Editorial Reviews

"This book ably and accurately provides information that will helpthose unfamiliar with the Christian tradition to engage withclassical texts on spirituality." Amy M. Hollywood, Professor ofReligion, Dartmouth College, NewHampshire<!--end-->

"This study really is an 'introduction' and is well suited tothe needs of undergraduate students in universities, theologicalcolleges, and seminaries. The book will also be useful for adulteducation courses, and will appeal in addition to a more generalreadership. There is a need for a reliable, basic, introductorytextbook like this that doesn't make too many assumptions about itsreaders." Philip Sheldrake, Vice-Principal, Sarum College,Salisbury

"I am sure that this book will have a wide readership,particularly among theologians and students of theology. It shouldalso have a wider readership among Christians more generally.Existing works of spirituality often have limited scope and makeassumptions about their readers' knowledge. The author's concern tofill gaps and provide adequate explanations and contexts isadmirable." Robert Swanson, Reader in Medieval History,University of Birmingham

"[The book's] considerable advantage in accessibility and in thestructured ordering of ideas makes it ideal as an undergraduatetextbook or a committed interest-reader's introduction. It includesfrequent invitations and injunctions to read and explore moredeeply. The book is written with superb clarity and veryconsiderable breadth of reference...As a working textbook, this haseverything one could wish for: interaction with the reader in theform of suggested tasks and internal cross-references; goodmanagement of the interrelationship with theology and clarificationof terms; window-box texts; a glossary; a list of websites. Foruniversity courses and libraries this is a must. For enquirers itis a scholarly and accessible guide." International Journal ofChildren's Spirituality

"This book is highly recommended as a college or seminarytextbook on the spiritual life or sanctification. In addition,anyone interested in delving into the tradition of Christianspirituality will find this a useful guide." BibliothecaSacra
