Take a visit to your local Christian bookstore and you'll likely find numerous books on discipleship that encourage spiritual disciplines such as journaling, solitude, silence, or fasting. You're also likely to find books that focus on discipleship at home, or work, in financial decision making, or in the area of personal relationships. But you will probably be hard-pressed to find books on becoming a disciple through learning the Christian faith in all of its dramatic and doctrinal splendor. What are the keys of effective disciple making? That's the focus of this edition of White Horse Inn.

  • I'm pushing play, and it's telling me "File Not Found." Just wanted to give y'all a heads up. Looking forward to this week's show!

    Enjoyed the discussion on WORD-FM out of Pittsburgh, Pa: but seemed to be just negative. What is reformed meditation?

    Thank you for another thought provoking, insightful gospel conversation. For reformed, gospel centered devotional writing, I have been greatly blessed by "Luther's Prayers" (which contains his very pastoral letter to Peter the Barber on how to pray) and Valley of Vision.

    Thinking devotionally, I'm reminded of the tremendous devotional value of rich, doctrinal teaching:


    C. S. Lewis:
    For my own part, I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books, and I rather suspect that the same experience may await others. I believe that many who find that ‘nothing happens’ when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a tough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

    B. B. Warfield:
    Sometimes we hear it said that ten minutes on your knees will give you a truer, deeper, more operative knowledge of God than ten hours over your books. What! Than ten hours over your books on your knees?”

  • Most devotional books I've been gifted with (never having had the interest to buy one) are, to be blunt, horrid. Fluffy-happy-happy, then the questions at the end: Believer, are YOU spending time with the Lord? Believer, are YOU needing to forgive someone today....? And on it goes.

    I've come to Reformed theology because it is Scriptural, and true, and eternal. Would Christ address my "felt needs?" NO, He'd tell me the truth.

    Thank you gentlemen for another thought-provoking discussion.

    I'm curious about the Reformation view on fasting. I come from a Baptist background that said to fast whenever you wanted something really badly.
