The Form of Faith is a hybrid work, part spiritual autobiography and part essay--a style that stands in a long and honorable line going back to Lewis, Newman, and ultimately Augustine. Moreover, this work was created in response to the question that loomed large in the author's mind and with which he still wrestles: how does one live a Christian witness in the twenty-first century that is not culturally hijacked by political identification and can speak to the millennial generation? ""Dr. James Prothero's gift to us of The Form of Faith is the transparent and honest journey of a soul. I am reminded of Ignatius Loyola's Spiritual Exercises: remembrance of the foundational events in our life where God has embraced us with His Grace fortifies our deepest sense of gratitude which is the very ballast of our soul. Dr. Prothero affirms this guidance with his heartfelt narrative."" --Brad Karelius, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, Professor of Philosophy, Saddleback Community College, Mission Viejo, California James Prothero teaches English at Santa Ana College and Vanguard University. In addition to being a teacher and scholar, he is also a watercolor painter, poet, guitarist, and novelist. His study on C.S. Lewis is Gaining a Face: The Romanticism of C.S. Lewis. He is also author of the novel, The Sun is but a Morning Star. n
