An Outline of New Testament Spirituality
In this compact book Prosper Grech provides an overview of the various elements of spirituality present in the New Testament. Grech, an Augustinian Father, defines "spirituality" not in a New Age sense but rather as "the full response in the life of a believer to God's offer of salvation in Christ." He outlines key spiritual themes of early Christian belief drawn from Genesis, the Psalms, the Synoptic Gospels, Paul's epistles, the letter to the Hebrews, and the Johannine Gospel, letters, and apocalypse -- all crucial documents in the life of the New Testament churches. Drawing these various theological strands together, Grech crafts a complex portrait of a dynamic yet contemplative Christian spirituality -- a spirituality that not only saturated the New Testament church but continues to animate Christian life today.
