Spirituality is a hot topic in today's culture. Spirituality is essentially how one's beliefs and experiences influence the way one lives their life. Such influences for living are of critical importance to one's faith within the Christian community. What role does the Bible play in developing an expressed spirituality among the Christian community? How do one's religious traditions, cultural influences, and personal preferences influence the way Christian spirituality is perceived and expressed? All too often, and at times unintentionally, the foundational truths of the Bible are subordinated to tradition, culture, and personal preference. This book provides a context for understanding Paul's foundational components for Christian spirituality within the book of Galatians while showing how an accurate understanding of these components can and should serve as a corrective lens to various aspects of Christian spirituality as expressed and experienced today.

The Gospel According to the Blues dares us to read Jesus's Sermon on the Mount in conversation with Robert Johnson, Son House, and Muddy Waters. It suggests that thinking about the blues--the history, the artists, the songs--provides good stimulation for thinking about the Christian gospel. Both are about a world gone wrong, about injustice, about the human condition, and both are about hope for a better world. In this book, Gary Burnett probes both the gospel and the history of the blues as we find it in the Sermon on the Mount, to help us understand better the nature of the good news which Jesus preached, and its relevance and challenge to us.

This engaging, highly readable biography of St. Paul is an introduction to his thought and the major events of his life. In short simple chapters, the book covers not only the facts of Paul's life known to us through Scripture, but also the fascinating legends told by the early church about this key figure in the development of Christianity. The book is illustrated throughout with four-color paintings highlighting Paul's tumultuous life. These arresting pictures blend the "naive style" of painting, which is strikingly similar to the teaching-style art of the eleventh century, with the artist's own deep love of quilting. The charming result evokes the tradition of the great icons, transforming the book from a simply wonderful introduction to Paul to a truly wonderful gift. Together, text and art combine to make this unique presentation of St. Paul's life a written and visual delight for everyone. Book jacket.
