Living Well gives you a fresh perspective on Christian spirituality in the twenty-first century – and a practical guide to deepening your relationship with God.
Why is encountering God different today? Why do we need a spirituality for the twenty-first century? Christians are different today because we bring our postmodern mindsets and knowledge with us, as we try to faithfully relate with and follow Jesus, amid a secular-scientific culture. We cope with the challenges of following God everyday by carving out special times in our busy lives – ‘God-time’ – to place ourselves in God’s presence, in prayer, in church, in service. But what about the rest of the time? How can we completely commit our ‘me-time’ to God?
Living Well gives readers a practical five step process for Everyday Spirituality.
It challenges readers to consider: Can we experience God’s presence in everyday life? What is that experience like? When we commit to follow Jesus, what does God ask of us, in practical terms? How can we deal with living in a secular society which denies the presence of the sacred? What are we asked to do, every day, to transform our world? Living Well relates spirituality to the average Christian’s life. As one reader said, ‘I particularly liked the examples from your life. They illustrate what you’re talking about and help trigger memories of the reader’s own experiences.’
