Item Description...
Overview
Explores how the New Testament theme of baptismal spirituality is being recovered in our time.

Publishers Description
One of the most popular current views on spirituality is that there are varied paths to God. In this new Ancient-Future series book, Bob Webber evaluates this common misunderstanding of spirituality as separated from God's story, extremely self-focused, and shaped by our surrounding culture. This challenging work offers a corrective, calling us to an alternative Christian spirituality, one that reveals two sides-that of God's "divine embrace" of us and our passionate response. "The Divine Embrace" is a fresh, grounded look at true spirituality that will be embraced by pastors, thinking Christians, and anyone looking for an engaging and thorough treatment of this topic.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Timeliness of Timeless Truth  Mar 23, 2007
The Divine Embrace is part of an ever-growing series of books by Webber under the rubric of "ancient-future." By ancient-future, Webber refers to his passion for seeing the timeliness of God's timeless truth found in Scripture and Church history.

The current work focuses upon the history of Christian spirituality. Webber takes the approach of attempting to synthesize various movements into one consensual whole. His fusion results in a balanced approach to spiritual care.

One might wish for less demeaning of all the past traditions, as Webber has the tendency to denigrate the weaknesses of ancient approaches when compared to his modern synthesis. This contrasts with recent works by Richard Foster and his Renovare team which appreciate the uniqueness of each ancient approach and encourage believers to practice aspects of each. Aside from this, Webber has done his readers, the Christian community, and specialists in spirituality a great service by his research into the ancient paths.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," and "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
