"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
"This is a book for men who are eager to learn how to be more effective. It comes from the pen of one who has learned to serve as he has led and who is able to provide the reader with many practical applications of eternal truth."
—C. William Pollard, Chairman Emeritus, The ServiceMaster Company
"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, Founder, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary
"An outstanding volume for men and women alike! . . . Over 250 pages devoted to the practical outworking of discipline on subjects like purity, marriage, prayer, the tongue, the mind, our work, leadership, ministry, and many, many more. I guarantee: Digest this book and you will bid the blahs farewell."
—Charles Swindoll, Pastor and Best-Selling Author

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.
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.
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.
