IVP has kindly provided me with some great books to give away so we can celebrate the launch of the new blog design/domain. Thanks!
So every Thursday, I’m announcing a new book giveaway. And this week’s book is Rodney Reeves’ Spirituality According to Paul: Imitating the Apostle of Christ.
Spirituality often evokes images of quiet centeredness, meditative serenity and freedom from life’s pressures. It’s become a chic
commodity, with its benefits evoked by images of sunrises and secluded retreats.
Contrast the apostle Paul, who promotes a cross-shaped spirituality for fools making their way though life’s trials. Paul realized that images of crucifixion, burial and resurrection would never be popular images of the spiritual life. So he encourages his fellow travelers, who are spiritually united with Christ, to “follow me as I follow Christ.”
As he explores this ancient spiritual path, Rodney Reeves probes our understanding of what Christian spirituality should be. And to illuminate its transformative power, he gives us living illustrations of what it means to follow Paul as he followed Christ. Here is a book that joins a deep understanding of Paul with a pastoral and spiritual wisdom born of experience.
Entering is simple. Just do one or more of the following. And, as usual, the more of these you do, the better your chances of winning.
