Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction

The Common Rule Audiobook By Justin Whitmel Earley cover art

Practical Steps for Spiritual Development

Justin Whitmel Earley does and excellent job of reducing spiritual truths into practical steps. I have found his suggestion of Bible first, then phone to be extraordinarily helpful. He deals with fasting, prayer, sabbath and confession and suggests rules we can abide by in daily life. The Author is a lawyer, and I suspect he is highly organized, at least compared to me. Some of his suggestions give me anxiety because it just sounds like to much order. Perhaps in that way I am a bit like a kid who doesn’t want to clean there room. I really liked this book, and I would suggest reading it along side: Liturgy of the Ordinary, https://metabolizinggodsword.com/2023/02/18/liturgy-of-the-ordinary/ These two books have a very similar massage. The difference is where Justin Whitmel Earley seeks to add habits to our day, Tish Harrison Warren seeks to help us see our habits with spiritual meaning. There is a ton of overlap between these two wonderful books.

The production quality of this audiobook is excellent.
