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.

Un livre essentiel

Sur quelle base repose mon service chrétien? L'auteur aborde cette question avec beaucoup de compétence. Ce livre est essentiel pour tout disciple de Jésus, toute personne s'engageant dans des responsabilités.
J'ai découvert (et savouré) ce livre il y a 20 ans, dans le cadre d'une formation de leaders. Il figure jusqu'à présent dans ma liste des dix meilleurs livres évangéliques. Je recommande vivement les livres de Gordon MacDonald qui sont riches, honnêtes et pertinents.

Ce livre contient un message si important à notre époque quand les apparences sont si importantes mais hélas souvent trompeuses ! C'est un bon rappel que nous devons avoir notre vie intérieure, notre 'jardin secret', bien entretenu.
