Item Description...
Overview
This modern classic provides the most concise overview available of all the key concepts and people who have shaped the Eastern and Western Christian spiritual heritage. It stands above the field today, as it did when the author first saw a critical need for it more than twenty years ago. Now, this readable and authoritative introduction to Christian spirituality can be used and enjoyed by a new generation of readers and students. Holmes proceeds from the Jewish antecedents through the New Testament period, monasticism, the Middle Ages, Byzantine spirituality, and the modern period. He closes with key contemporary figures such as Simone Weil, Thomas merton, and Martin Luther King, Jr. This book is a fascinating reading and an invaluable reference tool for those who want a quick explanation of the significance of a person or idea, or who are interested ina broad overview of the entire field

Publishers Description
This modern classic explores the key concepts and people who have shaped our Christian spiritual heritage. At the time it was first published, the author wrote, "This book is the result of finding nothing to recommend to my students as an introduction to the wide variety and great richness of the Christian spiritual experience. The texts available are either too detailed, too unbalanced, or both." This situation remains the same today, more than twenty years later. Now this concise and very readable introduction to Christian spirituality is available for a new generation of readers. Holmes begins with the Jewish antecedents, and proceeds through the New Testament period, monasticism, the Middle Ages, Byzantine spirituality, and the modern period. He ends his overview with key contemporary figures such as Simone Weil, Thomas Merton, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Brief bibliographies of the books written by each notable figure are included for those who wish to read more extensively. A History of Christian Spirituality is the perfect book for introductory classes at the M. Div. level, for diaconate programs, lay people or parish study classes of all Christian denominations, and for any reference collection. This is a unique and invaluable learning tool and reference for readers, students, or teachers who want a quick explanation of the significance of a person or idea, or who are interested in a broad overview of the entire field.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Introduction is worth the price of the book  Jan 17, 2006
This work is a collection of spiritual biorgaphies and Urban T Holmes analyzes the spiritual approaches of great Christian thinkers, looking specifically at different spiritual approaches.

The introduction is fantastic. Holmes looks at the ways that people approach God on a matrix. In crude terms less technical than those used by Holmes, he contrasts a head approach with a heart approach, and a focus on the revealed things about God and a focus on the unknown mystery of God. It is really a great study of spirituality.
