<transcy>Ordering Your Private World (Une vie intérieure ordonnée)</transcy>
We have diaries, electronic calendars and all kinds of notepads to help us organize our daily work and social life. What about the organization of the other aspect of our life, ie the spiritual aspect?
One of the toughest battles of our times is unfolding in everyone's private universe. The values of our western culture lead us to believe that the busiest and most active people in the ministry are those who are also the most spiritual.
As we tend to pay more attention to the in the public sphere than in the private sphere, we are investing more and more time in programs and meetings. The weight of our responsibilities at home, at work, and at church has brought many good people to the brink of exhaustion.
In An Orderly Inner Life Gordon MacDonald prepares a new generation of people to live their lives focusing on their private world to achieve the victory necessary for a fruitful public life.
GORDON MACDONALD is an internationally renowned author, speaker and teacher. He was a pastor for over 40 years and most recently a senior minister at Grace Chapel (Lexington, Massachusetts).
