Abstract:

"Spiritual Theology is a rare book, surveying the little-explored landscape where systematic theology and godly praxis meet, highlighting the connections between Christian doctrine and Christian living. It draws out the spiritual implications of particular aspects of systematic theology, allowing formulas to drop into the background and bringing the mystery of the faith to the fore." "Spiritual Theology achieves all of this while remaining unabashedly evangelical and truly ecumenical. It is firmly grounded in the sources of the Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox traditions, well abreast of contemporary theological currents and crossculturally conversant from an Asian perspective."--Jacket.
