I’ve known Jerry as a spiritual father for nearly 50 years now. “For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers.” 1 Cor. 4:15 (ESV) I commend Living Inside Out to you and your spiritual offspring as from a father, not just a guide. Jesus said you will know them by their fruits. To know the author is to enter a family full of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. May the transparency of this read bring the same righteousness, peace and joy to you and yours...

Dr. Haynes tells us that spirituality begins in the heart. And like a fine tapestry, he weaves key qualities for believers with four main disciplines using Scripture and ample examples from the early church to the present. I loved the stories from church history and the footnotes. A fine addition to any Christian’s library.

Dr. Jerry Haynes lays out a beautifully simple and symmetrical structure and fills it with his rich knowledge of the Bible, church history and Jewish traditions, weaving the themes of inter-related Christian qualities and disciplines. His work is academic in scope and depth, yet very readable and accessible to all. Here is a balanced perspective to help us navigate challenging times.
