Reviews - What do customers think about Simplify Your Spiritual Life: Spiritual Disciplines for the OverwhelmedForeword by Richard Swenson, M.D.?
Excellent book ... bite-sized bits of spiritual wisdom! Oct 21, 2004
I'm always looking for ways to simplify my life ... "Simplicity" could almost be called my favorite hobby. But for some reason, even with all the simplifying I've done in my personal life, finances, chores, job-related work, etc., I really hadn't given much thought to simplifying my Christian spiritual disciplines. Whitney's book was a wake-up call. Full of clear, concise, practical Bible-based wisdom, this book has found a place on my shelf of "favorites."
This book is written in short, easy-to-read, stand-alone chapters. When I have a few minutes when I want to read but don't have time to delve into a longer, involved chapter, I'll grab this book and read one of the two-page sections and feel like I have enough to think on and ponder for several days.
Highly recommended for people serious about their Christian growth.
Full of Godly wisdom! Aug 18, 2004
This book is full of wise and practical insights from Don Whitney. One would do well to obtain all Whitney has penned - he is the real deal! His standard work is Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life.
