"Discipline is a subject about which the Scriptures say much-but
contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills
a gaping void with this superb volume.… If there is a spark
of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it
into a blazing passion for godly discipline."

-John MacArthur, pastor and best-selling

"This is a book for men who are eager to learn how to be more
effective. It comes from the pen of one who has learned to serve as
he has led and who is able to provide the reader with many
practical applications of eternal truth."

-C. William Pollard, Chairman and CEO, The
ServiceMaster Company

"To open this book and find someone taking seriously the
biblical call of'agonizing to enter the kingdom' and… boxing
and sweating like a champion to get victory over sin is the most
refreshing thing I could have set my eyes on."

-John Piper, pastor and popular author

"An outstanding volume for men and women alike!… Over 250
pages devoted to the practical outworking of discipline on subjects
like purity, marriage, prayer, the tongue, the mind, our work,
leadership, ministry, and many, many more. I guarantee: Digest this
book and you will bid the blahs farewell."

-Charles Swindoll, pastor and best-selling

challenged my spirit. I highly recommend it to men who are not

-Mike Singletary, Hall of Fame linebacker for the

personal devotions as well as for assisting young followers of
Christ to grow in their walk with God."
