Genuine And Wholesome Spirituality

This is the goal of all Christian living. It sounds so simple, doesn't it? Perhaps the principle may be, but living by the principle is another matter altogether.

In Balancing the Christian Life, Dr. Charles Ryrie reminds you that "the Bible must be the guide and test of all our experiences in the spiritual life... and if any experience fails to pass that test, it must be discarded." He warns that "an unbalanced application of the doctrines related to spirituality will result in an unbalanced Christian life."

Ryrie examines numerous key issues of spirituality, including

  • The old and the new life
  • Sanctification
  • Using your gifts
  • Routine faithfulness
  • Wiles of the Devil
  • Temptation
  • Confession and forgiving

For more than 25 years, "Balancing the Christian Life" has been changing lives worldwide. Take time to read this classic study — and allow it to change yours.

An extensive new study guide will help you understand and apply these principles to your life.
