I wanted to bring to the attention of my dear readers the recent publication of The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows (IVP, 2009). The book, by James Bryan Smith, has been heralded by Dallas Willard as “the best practice i have seen in Christian spiritual formation.”
I have had the privilege to know some of the people that were involved with this book, and they are some of the most Christ-like people i know. This material has played a role in that, and in my humble opinion its worth it for anyone to check out the book (the 1st in a series). If you have any interest in spiritual formation, then this book is a must.
