Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Spirituality: God's Presence Through the Ages?
Well done! Feb 24, 2007
This book is a succinct but well balanced overview of the history of the Christian spirituality. Especially I appreciate the author's perspective, which is the presence of God found in history. This perspective keeps reminding us of the central issue of Christian spirituality and our personal lives today: the presence of God. You won't regret spending time on it.
