Product Description

Kyle David Bennett, in Practices of Love, offers a framework to help synthesize and shed new light on spiritual disciplines that often seem strange and disconnected. We frequently view spiritual disciplines as a means to deepen our relationship with our Creator; however, Bennett proposes that these disciplines ultimately relate to our original calling as human beings, integrating every aspect of our Christian life into the relationships we have not only with God but also his entire creation. Bennett's personal stories, engagement with Scripture, and vivid cultural references help present the disciplines in a practical and relevant way, showing their holistic nature and transformational reality.

Publisher's Description

Spiritual disciplines are often viewed primarily as a means to draw us closer to God. While these practices do deepen and enrich our "vertical" relationship with God, Kyle David Bennett argues that they were originally designed to positively impact our "horizontal" relationships--with neighbors, strangers, enemies, friends, family, animals, and even the earth. Bennett explains that this "horizontal" dimension has often been overlooked or forgotten in contemporary discussions of the spiritual disciplines.

This book offers an alternative way of understanding the classic spiritual disciplines that makes them relevant, doable, and meaningful for everyday Christians. Bennett shows how the disciplines are remedial practices that correct the malformed ways we do everyday things, such as think, eat, talk, own, work, and rest. Through personal anecdotes, engagement with Scripture, and vivid cultural references, he invites us to practice the spiritual disciplines wholesale and shows how changing the way we do basic human activities can bring healing, renewal, and transformation to our day-to-day lives and the world around us.
