Foreword by Clark H. Pinnock
In a society hungering for satisfaction and fulfillment, spirituality has become the catchphrase of the early twenty-first century. While popular culture explores spiritual life without religion, some Christians are experiencing religion devoid of spirituality and inspiration. Barry Callen contends that religion and spirituality must coexist and demonstrates in this thorough yet accessible book the riches of practicing authentic Christian spirituality.
Callen begins this engaging introduction with basic definitions and a description of the fluid relationship between God and humans. The core chapters draw first on select language and teaching of the Bible, then on the related key elements of the Christian year‹one of the six spiritual traditions of the church (as identified by Richard Foster), and finally on the theological teaching of the Apostles¹ Creed. This rich heritage accents the "streams" of Christian spirituality. In light of the resources unpacked, a final chapter suggests helpful paths for personal spiritual maturing.
Developed out of the classroom, the book provides a college-level introduction to Christian spirituality and includes significant historical and theological background, informative sidebars, a glossary, a list of select spiritual leaders, extensive notes, and a bibliography for further reading appropriate for undergraduates.
A broad array of theological voices are echoed throughout this work as it evidences the rich textures and contours of the catholic Christian tradition. As such it is a truly ecumenical evangelical work in the best sense of the term and should reach a wide array of denominational readers.About the Author:
