Good sound book about discipleship and devotions
Dylan Habegger
You know...this is one of the best books I've ever read. This man is honest and very introspected. He thinks as an over thinker, but with poise because of his roots in Christ. He acknowledges doubts and encourages to fight through it. Amazing book! Must read!

I am Fighting to finish reading this book...not that it's not interesting though...It's a fight for me to read books...but this book tells about the real FIGHT...A great book I must say!!
If I could just give one book to everyone seeking to understand what it means to be a committed follower of Jesus Christ...this would be the book.
This book is ideal for new Christians and struggling ones. It lays out clear "how-to" put into practice Christian habits.
am citit-o in liceu si e una din cartile care le recitesc adesea. foarte buna.
This book is awesome. John White is really wise and he knows what he is talking about. Each chapter is about a practical topic, so the book never gets boring. It goes over the Word, prayer, fellowship, warfare, evangelism, faith, and sanctification. What I like the most his how passionate White is about the topics. Even if you think you know all the basics, you'll get a lot out of this book.
Very practical, without fluffy, trite sayings that don't really "work" in reality. Since White was also a psychiatrist, he is realistic, yet (I think) inspired, about his directives in the Christian life. Challenging, too.
