Item description for Spiritual Arts: Mastering the Disciplines for a Rich Spiritual Life by Jill Briscoe...

There is a scriptural path toward transformation and growth: the spiritual arts. You could call them qualities or disciplines, but Jill Briscoe shows why they are much more than that. Humility, ministry, generosity, tranquility ? these and others are arts you can practice with patience to experience God more deeply and fully.

Publishers Description
'I like to think of the work of The Holy Spirit in the lives of men and women as art.'Spiritual life is not just a gift; it is a skill we must work to develop. Using Paul's letter to the Philippians as her guide, Bible teacher Jill Briscoe uncovers eight 'spiritual arts' that Christians are called to practice regularly; contentment, intimacy, suffering, simplicity, ministry, tranquility, humility, and harmony.Jill pulls no punches in challenging Christian readers to do their part, Spiritual Arts is a discovery study of practices we need to learn if we are to live life as God intended---full of great joy, deeper intimacy with God, and an exciting impact in the lives of others. With patience, wit, and probing questions, Jill challenges the faithful to a different ethic and a more active, focused way to follow Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Spiritual Arts?

SPIRITUAL ARTS by Jill Briscoe  Nov 21, 2008
Spiritual Arts: Mastering the Disciplines for a Rich Spiritual Life is a book on Christian living by Jill Briscoe. Based on Paul's letter to the Philippians, Briscoe outlines eight "spiritual arts" that Christians should practice and master: ministry, harmony, humility, intimacy, tenacity, maturity, serenity, and receptivity. Briscoe's enthusiasm for evangelism is impressive. Her broader points on Christian living are right on, even if many of her finer points are not, and her chapter on serenity is particularly good.

Briscoe's writing style is not for everyone. She uses a simple, colloquial style that will turn off some readers because they may feel she's talking down to them. Her attempts at humor are extremely corny. Briscoe relates a lot of anecdotes, but often just in passing, without enough details to satisfy or make the stories stick. As a result, Spiritual Arts does not often engage the reader on that deeper level. Her points are sometimes repetitive, and yet the whole work feels scattered.

Spiritual Arts has some decidedly valuable material in it, but it's definitely not for everyone.
