Brokenness and Blessing Towards a Biblical Spirituality






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Baker Academic
Summary: "At a time when one had almost despaired of finding anything but drivel under the title 'spirituality,' here comes a wonderful book that advocates and demonstrates the placing of the Christian life under a reengagement with the 'overarching story of the Scriptures, read as a unity': creation, fall, redemption, pilgrimage, consummation. As it did patristically and always has done liturgically, the Bible functions agai...n--avoiding both fundamentalism and reductionism--as the provider of genuinely historical themes and patterns for human existence in trust toward the God of Jesus Christ. As a good Methodist, Frances Young opens each chapter with a substantial hymn (not always by Charles Wesley), and she intersperses her learned and autobiographical expositions of the scriptural episodes and metaphors with poetic compositions of her own. The overall result is both demanding and moving, a true gift of the Holy Spirit."--Geoffrey Wainwright, Cushman Professor of Theology, Duke Divinity School"Personal and profound, this work of Frances M. Young brings to life a deeply traditional and immediately relevant way of reading the Scriptures. We are given the privilege of seeing the transforming effect of the encounter with the Word of God as she allows the scriptural narratives, as they have been read by the Fathers, to bear upon her own life and experience--from brokenness to blessing. Using her expertise in patristic exegesis in this way, Frances Young has produced a book of great spiritual insight and a powerful witness of the Christian tradition today."--Rev. Dr. John Behr, dean, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary"Frances Young's profound insights draw us into the kind of biblical spirituality needed for this century--a spirituality of discovering our limitations, wrestling, following, imitating, emptying, and longing. Meanwhile, she teaches us words we don't usually practice--the apophatic, anagogic, and katabatic moves that help us love God more deeply. Out of her own brokenness, Young offers us a great blessing!"--Marva J. Dawn, teaching fellow in spiritual theology, Regent College, and author of Talking the Walk and Joy in Divine Wisdom
