TDoSD: Another Endorsement

A couple of nights ago I received a new endorsement for The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. As I mentioned the first time an endorsement came in, I will continue to share these because, in many ways, I feel that this book was a community effort as readers of the site prayed for me, encouraged me, proofread the book (in a few cases), and generally made it all possible. This third endorsement is courtesy of Dr. Mark Dever who you know as the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC, the founder of 9Marks Ministries, the author of several notable books, and one of the four men who founded Together for the Gospel. Here is what he said about the book:

“If you were more discerning you’d probably buy this book. If you do read this book, you will be! Tim Challies has written on a topic that is both important and rarely addressed. This book on discernment is simple, clear, well-written and well-illustrated, accurate and even insightful. I read it all. I liked it all. I will recommend it often. Ten short, pithy chapters. Read 1 a day for 10 days, and I guess that you’ll find yourself more discerning—or at least wanting to be.”

Thanks to Mark for the blurb and, perhaps even more importantly, for providing several great suggestions for which I am very grateful.
