Shaped by the Word: by M. Robert Mulholland Jr.
Author: M. Robert Mulholland Jr.
|The Power of Scripture in Spiritual Formation|
Many people buy and read the Bible for the sake of gaining information, Robert Mulholland believes that people can read the Bible not only for information, but for formation. In this completely revised version of an Upper Room best-selling classic, Mulholland invites readers to embrace scripture in a new and more fulfilling way, letting the biblical text form our spiritual life. Mulholland's biggest hope is that people will begin to open themselves so they may regularly encounter God in reading the Bible.
Dr. Mulholland examines the obstacles often encountered in spiritual reading. These obstacles include the attitudes that we bring to reading the Bible -- our view of self, our view of the Bible, our relationships with others. As Mulholland writes about these obstacles, he offers a gentle pastoral voice that guides the reader to meet God anew. Readers will grow spiritually as they read and digest Mulholland's insights into the ways we meet God in scripture.
