Discipline is a subject widely covered in the scriptures, but little spoken of. What does the Bible really say? And what place should we give it in our lives?

Kent Hughes challenges you: what if you were always looking more to be like Christ? To do this, work on your relationships. Take care of your soul and your character. Pay close attention to your ministry. The author will guide you using the Bible to give you ever more pleasure in your spiritual growth. Because nothing should stand in the way of our greatest ambition: to know Jesus, to love him and to be more like him.

Recommendations

“Discipline is a subject much spoken of in the Scriptures - but one that contemporary writers have strangely overlooked. Kent Hughes fills a great void with this excellent book. As you read, you will be encouraged and constantly challenged. And if there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this work will surely ignite it with a fiery passion for the discipline of godliness. »
- John MacArthur, Pastor of Grace Community Church

"This is one of the best books I have read ... What an exceptional book! I can guarantee you that if you understand this book well, you will say goodbye to all empty talk. »
- Charles R. Swindoll, President of Dallas Theological Seminary and author

"I opened up Man of God, practice godliness, and found a person who takes seriously the biblical call to 'strive to enter the kingdom', to do everything possible to to become holy like a gymnast, to fight and sweat like a champion for victory… and that was the most refreshing thing to me. Thank you for your courage and thank you also for swimming against the tide. May the Lord allow your book to last a long time and for the truths it contains to be fully honored. »
- John Piper, Founder of desiringGod.org and author of May the Nations Rejoice!

"Training workers is fundamentally character training. The apostle Paul exhorts Timothy to practice godliness (1 Timothy 4: 8). We pray that God will raise up men of God, models to follow. This book is an excellent character learning tool for the pastor trainer and his protégé. Read it and share it with your mentor or coach. It will serve as your guide, from discipline to discipline. With the help of the Spirit, you will then be in the spiritual gymnasium, persevering in training yourself, in becoming a man attached to God. »
