Man. We just concluded spending 3 weeks on just a single chapter!

Be ready to be challenged in your walk with Christ, your witness before others, your relationship with your spouse, your work ethics, the need for open and genuine male friendships, your relationship with your church, and the words that come out of your mouth on a daily basis.

No, 'Good-Works' won't make you right with God. Only Christ and what he did on the cross can accomplish that, but once we have entered into that relationship, God EXPECTS us to reflect Christ in all that we do, say, and think, and that those actions come from the INSIDE, reflective of a CHANGED HEART and MIND! This book will challenge, convict, and motivate you to be what we have been called to be in Christ. I highly recommend this book, and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this for the purposes of a men's study/accountability group.
