The Only Evangelism That Works: Be An Imagebearer

Book Review: The Life You’ve Always Wanted by John Ortberg

I love to read John Ortberg and this one if a great book for many reasons. Number one, John is a great story-teller and number two this book is about the spiritual disciplines. I actually read through this book almost 10 years ago and led a Bible study group through the disciplines in this book. It was eye-opening then and again the second time around. It is amazing how different people find different spiritual disciplines listed in the scriptures and this one is different from all the rest.

The disciplines covered in this book: Celebration, Slowing, Servant-hood, Confession, Receiving Guidance from the Holy Spirit, Secrecy, Reflection on Scripture, The Rule of Life, and Suffering.

John Ortberg does an outstanding job in this book helping us to see what seems to be every-day, mundane life as “spiritual life.” All of life teaches Bible Doctrine, all of life will be better if we learn to put into practice the Spiritual Disciplines.

I love this book.
