TheologyC. S. Lewis once wrote of The Imitation of Christ that ‘it is not addressed to our condition.’ It suggests, for example, that scholars and writers hide themselves in the study when they should be helping in the kitchen. . . . The main thrust of this book is addressed directly to our condition. It is concerned with how we may live in the presence of God, and grow in the spiritual life. . . .
“The author draws on the whole sweep of theology and spirituality throughout the ages, and makes substantial connections between, for example, Calvin’s Institutes and the life of prayer, Gregory of Nyssa and the goal of Christian spirituality, and Iris Murdoch and moral awareness.
“The book is accessible in the best sense, not patronizing or simplistic, but clear, well illustrated, and free from theological jargon. It is a good and useful book which will take a thoughtful reader into the rich tradition of theological spirituality.
