Out of Formation: Spiritual disciplines of God and men deals with the re-introduction of ancient practices to the modern church. The essence of the book is that God has ordained certain disciplines for our spiritual maturity but men have added their own, not unlike the Pharisees of Jesus day. The believer needs to discern the difference and live according to God's ordained means. Ancient disciplines, most often practiced within the monastic movement in the early centuries of Christianity, have been dusted off, repacked, and resubmitted to believers as the means whereby spiritual growth is obtained. There is increasing discussion about fasting, journaling, pilgrimage, simplicity, solitude, silence, contemplative prayer, and spiritual direction in Christian literature. What can be learned from this renewed interest in spiritual formation, and what are the dangers? Part One of this volume has been written to interact with the history, teachings and dangers of the Spiritual Formation Movement. Part Two turns to the biblical alternatives for spiritual formation. It examines the means, or disciplines, which the Word of God clearly identify as ways God has designed for His people to be transformed into Christ-likeness, and to experience intimacy with Him.

Book Description EVANGELICAL PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Spiritual disciplines of God and Men deals with the re-introduction of ancient practices to the modern church. Spiritual Formation will not be a term that is familiar to everyone, but most Christians will be aware of the effects of it and many will have experienced at least some aspects of it, perhaps through the writings of men like Richard Foster and Dallas Willard. Ancient mystical books and practices are being revived to feed the 21st century need for substantial roots to faith. This is no flash in the pan or passing fad: the movement has grown in power and influence over the last forty years and seminaries and other influential authorities are promoting it. The great question is, are these things in harmony with the Word of God? Dr Gilley examines the movement and those leading it and issues this direct challenge: Do we, as believers in sola Scriptura, take our marching orders from the written Word, or do we look to the white spaces in Scripture to determine how we live? Do we actually believe that the Lord has given us in Scripture the teachings and practices He wants us to follow, or do we believe that we must supplement the authentic words of God with our imagination and traditions of men? This vital book is one that all serious Christians need to read. Seller Inventory # AAC9781783970414
