Description

This course provides an accessible but substantive introduction to Christian spirituality. This is understood to be about living all of life before God in the transforming and empowering presence of God's Spirit. Important concepts and terminology are clarified, biblical foundations explored, and the subsequent historical traditions sketched in broad strokes. On this foundation the essential dynamics of Christian spirituality are then developed. The course provides a discerning orientation to the wealth of ecumenical resources and insights available today while still highlighting the distinct heritage and core grace-centered values of classic evangelical spirituality. It concludes with practical wisdom for living our lives with disciplined intent. The course content can be conveniently adapted for teaching and formational purposes in congregational settings. Lectures include:

  • An Introduction and Historical Overview
  • The Relational Dynamic
  • The Transformational Dynamic
  • The Vocational Dynamic
  • Living with Disciplined Intent
