Zondervan The Life You've Always Wanted Participant's Guide: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People

In The Life You've Always Wanted John Ortberg taught us how simple spiritual disciplines can help us move beyond superficial Christianity to a life of dedicated discipleship. Now, with the Life You've Always Wanted Participant's Guide, which can be used with or without the excellent Video/DVD Curriculum, he has provided a resource that will help us embark on the road of discipleship together. The Participant's Guide is filled with intriguing insights, provocative questions and practical applications that will challenge our communities to set superficial Christianity aside so that we can live the life of dedicated disciples.

Jam packed with information, scripture, and insights, but at least 1 1/2 -2hrs. are necessary to cover everything in each unit.

Great companion to Ortberg's DVD/video study on spiritual disciplines. Challenging questions and "assignments". Very helpful in growing in Christ.

It was a very good and practical teaching. We are reviewing it now to do small groups for our church.

I'm currently teaching this as a class at our church (with the DVD curriculum) and I'd love to give this study 5 stars because it's incredibly important and helpful for spiritual transformation, but the problem is they try to cram everything into six weeks! I wish they would redo it so each week is focused on studying one discipline instead of two. It's tough to practice the discipline of "slowing down" when we're rushing to cover prayer too!

Ortberg will keep you laughing and crying as you learn how easy it is as an ordinary person to share your faith with everyone you meet, as well as, build discipline into your life to make you the person God intended you to be. A must read!
