accomplished musician to be able to sit down in front of a new piece of music and play it through
without a hitch, to make it seem easy, as if it required no effort. Yet, the freedom to play with
such skill comes only after years of disciplined practice.
In the same way, the freedom to grow in godliness, to naturally express Christ's character through your own personality, is in large part dependant on a deliberate cultivation of the spiritual disciplines.

Drawn from the rich heritage left us by the early church fathers, the Puritan writers, and Jesus Christ Himself, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will guide will guide you through a carefully selected array of disciplines.
