Product Description

Many discussions of Christian spirituality draw on a range of traditions and "disciplines". However, little attention appears to have been given to the Bible itself as a source of spirituality, or to its teaching on this theme. In response, Peter Adam urges us to renew our confidence in a biblical model of spirituality, and to test our spirituality by the Bible. Drawing on a selection of Old and New Testament texts, along with signifigant insights from the Christian tradition, he expounds the shape and structure of a gospel-centered "spirituality of the word", through which we receive the life that God gives, and know God himself.

Publisher's Description

Many discussions of Christian spirituality draw on a range of traditions and "disciplines." Little attention, however, appears to have been given to the Bible itself for its teaching on this theme or as a source of spirituality. Similarly, it is commonly assumed that, when it comes to spirituality, the evangelical tradition has little to offer. In response, Peter Adam urges us to renew our confidence in a biblical model of spirituality and to test our spirituality by the Bible. Drawing on a selection of Old and New Testament texts, along with significant insights from the Christian tradition (including John Calvin and the Puritans), he expounds the shape and structure of a gospel-centered "spirituality of the Word" through which we know God himself and receive the life he gives.

Adam is principal of Ridley College in Melbourne, Australia. He was formerly vicar of St. Jude's in nearby Carlton. His other books include

Editorial Reviews

"By appealing both to the Bible and to influential voices in the history of the church (notably John Calvin), Adam manages to combine biblical theology and historical theology in an admirable synthesis. His academic training, years of pastoral ministry and now principalship of a theological college ensure that this book simultaneously informs the mind, warms the heart and strengthens the will."
