Finding Our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices by Brian McLaren

February 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Brian McLaren does an excellent job providing an overview of the theory and foundations of ancient Christian spiritual practices.

His treatment of katharsis (via purgativa), fotosis (via illuminativa), and theosis (via unitiva) is especially enlightening.

However, this book serves as the introduction to seven others. I prefer the author’s original work to this creative implementation of the series editor’s outline.

Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an unbiased review.

Urgent Needs

Paul writes, in verses 14-15, that people should do good so that they can provide for people’s urgent needs.

This is as good a reason as any to work hard.
