Item description for Spirituality of Struggle: Pathways to Growth by Andrew Mayes...
Many of us feel that our faith is not as strong and confident as it should be. All too often we struggle and blame ourselves for not doing better. But, in fact, there is a danger of oversimplifying the path to faith and growth. When we turn to the Bible, we see that many characters struggle with God. Jacob struggles with the issue of his identity; Ruth struggles to come to terms with change; Elijah struggles with stress; Mary with her vocation; Paul simply with human nature!
Drawing on the insights of some of the great spiritual writers, Andrew D. Mayes offers encouragement and hope as he seeks to build a 'spirituality of struggle.' He points out that the struggles that seem to make up such a large part of our Christian lives can be the very way we find God. They can help us to work out a mature and reflective faith.
With discussion questions to stimulate individual reflection or group discussion and a range of prayer exercises, this beautifully written book opens up new pathways to growth.
