have we North American Christians lost our way? have we made Christianity about conservative politics, not watching R-rated films, and not listening to rock and roll music?
to a certain extent i think we have. we need to get back on track. we need to find our way again.
enter Finding Our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices, written by Brian McLaren. the text is the introductory book to The Ancient Practices Series from Thomas Nelson Publishers.
author Phyllis Tickle serves as the General Editor of the series and writes a forward for each volume. (i’ve previously blogged about The Sacred Meal and The Liturgical Year, volumes six and seven in the series).
the book is wonderful. McLaren sets the table for the volumes to come in the series and introduces readers to a world of the ancient practices making sense today.
book stores and book shelves are filled with self-help books, books that claim to be spiritual, and manuals for living. Finding Our Way Again is a book that looks at rich and deep practices for a rich and deep spiritual life.
the spiritual life is a journey. at times we need to find our way again.
Brian McLaren’s contribution to The Ancient Practices Series and the other books i’ve read from the series are a help along the way.
