For 25 years, people have looked to this book–which focuses on the Bible as the one, true guide to spirituality–for guidelines to genuine and wholesome living. In this special 25th anniversary edition, Moody Press commemorates the author and his contributions to the Christian community.

Brief Description:

Charles Ryrie reminds us that the Bible must be the guide and test for all our experiences in the spiritual life….and if any experience fails to pass the test, it must be discarded.

Brief Description:

Genuine and wholesome spirituality is the goal of all Christian living. It sounds so simple, doesn’t it?

Perhaps the principle may be, but living by the principle is another matter altogether. In Balancing the Christian Life, Charles Ryrie reminds you that “the Bible must be the guide and test for all our experiences in the spiritual life… and if any experience fails to pass that test, it must be discarded.” He warns that “an unbalanced application of the doctrines related to spirituality will result in an unbalanced Christian life.”

Ryrie examines numerous key issues of spirituality, including:

  • The old and the new life
  • Sanctification
  • Using your gifts
  • Routine faithfulness
  • Wiles of the Devil
  • Temptation
  • Confession
  • Forgiveness

For more than 40 years, Balancing the Christian Life has been changing lives worldwide. Take time to read this classic study and allow it to change yours.

Includes a 32-page study guide.
