Thomas turns to the classic writings of well-known Christians to offer a program for rediscovering an authentic Christian spirituality that applies to everyday life's frustrations, problems, and even joys. "Many will be grateful for the forceful sensitivity of this survey of classical insights into our fellowship with God."--J.I. Packer.

Thomas (Sacred Pathways) offers readers a simple method for fostering greater devotion to God. He uses excerpts from Christian spiritual classics, by authors ranging from Augustine, Pascal and Fenelon, as springboards into topics such as the journey of faith, setting spiritual goals, cultivating simplicity and spiritual gluttony. Thomas explains in seven steps how one can train both body and soul to draw closer to God. Seekers should invest time studying the writings of godly men and women of the past, learn to imitate contemporary models of holiness, cultivate godly character virtues, use bodily discomfort as a way to free the soul, rise early to begin each day with God and live life reflectively. Hoping to inspire and guide readers in their journey, Thomas lists his favorite authors' works in an appendix. Like a fine wine, Thomas's practical guide must be savored slowly to appreciate its fullness and flavor.
