The God of Intimacy and Action

Full Product Description

In ‘The God of Intimacy and Action’ the authors of ‘Connecting Like Jesus’ again join forces to help you rediscover those quiet, personal and contemplative spiritual practices that lead you into a deeper sense of intimacy with God. Because only with that knowledge of God at the heart of your being can you find the spiritual passion and energy to reach out to others; spreading the gospel and creating the conditions where justice for the poor and oppressed can take root, grow and flourish.

As in their previous book, the two authors show why only this combination of intimacy and action is not only crucial to the gospels impact on society, but is supported by historical evidence. Examples are drawn from the lives of men and women of great faith through the Christian ages including St Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, and Catherine of Siena.

Campolo and Darling help you explore the practices of so called ‘mystical spirituality’ that few readers understand – and might even fear because of that unknown. The integration of its practices with evangelism and justice lead toward what the authors call 'holistic Christianity' that will nurture and energise personal spirituality beyond the private Christian life with an impact that goes deeper than merely limiting the action of belief to self-righteous and self serving beliefs and behaviours.

The God of Intimacy and Action by Tony Campolo; Mary Albert Darling was published by SPCK in March 2013 and is our 44419th best seller. The ISBN for The God of Intimacy and Action is 9780281069330.

Publisher's Description

The God of Intimacy and Action reveals how contemplative spiritual practices can lead to greater intimacy with God and fuel passion for reaching out to others, through spreading the Good News and fostering justice for the poor and oppressed. The authors show why this combination is not only crucial but historical: it is vividly demonstrated in the lives of saints such as St Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, and Catherine of Siena.

Campolo and Darling explain mystical spirituality and its practices and integrate them with evangelism and justice to illuminate what they call 'holistic Christianity'. They suggest specific ways to nurture and energize one's spirituality and show how to go beyond living a Christian life that merely emphasizes right beliefs and right behaviours.
