There is a growing interest today in the context and history of Christian spirituality. In this book a team of expert authors from the East and West present a full and fascinating picture of humanity’s desire for the divine across the centuries. Highlighting the contribution of significant figures through history, authors explore the ways in which Christians – from the earliest times onwards – have sought to express and live out the deepest truth of their faith.

The Bible and the life of Jesus Christ are the starting point for the story. The reader is then guided through the development of spirituality, starting an exploration of the significance of the early church ‘fathers’, and culminating in a survey of the explosion of expressions of Christian divinity across the world in the twentieth century.

Interspersed with boxed features that provide more detail on key individuals and groups, and timelines that put events into their chronological contexts, Christian Spirituality is an ideal overview for scholars and interested readers alike.    

The Rt. Revd Gordon Mursell is the former Bishop of Stafford, and former Dean of Birmingham Cathedral. He now lives in south-west Scotland where he continues to write on Christian spirituality.
