9780877846260: Dynamics of Spiritual Life: An Evangelical Theology of Renewal

Richard Lovelace gives a history of spiritual renewals in light of biblical models. Isolating the elements of live orthodoxy, he proposes a comprehensive approach to renewal. Lovelace looks at such practical issues as renewal of the local congregation, the ways revivals go wrong, the evangelical thrust toward church unity, and Christian approaches to the arts and to social concern. A book for all concerned to revitalize the church.

About the Author:

Richard F. Lovelace (Th.D., Princeton) is emeritus professor of church history at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and the author of Homosexuality and the Church (Revell) and The American Pietism of Cotton Mather (Eerdmans).

Review:

"Why is Lovelace's writing a must-read? It's a madly efficient use of your mental and spiritual energy. For pastors, church planters, missional leaders, and thinking Christians, the benefits of this book will be well worth the effort." (Coram Deo (cdomaha.com/blog), July 22, 2008)

"Here is more evidence of growing Evangelical concern with renewal, spirituality and the historic witness of Christianity. Dynamics of Spiritual Life is a major new contribution to our understanding of God's action in the church and in history. While writing from an essentially Reformed perspective, Lovelace remains open to other traditions, including contemporary Neo-Pentecostalism, and is sensitive to God's renewing action historically within Roman Catholicism as well as in Anabaptism, Pietism and other Protestant renewal movements." (Howard A. Snyder, author of The Problem of Wineskins and Liberating the Church)

"We need a book like this at this time. Lovelace has done the job in a sensitive, insightful, readable way. His work deserves a readership far beyond the Evangelical tradition out of which it grows." (Mark J. Link, S.J., author of These Stones Will Shout and The Seventh Trumpet)

"Disciples of Jesus Christ who know the cost of discipleship, heirs of grace who treasure its costly gifts, and men and women of taste and scholarship and civil impulse have good reason for wishing the author luck. No, put that not 'luck' but 'steadfastness' and 'grace.'" (Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago)
