- Koorong

Nathan Foster has lived with the spiritual disciplines all his life, but has had to find his own unique path. As he sought - sometimes rebelliously - to develop habits that would enable him to live more like Jesus, he encountered problems both personal and universal. Gradually he discovered creative new ways to practice disciplines such as fasting, meditation and simplicity, to live as Jesus lived. With a foreword from Nathan's father Richard, who provides a fresh introduction to each of the disciplines, The Making of an Ordinary Saint invites us to be formed into the likeness of Christ's character.

This is a book that gives voice to the importance of spiritual formation for a new generation.
5 stars By Darryl Eyb, Aug 08 2016
They say you should never judge a book by its cover.  I totally ignored this advice because I love the cover of this book but this is far from the best part of the book.  I quickly found this out as I became engrossed in the pages that followed. Spiritual disciplines are at the heart of this book. The Making of an Ordinary Saint is not a guide to spiritual formation but the story of spiritual formation.  It is written in the first person and told by incorporating narrative which I found immediately engaging.  What ultimately sets this book apart is its reality.  The story is not told or set in idyllic circumstances but in the face of difficulties and doubts. There is a danger when a book is written in the first person that it may become overly self-indulgent but this has been avoided by walking the fine line between story, information and advice. This is a book that gives voice to the importance of spiritual formation for a new generation.
