Disciplines of a Godly Man

Crossway released an expanded and updated version of this book:

Kent Hughes. Disciplines of a Godly Man. Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2019.

I read DOAGM when I was an undisciplined, never-wake-up-for-an-alarm 20-year-old. Hughes helped me to see that nothing worthy of attaining in life comes without paying the price of discipline. I’m thankful that Crossway has chosen to expand and update the book. Here are the chapter titles:

  1. Discipline for Godliness
  2. Discipline of Purity
  3. Discipline of Marriage
  4. Discipline of Fatherhood
  5. Discipline of Friendship
  6. Discipline of Mind
  7. Discipline of Devotion
  8. Discipline of Prayer
  9. Discipline of Worship
  10. Discipline of Integrity
  11. Discipline of Tongue
  12. Discipline of Work
  13. Discipline of Perseverance
  14. Discipline of Church
  15. Discipline of Leadership
  16. Discipline of Giving
  17. Discipline of Witness
  18. Discipline of Ministry
  19. Grace of Discipline

Here are the endorsements for DOAGM:

“I am so weary of the peculiar therapeutic atmosphere in which we live today that is scared stiff to tell anybody to do anything or to warn anybody of dangerous consequences of failing to take responsibility for his or her life. So to find someone taking seriously the biblical call for ‘agonizing to enter the kingdom’ and striving like a gymnast to become godly and boxing and sweating like a champion to get victory over sin is the most refreshing thing I could have set my eyes on.”
John Piper, Founder and Teacher, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary; author, Desiring God

“Every Christian man, whether a new believer or a mature Christian, will be challenged again and again by this remarkably wise and fascinating book. Kent Hughes skillfully weaves together the teachings of Scripture with real-life examples as he powerfully teaches us what true Christian manhood looks like in the ordinary details of our lives. I highly recommend this update of a book that is becoming a Christian classic.”
Wayne Grudem, Distinguished Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary; author, Christian Ethics

“Discipline is a subject about which the Scriptures say much—but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume. You’ll be challenged and encouraged as you read. And if there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline.” 
John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; Chancellor Emeritus, The Master’s University and Seminary
