Publisher's Summary

We have schedule planners, computerized calendars, and self-stick notes to help us organize our business and social lives every day. But what about organizing the other side of our lives - the spiritual side?

One of the great battlegrounds of the new century is within the private world of the individual. The values of our Western culture incline us to believe that the busy, publicly active person in ministry is also the most spiritual.

Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities at home, work, and church have resulted in a lot of good people on the verge of collapse.

In this timely update of his classic Ordering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald equips a new generation to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary for public effectiveness.

Critic Reviews

"With much enthusiasm I recommend this book to all of you who, like me, need order in your private world." (Charles Swindoll, chancellor, Dallas Theological Seminary)
"This book was the primary instrument that God used to motivate me to integrate spiritual disciplines into my daily walk with Christ...I shudder to think where I'd be today had I not read it." (Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church)

A good and necessary read.

There were certain chapters that had to be read and re-read because they were so convicting and thought provoking. I will need to read this book again.

So thankful for this book!

Was such a beautiful reading, and so necessary for belelievers to hear now. Our world is chaotic, but how do we deal with that when our inner one is just as, if not more, chaotic? The author speaks truth in its clearest form that we need to put our inner world first. Definitely gave me insight to my own world and ideas on how to organise it better.
