A 40 Day Spiritual Workout For Catholics - Bob Rice

A 40 Day Spiritual Workout For Catholics
Bob Rice
Servant Publications

ISBN 9781616365264

This book was a spiritual treasure trove. I loved it! Each day I looked forward to the straightforward devotional and teaching. I especially loved reading the digital edition and always having it on me, on my phone, my iPad, my computer at work and home. Bob Rice has put together a great tool here that will spur spiritual growth and deeper devotion.

Each day has the following components:
Hydration: Bible verse or quotes.
Reflection: Meditation
Muscle-Building: Intercession
Cardiovascular: Praise
Cool Down: Prayer

The book is written in such a way that you have a short reading or readings each day from the bible; then quotes from Catholic authors, the Catechism or church writings. Then comes the teaching. And trust me, Bob's teaching is marvelous. This book will help you develop spiritual disciplines and improve upon those you already have. Once you start, you will find you keep up the habits well beyond the 40 days. It is a great read and I recommend it to anyone who wants a deeper spiritual life.
