The concern of this series is the formative nature of Christian Spirituality. By emphasizing the historical perspective Dr. Houston indicates how the traditions and practice of devotion, throughout the history of the Church, have been influenced by cultural changes, as well as by the faith of its adherents. The listener is challenged to understand one of the major traditions in more depth with the goal of greater self-understanding and a more mature spiritual response to living the Christian Life today. Lectures include:

  • Spirituality and Modernity
  • The Crisis of Evangelicalism Today
  • Contemporary Spiritualities
  • Biblical Spirituality
  • New Testament Spirituality
  • Witness and Martyrdom in the Early Church
  • Desert Fathers
  • "Garden" Spirituality
