Christian Spirituality : Lived Expressions in the Life of the Church (Paperback) (Peter Feldmeier)
about this item
The term spirituality is often used ambiguously. Bookstores have sections dedicated to "spiritual texts," which include everything from tips for improving one's business acumen and marital communication to translations of ancient tantric poetry and primers on the discernment of spirits. Given this diversity, what does spirituality actually mean--especially for the Christian tradition?In Christian Spirituality: Lived Expressions in the Life of the Church, Peter Feldmeier weaves together historical, theological, and experiential anecdotes and information to produce a portrait of the diverse spiritual traditions that have come to bear on Christianity through the lived witness of Christian believers. With instructive chapter introductions, review and discussion questions at the conclusion of each topic, a robust bibliography, and a straightforward chronological method, Christian Spirituality makes the diverse topic of spirituality at once comprehensive and accessible.
