 Reading Classics of Christian Spirituality   WS-510-2 Fall 2002

This course will explore the nature of spirituality and its relevance to contemporary life and ministry by means of a critical examination of classic Western spiritual literature, including forms of monasticism, certain of the mystics, and later authors from both Protestant and Roman Catholic circles. The main issue to be explored is how people are shaped into and conformed to Christ's image through spiritual disciplines, particularly as exemplified in the writing and reading of classic Western spiritual literature. The course will be attentive to methodologies of the discipline of spirituality, particularly exploring applications for one’s personal life.
