Zaspel. Since the time of Christ, the
church has known men and women renowned
for their devotion, spiritual insight
and piety. Collectively their lives
portray a broad history of Christian
spirituality. This volume is meant to
ignite your interest and understanding
of key time periods and pivotal people
from various eras of church history.
Instead of exploring the overall
spiritual perspective of a person or
period, only certain aspects of thought
are dealt with. This is an approach to
church history with an eye to issues of
spirituality that emphasizes how
today's Christians can cull ancient
sources for their spiritual enrichment
and encouragement as they seek to live
their lives under the direction of the
Holy Spirit. Each of the exceptional
contributors is knowledgeable in their
particular subject area. Through
extensive original research they
skillfully expound the vitality and
richness of the spirituality of their
subjects. Introduced to these
historical figures who walked closely
with God, Christians will find rich
application and benefit for their
souls. May this book stir up many more
men and women to pursue intimate
communion and fellowship with God,
turning from all that distracts and
devoting heart and soul to loving God
and living for his glory and the spread
of the kingdom of Jesus Christ.
