Short Description:

Everyone who longs to know Christ deeply will benefit from spiritual discipline. Now expanded, this handbook is full of practical, accessible guidance on making the most of such practices as fasting, solitude, contemplative prayer, and lectio divina - an ancient method of devotional Bible reading.

Long Description:

Maybe you long for a more intimate prayer life or deeper insight from God's Word but just don't know how to get there. Or maybe you want to learn about new spiritual disciplines like visio divina, unplugging or attentiveness.

In Spiritual Disciplines Handbook Adele Calhoun gives us directions for our continuing journey toward intimacy with Christ. While the word discipline may make us want to run and hide, the author shows how desires and discipline work together to lead us to the transformation we're longing for - the transformation only Christ can bring. Instead of just giving information about spiritual disciplines, this handbook is full of practical, accessible guidance that helps you actually practice them.

With over 80,000 copies in print, this well-loved catalog of seventy-five disciplines has been revised throughout and expanded to include thirteen new disciplines along with a new preface by the author.

Mothers, fathers, plumbers, nurses, students - we're all on a journey. And spiritual disciplines are for all of us who desire to know Christ deeply and be like him. Here is direction for our desire, leading us to the ultimate destination: more of Christ himself.

Reviews of previous edition:

"I have long profited from Adele Ahlberg Calhoun's gifts in the field of spiritual development, and I am delighted that she has compiled her experience with spiritual disciplines into book form. I highly recommend it and I look forward to using it as a resource at our church."- Dr. Timothy Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, NYC.

"A treasure of tried and true spiritual practices written well enough for everyone from the novice to the master to use." - Publishers Weekly September 26, 2005.

"A practical guide to a wide range of disciplines from the classical practices of prayer, worship, meditation, and scripture study to more contemporary disciplines such as mentoring, journaling, unplugging, and accountability partners. A readable and accessible introduction to the practice of the spiritual disciplines." - Elizabeth R. Pearson, The Christian Librarian, vol. 52, 2009.
