Spiritual discernment is good for more than just making monumental decisions according to God's will. It is an essential, day-to-day activity that allows thoughtful Christians to separate the truth of God from error and to distinguish right from wrong in all kinds of settings and situations. It is also a skill - something that any person can develop and improve, especially with the guidance in this book.
Author Tim Challies does not do the discerning for readers; he simply shows them how to practically apply scriptural tools, principles and wisdom so that their conclusions about everything - people, teachings, decisions, media and organisations - will be consistent with God's Word.
"Unfortunately, in our time, even among Christians, discernment is long in demand and short in supply... Tim Challies reminds us that the Bible commands us to cultivate discernment, but he doesn't stop there. He tells us how, biblically." - J. Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
