1) Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life
Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life – by Don Whitney (Professor of Biblical spirituality and Associate Dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY) – tells why the disciplines are important and teaches you how to cultivate them. Whitney bases the book around a simple command from 1 Timothy 4:7: “Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness.” A rich and rewarding read now in its second (updated) edition.
2) Praying the Bible
Dr. Donald S. Whitney – professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky – presents Praying the Bible.

3) Habits of Grace: Enjoying Jesus through the Spiritual Disciplines
