Synopsis: The term spirituality is often used ambiguously. Bookstores have sections dedicated to "spiritual texts," which include everything from tips for improving one's business acumen and marital communication to translations of ancient tantric poetry and primers on the discernment of spirits. Given this diversity, what does spirituality actually mean--especially for the Christian tradition?
In Christian Spirituality: Lived Expressions in the Life of the Church, Peter Feldmeier weaves together historical, theological, and experiential anecdotes and information to produce a portrait of the diverse spiritual traditions that have come to bear on Christianity through the lived witness of Christian believers. With instructive chapter introductions, review and discussion questions at the conclusion of each topic, a robust bibliography, and a straightforward chronological method, Christian Spirituality makes the diverse topic of spirituality at once comprehensive and accessible.

From the Back Cover: This well-crafted survey strikes me as a desirable volume to engage readers with the riches of the Christian spiritual tradition. Well written, adorned with user-friendly pedagogical aids, it is ideal for classroom use.

A visit to your local bookstore is sufficient to confirm the ambiguity of the term spirituality. Nearly every bookstore has a section dedicated to "spiritual texts," which inevitably includes everything from tips for improving one's business acumen and marital communication to translations of ancient tantric poetry and primers on the discernment of spirits.
Adding to the confusion is the popular claim of one's being "spiritual but not religious," which suggests a separation not only between institutional and personal beliefs, but also between individual and communal practice. But can spirituality exist without community?
More importantly, given all this diversity, what does spirituality actually mean--especially for the Christian tradition?
In Christian Spirituality: Lived Expressions in the Life of the Church, Peter Feldmeier weaves together historical, theological, and experiential anecdotes and information to produce a portrait of the diverse spiritual traditions that have come to bear on Christianity through the lived witness of Christian believers. With instructive chapter introductions, review and discussion questions at the conclusion of each topic, a robust bibliography, and a straightforward chronological method, Christian Spirituality makes the diverse topic of spirituality at once comprehensive and accessible.
Peter Feldmeier is the Murray/Bacik Professor of Catholic Studies at the University of Toledo.
