Overview

This volume, edited by Jeffrey P. Greenman and George Kalantzis, marks another compilation from the Wheaton Theology Conference. 2009's event produced the wealth of work represented here exploring the theological foundations for a faithful approach to the church practices that contribute to spiritual formation, that is, to our sanctification in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Including essays from keynote speakers Dallas Willard and Gordon Fee as well as contributing essays by noted presenters such as Chris Hall, David Gushee, Linda Cannell, Cherith Fee Nordling and Lawrence Cunningham, this book offers a stimulating exploration of the historical, biblical and theological dimensions of spiritual formation. It will be of special interest to those who serve as pastors, spiritual directors, church ministry leaders and Christian educators.

Editorial Reviews

Diane J. Chandler
"This volume offers a readable and well-rounded treatise on Christian spiritual formation from many perspectives and faith traditions. In a world awash with confusion related to authentic spirituality and the church divesting its voice in the discussion, Life in the Spirit provides a refreshing call to renew our Christian roots, recommit to spiritual formations, and prepare for our unprecedented mission in the world."
Peter Bentley
"A good starting point for opening up the very relevant issue of where does spiritual formation fit within the evangelical church and the church at large."
