Item Description...
Doing for God (and everyone else) sometimes leaves us with no energy to be for God; we may even feel guilty for taking time to pray. But to be of use to God in the world, it is necessary from time to time to withdraw from that world, and seek refreshment. In Beyond the Quiet Time, theologian Alister McGrath encourages harried believers to move beyond their hurried quiet times to a place where they can be spiritually renewed. The five studies contained within this small book help readers make their way toward that refreshment. They show how to quiet the heart and allow God's Word and Spirit to move. They can be used by individuals or a study group to renew fundamental beliefs and fervent faith. Withdrawing from the world, we need to bring only our imaginations, our intellects, and our beings to a place where we can be alone with the Lord. Alister McGrath lectures in Christian doctrine and ethics at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, and is a research lecturer in theology for Oxford University. He is author of numerous books, including The Journey, A Passion for Truth, and Intellectuals Don't Need God and Other Modern Myths

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Practical Pointers for a Direct Engagement with the Scriptures  Apr 19, 2008
In "Beyond the Quiet Time: Alister McGrath presents a refreshing approach to relating the vitality of the scriptures to personal Christian Living. McGrath helps the reader develop a plan which offers a new approach to spirituality.

The book encompasses both a devotional and a theological emphasis on reading, studying, and applying the Scriptures to daily life. The studies bring a new flavor to the "Quiet Time", offering spiritual nourishment, encouragement, and motivation to follow Christ.

The format of the book incorporates possibilities for use in a study group or for individual study. Each of the five chapters include: Narrative, introducing the theme of the chapter, a passage from the Bible, commentary with questions for consideration, a guided time of reflection, discussion points, a "Study Panel," and suggested exercises for meaningful life application.

McGrath writes with clarity as he demonstrates this devotional approach to the Scriptures. He defines spirituality, answers the question as to why it is important, what we can learn from the past, and how the Scripture gives guidance as it relates to everyday life.

The five chapters of the book provide the groundwork for future devotional study and cover the foundational tenets of the Gospel message setting the scene with relevant illustrations that give a contemporary setting for application. These chapters include the concept of being lost, the need and provision of rescue, relationship to the world, faith, and living life to the fullest.

"Beyond the Quiet Time" offers the reader a creative, imaginative way for finding freshness to enhancing their spirituality though a direct engagement with the Scriptures.

The Introduction Alone Is Worth Reading This Book  Jun 3, 2000
The Introduction of "Beyond the Quiet Time" is fascinating and if it were the alone part of the book that was any good then I would still have to rate the book a "4 out of 5". "Beyond the Quiet Time" takes modern approaches to Christian spirituality and explains them and makes them practical. Dr. McGrath as the ability to take the difficult and make it understandable. He has taken this ability and used it within the field of Christian Spirituality in order to help people experience God. The Introduction explains the importance of Christian Spirituality and the remaining 5 chapters of the book take you through 5 times of devotion. It is not often that one of the worlds prominent theologians "descends" to the world of personal devotion. I am thankful that Dr. McGrath did!
