Hearing God's Words: Exploring Biblical Spirituality (New Studies in Biblical Theology)

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), this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume 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. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

Adam, formerly principal of Ridley College in Melbourne, Australia, is emeritus 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."

    I was throughly impressed and spiritually fed. This is not material for the casual reader...there is so much meat and substance buried beneath the words spoken by the author. I have ordered other books from this series and as a pastor, find them rich in theology and spiritual food and insight. GREAT MATERIAL---all biblically based and spiritual sound!
