Notes:

by kmcrouch (WorldCat user on 2008-09-29)

This is a helpful resource on a very broad topic that is of significant interest to pastors and theologians. The introduction contains essays by various authors on a number of different aspects of Christian spirituality (such as spirituality and culture, spirituality and science, spirituality and theology, etc.). Helpful features include brief bibliographies appended to the articles, and a substantial index.
