Endorsements

"Disciples of Jesus Christ who know the cost of discipleship, heirs of grace who treasure its costly gifts, and men and women of taste and scholarship and civil impulse have good reason for wishing the author luck. No, put that not 'luck' but 'steadfastness' and 'grace.'" —Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago

"We need a book like this at this time. Lovelace has done the job in a sensitive, insightful, readable way. His work deserves a readership far beyond the Evangelical tradition out of which it grows." —Mark J. Link, S.J., author of These Stones Will Shout and The Seventh Trumpet

"Here is more evidence of growing Evangelical concern with renewal, spirituality and the historic witness of Christianity. Dynamics of Spiritual Life is a major new contribution to our understanding of God's action in the church and in history. While writing from an essentially Reformed perspective, Lovelace remains open to other traditions, including contemporary Neo-Pentecostalism, and is sensitive to God's renewing action historically within Roman Catholicism as well as in Anabaptism, Pietism and other Protestant renewal movements." —Howard A. Snyder, author of The Problem of Wineskins and Liberating the Church

    Absolutely eye opening. The PREFACE STATES: 'This work is a manual of spiritual theology, a discipline combining the history and the theology of Christian experience,' and it is all it claims to be and more. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is rich in 'spiritual' and practical 'theology,' and helps one understand the past moves of God and the relationship of such to the present move and work of the Holy Spirit in this generation.
