Publisher's Description

A 1999 Academy of Parish Clergy Top Ten Book! Theology is "the doctrine of living unto God," wrote the Puritan theologian William Ames. Unfortunately, post-Enlightenment theology has tended to divorce "doctrine" from "living unto God." And to the degree that this split has been deepened and perpetuated, both theology and spirituality have been impoverished. Spiritual Theology is a rare book. In it, Simon Chan surveys the little-explored landscape where systematic theology and godly praxis meet, highlighting the connections between Christian doctrine and Christian living and drawing out the spiritual implications of particular aspects of systematic theology. Allowing rational formulations to drop into the background, he brings the mystery of the faith to the fore. Chan begins with the principal doctrines of God, sin, salvation and the church. He then progresses to a reflective consideration of the practice of the spiritual life, from prayer to spiritual direction. Unabashedly evangelical and truly ecumenical, Chan grounds his exploration in the sources of the Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox traditions. His work is well abreast of contemporary theological currents and crossculturally conversant from an Asian perspective. Spiritual Theology is a book for those who care deeply about theology and spirituality, and strive to integrate the two. It is well worth careful reflection and prayerful reading.

Reviews & Endorsements

I seldom have the experience of reading a book with the sense of holding a treasure in my hand. I did with this book. I urge every seminary teacher, administrator [and] student, and every pastor and Christian leader to seriously study this book. Chan brings the treasures of the church, historical and worldwide, to bear upon the needs of contemporary humanity, and especially on the desperate need of contemporary evangelicalism for an understanding of spiritual life in Christ."

¬óDallas Willard, University of Southern California

"If the renewed interest in spirituality is to be something more than a passing fad, we need to link it firmly to sound theological reflection. Simon Chan has done just that, showing us how theology can be an expression of a vibrant relationship with the living God."

¬óRichard Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary
