Richard Foster has helpfully identified six great streams (contemplative, holiness, charismatic, social justice, evangelical, and incarnational) flowing through the life of Jesus and the spirituality of the Christian church. In this course, we will explore the ways in which these streams relate to one another, impact spiritual formation, and foster the possibility of real transformation.

A: Introductions; Syllabus Overview; Spiritual Formation and its Trinitarian Basis

B: Introduction to the Streams; The Contemplative Tradition; The Holiness Tradition

C: The Charismatic Tradition; The Social Justice Tradition

D: The Evangelical Tradition; The Incarnational Tradition

E: Integrating the Streams and Crafting a Rule of Life
