Overview

Genuine and wholesome spirituality is the goal of all Christian living. It sounds so simple, doesn't it? Perhaps the principle may be, but living by the principle is another matter altogether. In Balancing the Christian Life, Charles Ryrie reminds you that "the Bible must be the guide and test for all our experiences in the spiritual life ...and if any experience fails to pass that test, it must be discarded." He warns that "an unbalanced application of the doctrines related to spirituality will result in an unbalanced Christian life."

Ryrie examines numerous key issues of spirituality, including:

  • The old and the new life
  • Sanctification
  • Using your gifts
  • Routine faithfulness
  • Wiles of the Devil
  • Temptation
  • Confessing
  • Forgiving

    I love reading Charles Ryrie books!

    I met Charles Ryrie once. He was sitting next to me on an airplane. He was very humble and I didn't know he was famous until I saw a book writtn by him. Now, every time I open up one of his books and start reading it i can just imagine him sitting there writing this book. I am really glad I met him!

    Spiritual Disciplines for Christian Living

    A biblically based look at spirituality, which the author defines as the goal of all Christian living. The book looks at some basic biblical concepts, personal responsiblities, and practical issues affecting Christians today. The study guide in the 25th Anniversary edition really complements the text by providing an opportunity to evaluate your own spiritual life topic by topic. It even allows room for those who might disagree with some of Dr. Ryrie's conclusions to develop a scriptural rationale for their positions.
