Product Description

In The Divine Embrace, part of his Ancient-Future series, Webber lays the foundation for understanding Christian spirituality by tracing it from the ancient church to the present, showing how biblical teaching has been developed theologically and informed by changes in culture. He then explores how we can return contemporary spirituality to its biblical source, living out God's story in our individual lives and in our life together as the church. You'll be encouraged and equipped to live out your spirituality as a deeper and more delightful response to God's divine embrace.

    Bob was initially known for his writings in the area of worship; but, later began to share a profound capacity to see the Body of Christ in larger context. In this book he provides the really big picture. On a personal note, he was one of the most intellectually stimulating and simultaneously spiritual persons that I have ever encountered. Unfortunately, Bob passed away in 2007, contrary to the bio information.

    For all those Evangelicals that have longed for spiritual roots, this is the book. This book has an excellent historical lead in, covering Christian spirituality over the centuries, noting both strengths and weaknesses. Webber's overall thrust seems to be a genuine concern that the modern church has lost its bearings by examining the Bible via Enlightenment thinking. He points out in layman's terms the significant epistemological changes over the centuries, and how the rational scientific method of interpretation, commonly taught in seminaries and fundamentalist/evangelical churches, has failed to capture the narrative (story) of God. Christians are busy telling THEIR story rather than God's story. Songs and sermons revolve around me feeling good, what's in it for me, and not surprisingly, looking like our self-consumed culture.If you desire to be challenged in your epistemology, would like a good exposition on historical Christian spirituality, and long for something more that is rooted in the Word and "the faith of our fathers," this is an excellent resource. Webber was a gifted theologian, scholar, and spiritual guide.
