Lord, Change my Attitude before it’s too Late

by James MacDonald

James McDonald uses the imagery of Israel’s wilderness wanderings to zero in on the negative attitudes we can allow into our lives that keep us in our own “spiritual” wilderness. He identifies 5 negative attitudes that Christians commonly hold and which keep us in the spiritual wilderness. He then proposes 5 godly or biblical attitudes that need to replace the negative ones, which lead us out of the spiritual wilderness. He orders each chapter around what he calls “6 tools” that are very

helpful for a small group of people to work through together.

The Pursuit of Holiness

by Jerry Bridges

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

You Can Change

by Tim Chester

It’s about heart change, not behavior change. This interactive book, laid out in workbook fashion, is for newer Christians struggling with sin and for more mature Christians who have plateaued in their faith as they seek to find victory over sin in their lives. With a conviction that sanctification is God’s work and the journey to holiness is joyful, Chester guides readers through a “change project” beginning with the selection of one area of life they would like to modify. Each chapter includes a question (e.g., Why would you like to change? What truths do you need to turn to?) to guide readers as they deal with a specific sin or struggle, truths from God’s word, and a reflection

guide to help readers through their change project.
