The diversity of my students has led me to explore with them a variety of writers and writings on spiritual formation: from the desert fathers to Augustine to Medieval mystics and classic reformers, as well to more modern writers like Evelyn Underhill, Richard Foster, and John Ortberg.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? An appreciation for the Jewish context of Jesus' understanding of spiritual formation, a grasp of the life and teachings of Jesus, all through the lens of how Jesus modified the Shema (Hear O Israel...).
