adult spiritual Formation


  • For an introduction to the spiritual disciplines and spiritual formation, read John Ortberg’s The Life You’ve Always Wanted. This book is an easy read.

  • If you are already interested in the topic and know something about it, check out Foster’s Celebration of Discipline. This book is not a hard read, nor is it too elementary.

  • If you love spiritual disciplines and formation and want to grow deeper, read Dallas Willard’s The Spirit of the Disciplines

  • For a book that talks about how we are formed by the competing world of God’s Spirit and the world around us, read You Are What You Love by James K.A. Smith

  • A Long Obedience in the Same Direction by Eugene Peterson is a wonderful book about the journey of faith in everyday life.
