Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Spirituality: A Program of Study and Prayer Based on St. Matthew's Gospel?

Spiritually Nourishing  Dec 6, 2008
Christian Spirituality is a fine companion to the Gospel according to St. Matthew. Doctor Lang's treatment of every section of the gospel by inviting the reader to "Enter into the Narrative" is a challenge to any director of Ignatian retreats. Evident familiarity with the culture and geography of the Holy Land enhances unique spiritual insights. A special contribution is the relating of psychological concepts of modern scholarship to the gospel. Every chapter concludes with suggestions for "Responding to the Narrative' in thought and prayer. Certainly Christian Spirituality is spiritually nourishing. Martha & David Kammer
 
A great spiritual assist  Nov 24, 2008
Christian Spirituality provides meditations on Matthew's Gospels, and complements Martin Lang's other books on the Scriptures. I like how the book provides for each passage both a description of the religious and social context and insights into the psychological dimension of the individuals involved. The author's responses to the narrative are typically insightful and meditative. I have used it as a personal aid to Gospel each Sunday, and for my group's spiritual prayer services.
 
ENRICH YOUR SPIRITUALITY!  Nov 23, 2008
Christian Spiritualy represents brillant scholarship while affording the ordinary lay person an opportunity to explore the Gospel of Matthew with great ease. The format of each chapter is most helpful. Although, it follows the Liturgical year, each chapter stands alone and can be studied independently.
Study groups, prayer groupc, as well as the individual can greatly benefit Martin Lang's exquisite work.
