Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation by Ruth Haley Barton
it’s a practical look at how to open oneself to spiritual transformation. she explains spiritual disciplines for Christians today in our culture (who tend to use the Bible for information instead of a way for speak to our souls and tend towards either buying into popular culture’s obsession with the body or over-reacting against it). she uses much of her own story, sharing her downfalls, struggles and blessings in these areas and although this is generally helpful, she does tend a bit towards expecting everyone to have similar struggles. nonetheless, her words provide challenges and encouragements to both beginners and those more experienced in opening up their entire being to know God.
