John MacArthur

pastor and teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; president, The Master’s College and Seminary

Disciplines is a subject about which the Scriptures say much - but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume... If there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline.

John Piper

Pastor for Preaching & Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN

To open this book and find someone taking seriously the Biblical call of 'agonizing to enter the Kingdom' and... 'boxing and sweating like a champion to get victory over sin' is the most refreshing thing I could have set my eyes on.

Charles Swindoll

pastor and best-selling author

An outstanding volume for men and women alike!... Over 250 pages devoted to the practical outworking of discipline on subjects like purity, marriage, prayer, the tongue, the mind, our work, leadership, ministry, and many, many more. I guarantee: Digest this book and you will bid the blahs farewell.

“Highly valuable book to challenge how we live our Christian lives”

When you have a book that has been revised and updated several times since it was first printed in 1991, you know you have something rather special.
This valuable book focuses on practical discipline in many differing aspects of our lives in 19 chapters split into 6 parts. The chapters are easy to read and packed with life examples and scriptural passages to guide our thinking. At the end of each chapter are helpful applications to the topic being studied and useful additional resources for further reading.

This book has several uses; as a text for personal reading; for personal in depth study through to group teaching and discussions.

It is a well thought out comprehensive compilation of encouragements and challenges to help us grow in godliness and well worth having a copy to hand.

“Worth it”

(Review written for 'Disciplines of a Godly Man')

The ease of checkout through thegoodbook's site is sleek.
Moreover, the quality of the ebook is real excellent.
And the content of the book is superb too. When practiced, it has the potential to draw us real close to Christ.

“Extremely helpful and a real encouragement to godly living”

(Review written for 'Disciplines of a Godly Man')

I fully recommend this book to any man who wants to take their faith seriously. Disciplines of a Godly family is equally good - packed with great practical ideas for the family man.

“A 'must read' for any man who wants to grow in Faith”

(Review written for 'Disciplines of a Godly Man')

Having just taken over the leadership of our Men's Ministry' at my Church this book has opened my eyes to what God wants to see if ALL men. I only wish I could afford to buy every man in my Church a copy. Once they have read it they could pass it on. Everything is explained in such a way that I often stopped to think, 'Why didn't I see that before'. I must have for every Christian Man's bookshelf (once he's read it !)
