Item Description...
Often spirituality today is isolated from church teaching and doctrine, as in Joseph Campbell s treatment of myth and the many forms of New Age theologies, but doctrine apart from the life of prayer is abstract and sterile. In Spiritual Theology Allen turns to the great teachers of the past the church fathers, Augustine, Maximus the Confessor, Bonaventure, Hugh of St. Victor, Calvin and Luther, George Herbert to recover a spirituality that is rich with the doctrines and disciplines of theology. Allen covers the great questions of the spiritual life: what is the Christian goal? what leads us toward that goal, and what hinders us? what is conversion? how can we discern our progress in the spiritual life? what are the fruits of the Spirit? A second purpose of the book is to introduce readers to the disciplines and texts of the threefold way, found in the eastern church from the fourth century on. Allen writes simply and clearly of the active life and the development of virtue, and the contemplative life, which includes coming to know God through the Book of Nature and the Book of Scripture as well as directly, face to face, which is the domain of mystical theology. This book is a basic and accessible introduction to the classic writings and doctrines of the spiritual life."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
What would it be like to live every moment of one's life with an awareness of God?  Jun 5, 2007
With this question, Diogenes Allen began his search into the depths of Christian spirituality. What he found resulted in a brief but very powerful overview of the history of spiritual theology. Allen probes the insights of the Bible and such spiritual masters as St. Anthony and the desert fathers, Augustine, Basil the Great, Bonaventure, Cassian, Evagrius, Francis of Assissi, Gregory of Nyssa, George Herbert, Julian of Norwich, Maximus the Confessor, Teresa of Avila, and Simone Weil. Perhaps the best concise spiritual theology written, tying ancient wisdom to the needs of today.
