ABOUT THE CLASS:

The Discipline of Simplicity and Solitude : Integrating Spiritual Formation with Reading Scripture

The sacred word desires to transform our inner self and produce God intended fruits in our lives. If exegesis is to achieve a credible and coherent understanding of the text on its own terms and in its own context or that somehow the text in its context may speak to us in our different-yet-similar context[1], then Spiritual formation prepares the mind and soul of the reader for the ministry of the word.
