Synopsis: Chris Heuertz believes that any true path to spiritual sight ought to be simple. While he's not a contemplative and hardly a mystic, Chris has found, in the Bible and in his work with impoverished people, evidence of a simple spirituality. This way of humility, community, simplicity, submission and brokenness will help you see--no matter how dark things get.
From the Author:
Why did you write Simple Spirituality?
"The book is a reflection of my own spiritual journey. I wrote it to remember the simple touch points that have helped cultivate my faith. It's a confession that I have not arrived at but am still working towards. It's a prayer for courage to not lose hope and give up, especially in a world where there's reason for such hopelessness. It's also a testament to the central role that community has played in my spiritual formation as it's been lived out vocationally. And it's the story of God opening my eyes to the surprising gifts among pain and suffering in some of the most unlikely places in the world."
How is simplicity a spiritual discipline?
"Rather than trying to fit our spirituality into complex religious practices, we can look to Christ. He kept it simple. He taught lessons even children could understand. And He used everyday illustrations to explain the mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God--which we tend to complicate and reserve for the religiously astute."
What can this book say to the church?
This book laments how trendy Christianity has insulated and isolated itself far from those who are poor. This book offers an alternative expression of Christian formation, one that is drawn from Scripture and lessons God has enlivened for me through many friendships around the world."
What is the one thing you'd want readers to come away with?
"My hope is that the reader would feel like spirituality is something accessible to everybody. You don't have to be a mystic or an aesthetic to be spiritual. But that you could find, in the everyday, ways to practice your faith."
