Overview

"In rare but true interdisciplinary fashion, Brown, Dahl, and Reuschling probe the relationship of wholeness and holiness. Drawing on their respective specialties in biblical hermeneutics, the social sciences, and ethics, the authors convincingly demonstrate with freshness and clarity that wholeness and holiness are linked, and that the path to them is a joyful but precarious journey."--Dennis P. Hollinger, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"A compelling integrative conversation about spiritual formation. This remarkably broad and balanced book offers real wisdom about both the end of spiritual formation and the means of getting there."--James C. Wilhoit, Wheaton College; author, Spiritual Formation as if the Church Mattered

"This is not just a book about Christian formation. In a surprising way, it also traces the paths of becoming whole and holy as its authors model their own growth in their interactions with one another. Here is a conversation worth joining!"--Joel B. Green, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Becoming fully human before God and within the world should be a journey taken in community. In this book, a biblical scholar, a social scientist, and an ethicist sharpen one another's appreciation of this need for constructive interdependence and integration."--M. Daniel Carroll R., Denver Seminary; author, Christians at the Border

"This book is essential reading for students, pastors, and scholars who care about the pursuit of an authentically Christian life. The result is a splendid example of eminently practical theology that strengthens the church's mission to make disciples."--Jeffrey P. Greenman, Regent College

"What an amazing model of interdisciplinary conversation these three scholars offer in a fresh and fertile approach to becoming whole and holy. I highly recommend this book to those who are serious about being formed in God's image."--Judith K. Balswick, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Three scholars who are also friends have created a new way of working at the intersections of their disciplines to offer immensely rich reflections on the process of spiritual formation. I highly recommend this work."--David P. Gushee, Mercer University
