  • Having previously read and enjoyed Whitney s Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life , I decided to read through this one I expected a fair amount of repetition, and while there certainly was a fair deal of a common ground, I was pleased to find it quite a bit that is fresh and new as well.Whitney shares great, practical advice The advice is delivered in wonderfully short two page chapter segments that can be easily digested in a very short reading There area lot of good tidbits here Whitne [...]


  • This book is divided into nice little bite sized chapters Each chapter gives a practical gospel motivated way to simplify your spiritual life I have enjoyed all of Donald Whitney s books, and this one is no exception There are high and low points, which can be expected when an author is tackling such a broad topic However, the high points in this book are awesome Recommended.



  • This is a great follow up to Whiney s book on the spiritual disciplines It not only helps us to simplify our spiritual life but also to prioritise it as well I Don t know about others, but I find myself feeling overwhelmed by the idea of practicing all the disciplines This book shows how to avoid that It also helps in simplifying other areas of life Prioritising and simplifying are essential if we want to accomplish what we were created for This book is a great tool in helping us achieve that If [...]


  • Excellent adaptation of Whitney s best known book, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life.This breaks down the ideas of that book into short, easy to read chunks Each chapter is no than 2 pages and shouldn t take longer than 5 minutes to read Great format to put the topics into application immediately.


  • Simply organized in 200 brief sometimes a page or less chapters, I learned many ways to approach spiritual disciplines for our times With technology adding to life s stress, this book was timely in reminding me to focus on what really matters, and to avoid being overwhelmed in life to where I have no time for family, friends or let alone, God Now if I can only apply what I learned


  • This is great book on Spiritual Disciplines The title may sound light, but the content is not The author takes many of the disciplines he discusses in his comprehensive book Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life and puts them into bite sized, one or two page sections that can be read daily, or even weekly For me, the reading on praying scripture was worth the price of the book.


  • I went through this book as a daily devotion, taking one chapter per day Much of the content is pretty obvious stuff, some good reminders, etc Nothing earth shattering I found the journaling section really helpful, though, because I m often stuck on what to put in my spiritual journal The author provides some good prompts.


  • I didn t expect to like this, but it is fabulous Full of insight and practical ways to grow your relationship with God I was kind of turned off by the title especially the simplify part However his version of simplify is getting rid of needles stuff and adding prayer, bible reading and redirecting your focus.Awesome Stuff


  • One of the better books on spirituality It is written in easily digested but powerful portions He has taken the spiritual disciplines and connected the dots on how to not be overwhelmed but to simplify them in your life Great book.


  • Sound, simple, devotional, often very practical This book is pretty unique in the range of things it s speaks to It offers much help toward living life on purpose.
