John Ortberg has a remarkable gift. He has captured the essence of Spiritual Formation and put it on the bottom shelf. He successfully accomplished that feat with his release of The Life You’ve Always Wanted, which he devoted to the classic spiritual disciplines. He has done it again with his latest offering titled ME: the me I want to be.
Ortberg tackles six areas of life and applies the principles of spiritual formation in a sensible and attainable way. On the surface the book appears to be another in a long line of the self help genre, but a deeper examination reveals that his writing is thoroughly biblical.
Using ample doses of humor and practical illustrations, ME is packed with wisdom and guidance for those who want to become all that God has created them to be. I would commend this book as a resource for personal growth and for small group Bible study. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
