Item Description...
Overview
This accessible and engaging history provides an excellent primer on the two-millennium quest for union with God, a "thirst" at the center of Christian life and practice. Holt traces the practice of Christian devotion, prayer, and contemplation from the biblical and influential early periods through the diverse insights of the Reformation and modern eras. Globally framed, the book also highlights the contributions of women and people of color. This new edition not only updates all the chapters and features but also adds more material on the spirituality of Jesus, medieval women mystics, and contemporary spirituality. Short excerpts from primary sources, a glossary, a timeline, a bibliography, and a set of spiritual exercises heighten the book's usefulness for students and lay persons alike.

A Delightful Overview of Christian Spirituality.  Feb 1, 2002
In this paperback of 150 pages Bradley Holt, professor of Religion at Augsburg College, Minneapolis provides a brief and clear overview of Christian spirituality through the centuries. It is written in a textbook style without any theological jargon or presumption of previous knowledge. Since it is intended for college students each chapter includes discussion questions, exercises, aids for exercises and a list of suggested readings. The book also provides at the end a glossary of difficult words, end notes of each chapter, a common bibliography, an index of names and another of subjects.

It is written in an ecumenical style without any prejudice against any denomination or sect of Christianity. The book is multicultural in the sense that it includes the approaches to spirituality in various cultures outside the West, namely Africa, Latin America and Asia. Just like the people of color, the women too get a good representation in the book. A delightful book of this sort was long overdue.
