About the Study
What are the core spiritual disciplines that have shaped the lives of Christians from apostolic times to today? In Disciplines of the Spirit, Maxie Dunnam provides a practical and inspiring study on the powerful ways countless generations and continents of believers—from the newest convert to the most seasoned saint—have grown as Christ-followers.
Maxie Dunnam, who is counted among this generation’s most able writers on prayer and the Christian’s inner life, helps us understand in simple language and through practical examples how we can order our spiritual lives in the company of the saints. The increasing complexity of modern life renders the depths of joyous love that are experienced through these time-tested disciplines more important than ever.
This study includes seven weeks of brief daily readings. Each entry includes a practical reflection and journaling exercise that will help the reader experience the fullness of the written message. At the conclusion of each week there is a discussion outline and short video (available on DVD or streaming) that enables the readings to be used in small-group contexts.
