Back cover copy

Are you spiritually healthy, or just spiritually busy? If you're like many Christians who desire a deeper walk with Christ, you're probably pursuing activities geared to help you grow. But you may wonder if you're really making progress. You're spiritually active, but are you spiritually healthy? Would Jesus look at your endeavors (prayer, church attendance, evangelism, Bible study, etc.) and pronounce you spiritually fit? Or does He have an altogether different set of criteria by which He measures your spiritual well-being? Best-selling author Don Whitney (Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life) is no stranger to activities and disciplines designed to move believers toward a deeper relationship with Jesus. But the ten probing questions Whitney poses in this book will help you look beyond your spiritual activity to assess the true state of your spiritual health. His questions cut to the heart of the matter: Is your character becoming more like Christ's? Are you spiritually healthy, or just spiritually busy? Don Whitney will help you ask yourself the right questions for evaluating your growth in the areas that really matter.
