Product Description

There is an increased interest in spirituality in our world--lately, people have a deep hunger and thirst towards something that transcends them.
In Spiritual Formation, Maddix and LeClerc provide a definition of Christian spiritual formation within the Wesleyan paradigm and how faithful disciples can grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. In simple terms, this book explains that Spiritual formation refers to the transformation of people into, what C.S. Lewis calls, "little Christs." The book focuses on how people can grow in Christlikeness by participating in reading of Scripture, the "means of grace," the sacraments, and spiritual disciplines. It also provides guidance in matter of self care, spiritual direction, and mentoring, while displaying practical guidelines for adolescents, families, and college students.
