"The profound spiritual counsel of Gerhard Tersteegen is presented in this volume of short selections from one hundred of his letters, as well as seventeen of his hymns. His emphasis on heartfelt religious devotion, ethical purity, and charitable activity greatly influenced the development of various Protestant denominations and was a powerful contributor to their spiritual awakening."--BOOK JACKET.

This unique anthology of Christian spirituality draws on the experiences and reflections of six contemporary writers. From the perspective of the late twentieth century, and from very different Christian traditions, they explore our relationship with God and with one another. Each selection begins with a brief outline biography and includes excerpts that confront a rich variety of themes: from vital social and colitical issues to experiences of great personal joy and pain. The authors include Helen Oppenheimer, Janet Martin Soskice, Margaret Spufford, Carlo-Maria Martini, Jacques Pohier and Kenneth Leech.
"What would Jesus do?" That’s the primary question Thomas à Kempis answers in his universally acclaimed work, The Imitation of Christ. In 114 short chapters organized into four simple parts, this handbook on the spiritual life offers guidance on dozens of topics such as resisting temptation, avoiding hasty judgments, putting up with others’ faults, remembering God’s many blessings, self-surrender, minding our own business, and performing humble works. William Creasy succeeds in creating a dramatically different interpretation of The Imitation of Christ by working through its historical, cultural, and linguistic contexts. This book inspired the likes of St. Thomas More, St. Ignatius of Loyola, Thérèse of Lisieux, Dorothy Day, and Thomas Merton. Along with such classics as Augustine’s Confessions, Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle, and Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises, The Imitation of Christ continues to confront each generation of readers with the perennial truths of the Gospel.
This classic of world spiritual literature is the firsthand account of a pilgrim's journey as he endeavors to live out Saint Paul's instruction to "pray without ceasing." The narrator, an unnamed nineteenth-century peasant, sets out on his pilgrimage with nothing but a Bible, a rosary, and some dried bread. As he walks, he recites the Jesus prayer ("Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me")—a prayer that is said to quiet anxiety and fill the heart with love for all creation. With this prayer constantly on his lips, the pilgrim undergoes a profound spiritual education. This edition includes the sequel to The Way of a Pilgrim, entitled A Pilgrim Continues His Way, which contains a lengthy appendix reviewing the teachings of the Holy Fathers on the Jesus prayer.
