Item description for Faith's Freedom: A Classic Spirituality for Contemporary Christians by Luke Timothy Johnson...
Overview Faith's Freedom is a refreshingly personal synthesis of key spiritual concepts written in a truly ecumenical way for the contemporary situation. By avoiding most technical terminology, it formulates for intelligent readers an outlook on God and the world that expresses many foundational insights of classic spirituality in terms understandable to the modern mindset. It translates basic notions like creation, freedom, revelation, sin, and faith into contemporary language, then applies them to prayer, power, possessions, anger, sexuality, evil, and life in the Spirit.
