John Ortberg claims that the problem with people is not that we are too happy for God;s taste, but that we are not happy enough. Basically spiritual disciplines for ordinary people.

WOW!! What a great book! This is the first book of John Ortberg's that I've read and the first book I got through PBS. What an eye opener! This is a MUST READ even if you're not Christian! He writes so REAL! You "GET IT", can relate, and understand! Many times you'll just laugh out loud! I have enjoyed this book to the fullest. Definitely a book you can read over and over again and learn something new every time. Also, a great guide to live by. I'd love to meet him someday to tell him the changes I've made in my own life because of his book.

I love John Ortberg!! He is now my 2nd favorite author, right after CS Lewis. This books shares some "Spiritual Disciplines" to help in our growth as followers of Jesus Christ - but not the ones you have heard of before. Things like taking a "DoDah Day" - taking a day to enjoy God and his wonderful creation as you go through your daily routine. This book is readable and livable.
