Item description for Grace That Frees: The Lutheran Tradition (Traditions in Christian Spirituality Series) by Bradley Hanson & Philip Sheldrake...

Some consider the idea of "Lutheran spirituality" an oxymoron-a species of "works righteousness." It is not so much based on techniques or specific practices, but on an attitude of trust and faith in God's grace. In relationship with Christ the believer is free from the never-ending quest to earn good standing with God, and at the same time free for service to God and others.

Reviews - What do customers think about Grace That Frees: The Lutheran Tradition (Traditions in Christian Spirituality Series)?

A spirituality of the head  Mar 2, 2006
The author does a decent job of explaining a spirituality that is lifeless and spiritless. My own experience with the Lutheran service, eg., is one lacking a spontenaity and freshness that would appeal to younger adults and bring life into a slowly dying denomination.

This book helps to explain in form and tone the head over heart lackluster, over intelectual roots of this orientation in Luther's abhorrence of works.

The book explores a spirituality without any spirit, a tradition that sees works, including spriitual exercises, meant to help one feel the presence of God, as anathema. Religious experiences and symbols meant to connect the personal with the transpersonal, the ordinary with the transcendent are shyed away from as egocentric efforts to gain grace through our own efforts.
