We have schedule planners, computerized calendars, and self-stick notes tohelp us organize our business and social lives everyday. But what about organizing the other sideof our lives the spiritual side?
One of the great battlegrounds of the new century is within the private world of the individual.The values of our Western culture incline us to believe that the busy, publicly activeperson in ministry is also the most spiritual.
Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities athome, work, and church have resulted in a lot of good people on the verge of collapse.
In this timely update of his classicOrdering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald equips anew generation to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary forpublic effectiveness.
With much enthusiasm I recommend this book to all of you who, like me, need order in yourprivate world.
