Author: Tim Challies
Spiritual discernment is not limited to identifying doctrinal errors in a church context. As we face a daily deluge of worldly philosophies promoted by secular media, it is essential to be able to separate error from truth. The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment will help Christians cultivate greater biblical wisdom and understand the steps necessary to practice godly discernment in all kinds of settings and situations.
“Tim Challies is one of the finest young evangelical thinkers of our day. He combines keen insight with theological maturity and spiritual depth. The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment should help form the Christian character of a new generation of evangelicals. Indeed, we must hope so.”
—R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
"Unfortunately, in our time, even among Christians, discernment is long in demand and short in supply. This is but one reason I'm so delighted to commend to you The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. Tim Challies reminds us that the Bible commands us to cultivate discernment, but he doesn't stop there. He tells us how, biblically."
