Spiritual Formation: Day 31

31 Days


Writing about spiritual formation for 31 days has been an eye-opening experience. When I started this series, I thought I had a lot to say. I've learned that talking about anything for 31 days straight is hard work! And I have a new appreciation for the authors who have made teaching their life's work.

Some of you may be eager to learn more, and I'd like to point you to the best resources I've found. There's quite a lot written about spiritual formation these days. Some of it is very good, but some of it is not. Here is a list of books that I've found to be the very best.

By Richard J. Foster:
Celebration of Discipline
PRAYER: Finding the Heart's True Home
Streams of Living Water

By Dallas Willard:
The Spirit of the Disciplines
The Divine Conspiracy
Renovation of the Heart

By James Bryan Smith:
The Good and Beautiful God
The Good and Beautiful Life
The Good and Beautiful Community

By John Ortberg:
The Life You've Always Wanted

Thank you to everyone who joined me on this 31-day journey. May God guide us all as we seek to become more and more like Jesus!
