The Blackwell Companion to Christian Spirituality

  • By Arthur G. Holder, Arthur Holder
Christian spirituality has recently emerged as a distinct (and growing) academic field in universities, colleges, and theological schools. The Blackwell Companion to Christian Spirituality is a comprehensive single-volume introduction to the subject which takes a thoroughly interdisciplinary, broadly ecumenical approach. Like all volumes in the Blackwell Companions to Religion series, The Blackwell Companion to Christian Spirituality represents the most significant recent scholarship and knowledge in the field.Without attempting to impose a single definition of Christian spirituality upon its contributors, the Companion reflects an understanding of the field as the study of the lived experience of Christian faith and discipleship. The six parts of the volume deal with approaches to the study of Christian spirituality, biblical foundations, historical developments, theological perspectives, interdisciplinary dialogue partners, and selected special topics in contemporary Christian spirituality.This volume will be of interest to scholars in the field and in other related disciplines, to undergraduate and graduate students in theology and religious studies, and to Christians of all denominations who desire to learn more about the practice of faith.This is a rich and comprehensive resource not only for theologians but also for ordinands, parish priests and teachers.
