Discipline is a subject about which the scriptures say much, but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume....If there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline.
To open this book and find someone taking seriously the biblical call of agonizing to enter the kingdom and boxing and sweating like a champion to get victory over sin is the most refreshing thing I could have set my eyes on.
An outstanding volume for men and women alike! Over 250 pages devoted to the practical outworking of discipline on subjects like purity, marriage, prayer, the tongue, the mind, our work, leadership, ministry, and many, many more. I guarantee: Digest this book and you will bid the blahs farewell.
I enjoyed reading Disciplines of a Godly Man because it challenged my spirit. I highly recommend it to men who are not thin-skinned.
