Master teacher Keith Drury has taken the best from his two previous classics (Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People and With Unveiled Faces), and powerfully concentrated and updated it into this new and accessible book, offering the wisdom of ancient disciplines in simple, practical terms that today's Christians can understand and apply. Supported by modern research, Drury leads readers through the heart-softening effects of ancient practices. But then he takes believers beyond disciplines, holding up a mirror to reflect just what our souls should look like when God does the shaping. Learn to simply and consistently practice the disciplines God has given you, and learn to recognize the new shape God will make of your soul.

It seems that every follower of Christ at times becomes frustrated with his people. Many Christians become so frustrated with the church as an institution that they seek alternative forms of church or drop out of church altogether. But the truth is that we gather as a church because God has called us into community. And there are aspects of the Christian life that can only be learned while participating in worship and fellowship with other believers. In Gather: Why God Calls His People Together, Keith Drury shows how God uses Christian community and corporate worship to shape our lives and grow us spiritually. In whatever form of Christian community you participate, this book will guide you into the disciplines of Christian community and worship, show you how to participate effectively, and prepare your heart and life for the transformation of the Holy Spirit.

This introductory theology text explains key concepts in Christian doctrine and shows that doctrine is integrally linked to the practical realities of Christian life. In order to grow into more faithful practitioners of Christianity, we need to engage in the practice of learning doctrine and understanding how it shapes faithful lives. Beth Felker Jones helps students articulate basic Christian doctrines, think theologically so they can act Christianly in a diverse world, and connect Christian thought to their everyday life of faith. This book, written from a solidly evangelical yet ecumenically aware perspective, models a way of doing theology that is generous and charitable. It attends to history and contemporary debates and features voices from the global church. Sidebars made up of illustrative quotations, key Scripture passages, classic hymn texts, and devotional poetry punctuate the chapters.
