A Man's Guide to the Spiritual Disciplines by Patrick Morley

What a fantastic book to read. A Man's Guide to the Spiritual Disciplines by Patrick Morley is a wonderful resource for men who want to strengthen their walk with Christ. Morley tackles twelve disciplines that we as men should start to make a habit in our lives. It says this on the back of the dustcover of the book, "To become the kind of man who walks with God and wields Christ's influence in your world, you'll want to begin a consistent regimen of spiritual exercises." These disciplines are exactly that, exercises. These are things that we will have to work at, though some more come easier than others, or there are some that we are currently doing well. This book is written in a very easy way to understand with some great examples on how to work at these disciplines. The disciplines that Morley challenges men with in this book are:
1. A Man and Creation
2. A Man and the Bible
3. A Man and Prayer
4. A Man and Worship
5. A Man and the Sabbath
6. A Man and Fellowship
7. A Man and Counsel
8. A Man and Fasting
9. A Man and Spiritual Warfare
10. A Man and Stewardship
11. A Man and Service
12. A Man and Evangelism
Morley presents these as a challenge for men to further their walk with God and grow in their relationships with their families and other men. He also presents this as a book that could be used in a men's group study. This book was great to read and go through on my own, but adding a small group of men would add an even greater depth; a practical application of the discipline of fellowship. This is a great read and resource for any man wanting to grown and learn about what it means to be a Godly man.

Special thanks to Moody Publishers for providing this complimentary book to read and review.
