Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Life You've Always Wanted  Mar 9, 2007
Ortberg helps the reader see that spiritual disciplines are the pathway to joy. The disciplines are not the goal of a disciple but the path to experiencing a life in Christ that exudes real joy and transformation. This is a great read for ministry leaders or followers of Christ who want to invigorate their fellowship with Christ.
Ortberg does it again  Mar 8, 2007
This book is excellent. It is well written, challenging, and provocative. Just when the reader thinks John has written a chapter to top all previous ones, the next one is better. This is the best book we have done on spiritual growth in our Men's Den Sunday School Class. We previously read IF YOU WANT TO WALK ON WATER YOU'VE GOT TO GET OUT OF THE BOAT
Another solid work by Ortberg...  Feb 3, 2007
Having now read several of John Ortberg's books, I'm starting to get a feel for his style. His ability to tell an engaging story is unparalleled, and his books are always engaging and easy to read. "The Life You've Always Wanted" fits neatly into that pattern.

Because the topic of "The Life You've Always Wanted" is some of the traditional Christian spiritual disciplines, it draws natural comparisons to Richard Foster's "Celebration of Discipline." On some level, it might be fair to consider Ortberg's book to be "An Idiot's Guide to Richard Foster," and I'm not sure that Ortberg would necessarily mind that classification. Of course, the spiritual disciplines aren't for idiots, and I don't want to imply that Ortberg writes on a superficial level. However, he has obviously made the decision to write a book that is, quite frankly, more accessible if somewhat less exhaustive than Foster's classic. As such, Ortberg has added a nice addition to the spiritual disciplines library.

I would happily recommend this book to anyone interested in getting a taste for spiritual disciplines. Though it's easy to suggest that Ortberg omitted some essential disciplines, it seems as if comprehensiveness was never his intention. Instead, he appears to have wanted to write something that anyone could read and understand and apply, and he has accomplished that goal. Though I'd recommend Foster as a next step, this is a great place for any would-be Christ-follower to start!!
A Modern Classic that Enlightens while Equipping  Jan 4, 2007
First and foremost, this book is an amazing read that anyone who desires a more genuine relationship with Christ must have, period. Ortberg is one of the best communicators when it comes to revealing the potency of spiritual disciplines or discipleship activities and why they can help us so much.

This book is very well written and has a surprisingly nice flow from chapter to chapter despite the book being broken up into segmented sermons, more or less (which is by no means a bad thing).

You can certainly see how Dallas Willard has influenced Ortberg's ideas and communication styles (especially Willard's "The Spirit of the Disciplines" and "The Divine Conspiracy").

The best part of the book is the fact that it is easily and readily applicable to your every-day life.

Much like J.G. Marking's, "A Voice Is Calling" (who cites Ortberg a few times), this book's entire goal is to equip you to authentically and passionately pursue God with a revitalized perspective on discipleship and an enlightened sense of one's relationship with Christ.

One of the best books I've ever read and a book that changed my life.
John Ortberg brings it strong  Nov 10, 2006
This book was huge. John Ortberg presents truths from the Bible and how to use them in small, everyday ways that are very applicable no matter what season you are going through in life.
