There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Verified Purchase. If you are looking for a book on Spiritual Disciplines I recommend that you look elsewhere. This book lacks in many areas in dealing with spiritual issues, it makes me question the validity of the author to write such a book. It is very elementary, and I do not mean that in a good way.

Every chapter is full of stories from John's life, it is evident that Scripture is secondary to his life, his experiences, and his "wisdom". Rarely does he use full passages of Scripture, he often drops a line of Scripture in passing while he attempts to get to the next story which is generally cheesy and not that relevant.

I am not intending on sounding harsh, I am not happy that I wasted my money and time with this book. Unless you are required to read it for a class I appeal to you to stay away from this book. I have not read other books from this author, but after this one I doubt I will even attempt to read something else written by him.

The last chapter is actually the most helpful and has the most Scripture usage. Instead of focusing on traditional disciplines Sabbath-keeping, fasting, etc.

Ortberg gets to the nitty-gritty of real life--those things each of us deals with on a daily basis. Things like self-control, jealousy, anger--you know the list.

But wait Ortberg's sometimes quirky but always refreshing sense of humor is just the spoonful of sugar this subject requires. I'm recommending it to my friends. I purchased the book through Amazon. Roberta Rhodes. Ortberg's book takes a different look at spiritual disciplines and how using them can result in a more complete life. Discussing things like celebration, slowing, prayer, servanthood, confession, and more, Ortberg offers readers an opportunity to engage in spiritual disciplines in meangful ways.

Often Christians are reluctant to engage in these disciplines because they have a perception that they are for the "super holy". Ortberg does a great job of breaking this mentality and offers real life examples of how an "ordinary person" could complete these disciplines.

In my personal opinion, the book is worth whatever you pay for it for Chapter 5 on Slowing. However the entire book is well worth the price of it. It is in my top 5 most underlined books ever. You should pick it up!. I actually had to read this book for a spiritual formation class I took in seminary, but I enjoyed it as much as any of my pleasure reading I've done.

One of the best books I have ever read. This is one of those books I will put on my "read at least once a year" list. Ortberg outlines the problem, the solution, and ways to achieve the solution, to get "the life you've always wanted. This is one of the few books I've read that has a main goal of transformation, not information. It seems the author truly wants the reader to be changed by the gospel and the spiritual disciplines. I appreciate this.

He describes the process of becoming a person who lives victoriously and Christ-like as morphing, and describes the pre-morphed life as one of disappointment and guilt. Ortberg confesses his life disappointments which are common to most of us - desiring to be a better parent, spouse, and Christian.

Rather than just trying to act like a better person or doing the right things, Ortberg suggest that the morphing process will make us want to do the right things and make us be a better person.

In making his assessment of the current state of the church, Ortberg quotes William Iverson who wrote: "A pound of meat would surely be affected by a quarter pound of salt. He contends that Christians are not bringing about the changes in the world that Jesus spoke about and concludes that it is because very few people actually morph into the Chris-like beings we are instructed to become.

Ortberg reveals that the reason Christians are not worth their salt in the earth, is that we have been trying instead of training. He points to the disciplines of studying the Bible, prayer, being joyful, and unhurried as training methods that must be practiced in daily life.

He also includes a section on servant hood, and confession before he sums it all up with a discussion on the role of the Holy Spirit as He le us into transformation. The book ends with a chapter on suffering which deals with coming to terms with unanswered prayers and persevering through our suffering. See all reviews.
