This is one of the best books I have ever read on HOW to live the Christian life. The subjects covered include prayer, Bible reading, scripture memory, fasting, service, giving, worship, and more. The book gives very practical instruction on the why and how of the disciplines, while keeping the focus on growing in Christ.

Time to Update

I'd like to hear the updated edition with a younger narrator. I had to read this book for a class. First, the updated edition is quite a bit better as technology and information have changed in the last 20 years. Also Whitney's style is incredibly formal, but the updated edition is slightly less so. Toward the end of my semester though, it became apparent I needed a way to get through this book faster than I was. So I got the audiobook for the old version and listened to the last three hours. The narrator is okay. His pronunciation of "Kenya" is incredibly annoying. And his voice in general is not that pleasant. But overall, it's a good book.

It's message is also good, but definitely overwhelming by the end of it. He acknowledges this in his final chapter. It doesn't feel possible to incorporate all of these disciplines in my life at present. But I know that I am by nature not a disciplined person. I intend to make some small changes and document my progress. It's an interesting challenge and hopefully, I'll better in a year than I am right now.
