The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment

9781581349092The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. By Tim Challies

This is an excellent book.  It speaks to the need today for Christians to be discerning.  The author defines discernment as “the skill of understanding and applying God’s Word with the purpose of separating truth from error and right from wrong.  It is a task in which we attempt to see things as God sees them.”

He reminds us that the Bible commands us to cultivate this habit or discipline of discernment. In the last chapter he takes a situation and walks you through step by step how you would apply this in your daily life.

There is also a study guide for each chapter in the back of the book for individual or group study.  I highly recommend this book.
