It has become commonplace in contemporary culture to divorce spirituality from religion and regard the two as separate, competing entities. Yet Prosper Grech, an Augustinian father and professor of early Christian literature, recognizes no such distinction. The Christian religion, he finds, is infused with spirituality—which he defines not in a New Age sense but rather as the believer's full response to God's offer of salvation in Christ." In this book, Grech presents the essential spiritual themes of Christian belief for meditation by any who seek to live out their Christian faith in its fullness.
Those who love the word of God and especially those who have a fair degree of familiarity with it will relish this book.
A rich and illuminating interpretation of the biblical vision.
A well-written, easy to read book on living out Christ's call. I welcome it to a permanent place on my bookshelf.
