Recent book

Most books on the spiritual disciplines follow the same pattern: introduce the discipline, prove it from Scripture, and give tips for how to practice it.  This book does more than that.   It connects the disciplines to all of life. By showing how the disciplines have their greatest power when practiced in community and on mission, Nation gives Christians a bigger reason—and greater desire—to pursue spiritual disciplines. He also warns of what happens when they’re neglected.  Includes a multitude of examples, stories, and illustrations.  The book aims to inspire readers to nourish their lives with discipline, enjoy the fruit of godliness, and have a hand in building the church.

  • Uniquely practical amongst comp titles
  • Educates, but also calls Christians to community, mission
  • Believers need to know that spiritual disciplines are not just for the ‘super-spiritual’, but for all of us.
  • The disciplines lead to the mission and the mission leads to the disciplines. We need both and both need each other.
  • People want to know how to put their faith into action and grow up in the faith.  Missional spirituality does that.
