Many discussions of Christian spirituality draw on a range of traditions and 'disciplines'. However, little attention appears to have been given to the Bible itself as a source of spirituality, or to its teaching on this theme. Furthermore, a common assumption is that the evangelical tradition has little to offer in the area of spirituality.
In response, Peter Adam urges us to renew our confidence in a biblical model of spirituality, and to test our spirituality by the Bible. Drawing on a selection of Old and New Testament texts, along with significant insights from the Christian tradition, he expounds the shape and structure of a gospel-centred 'spirituality of the Word', through which we receive the life that God gives, and know God himself.
