In our age of instant gratification and if-it-feels-good-do-it attitudes, self-discipline is hardly a popular notion. Former missionary and beloved author Elisabeth Elliot offers her understanding of discipline and its value for modern people. Now repackaged for the next generation of Christians, Discipline: The Glad Surrender shows readers how to - discipline the mind, body, possessions, time, and feelings-overcome anxiety-change poor habits and attitudes-trust God in times of trial and hardship-let Christ have control in all areas of life Elliot masterfully and gently takes readers through Scripture, personal stories, and lovely observations of the world around her in order to help them discover the understanding that our fulfillment as human beings depends on our answer to God's call to obedience.

From the Back Cover:

"We have come to imagine that discipleship is somehow an 'extra.' . . . Yet to be a Christian in New Testament terms is to be a disciple. There are no two ways about it."

With honesty and grace, beloved author Elisabeth Elliot guides you to a deeper understanding of discipline. It is not merely self-improvement or developing specific routines. Discipline defines the very shape of the believer's life.

This book explores areas of discipline that you may not have considered before-the disciplines of:

-body
-mind
-place (honoring others)
-time
-possessions
-work
-feelings

Being a disciple means answering yes to God's call, gladly surrendering yourself to the Master's orders. Discover how to place every aspect of your life under God's authority and find happiness and freedom there.

Elisabeth Elliot, one of the outstanding women of present-day Christianity, is the author of more than twenty books, including Passion and Purity, The Journals of Jim Elliot, and These Strange Ashes.
