A book that will make a difference in your personal life Apr 20, 2007
Richard Taylor's little book exposes one of the greatest needs of our generation. I have found it a helpful guide over the years to return me to the only path by which there can be any true accomplishment. I remember the first time I read The Disciplined Life. I noticed that the final chapter was titled "How to Become a Disciplined Person." I turned to that chapter first only to discover that the author was wise to people like me. On the first page of the chapter I read "Some of you will spot the title of this chapter while scanning the contents and, recognizing that becoming a disciplined person is the goal, will suppose that to read only this chapter will be sufficient. Such an attempt may be symptomatic of your need of discipline. The undisciplined person is forever seeking ways to avoid the arduous grind of solid work and to arrive quickly at his goal by short cuts." Touché! I had been found out. As have others, I have had difficult lessons to learn in the area of personal discipline. Taylor's book has been a tremendous help in the learning process.
Much needed Message for Today's Recreation minded Christian Aug 17, 2003
Are you having problems focusing and gettings things accomplished? Stop making excuses and get this book!
As the author himself states:"Discipline is what moderns need the most and want the least." I would also say that this is a great book for high school graduates, Young Pastors and anyone needing help living a disciplined life.
It is Basically in two Parts. My favorite chapter is found in the first part of the book: "Discipline and Holiness" which the author(very persuasively)shows are not synonomous.
Part 2 of the book: "The Path to discipline in Christian living" offers excellent teaching and practical advice on how to achieve a life of discipline.
