Shaped by the Word: The Power of Scripture in Spiritual Formation

by M. Robert Mulholland Jr.

Paperback, 2001





"This book explores the role that scripture plays in spiritual formation. Mulholland examines obstacles often encountered in spiritual reading and introduces a new approach to reading that will enliven the scriptures. He also compares informational reading (reading to be informed) with formational reading (reading to be spiritually formed). Readers are released to God's initiative, allowing the scripture to form a spiritual life inside themselves. Revised edition published February 2001"--Publisher description.
