"The Good and Beautiful Community is very readable, relatable, and practical. Recommend it to pastors, adult Sunday school teachers, small-group leaders, fans of Dallas Willard and Richard Foster, and customers interested in spiritual formation and disciplines." (Daniel Johnson, CBA Retailers & Resources, September 2010)
"The Apprentice Series is the best practice I have seen in Christian spiritual formation." (Dallas Willard, author of The Divine Conspiracy)
"Jim Smith is the most articulate, accurate and helpful writer of spiritual formation of my generation. I give this series my highest recommendation." (Todd Hunter, author of Giving Church Another Chance)
"The Apprentice Series is a treasure. Dr. Smith has thought long and hard about the process of human transformation into the likeness of Jesus. I urge you to buy these books immediately! Read them and apply them. Then live them out in the context of a loving community. You will not regret doing so." (Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline and coauthor of Longing for God)

each chapter ends with practical and applicable "walk-it-outs" (encouraging us to move past hearing into DOING!)

I've enjoyed his take on false narratives. It has really made me think about my beliefs and why they are what they are.
