While Stanley makes some great points here, he reduces our walks with God into formulas and lists. Discipline, don't get me wrong, is critical in the Christian life, but it is only a small part of that life, which must ultimately come from the heart and soul. Stanley puts too much emphasis on the Christian rather than on Christ, which I think could be a touch misleading. Still, I found the book very helpful and well reasoned in many places, and I would not hesitate to loan it out if someone were interested (though I would more likely give John Piper's DESIRING GOD).

To many in the world, the Christian faith is a set of rules and regulations. But Jesus himself did not teach his followers in sets of dos and don'ts; he taught them foundational principles to live by. These life principles, Charles Stanley says, are the simple truths that act as a compass for our souls.

You will learn:

Your life is a Masterpiece Waiting on God is not passive Disappointments are inevitable, but discouragement is a choice You were created with eternity in your heart God assumes full responsibility for your needs when you obey Him

Using examples from his own personal experiences, Biblical personalities, and case studies, Dr. Stanley demonstrates how these key life principles impact life in the 21st century-and how they make us, as Christians, different from those who live their lives according to preference, rather than principles.
