Readers of this book will benefit from insights and findings culled from the body of work that constitutes the growing field of formative spirituality. The Spirit, having granted us undeservedly the knowledge provided by formation science, anthropology, and theology, may use these pages to initiate changes in our lives that will shed more light on the entire process of human and Christian maturation. The work begun here will continue to be enriched and expanded at the Epiphany Academy of Formative Spirituality. What we teach is tested in reality by our faculty members, students, and graduates, working in many different centers of research, teaching, and practice.
