Christianity Today Book Awards 2005 A life-changing guide to being formed like Jesus. What does Jesus teach us about spiritual formation? Ultimately, this is the question motivating the practice of the classical spiritual disciplines. Many of the spiritual masters that we look to today offer great insights on various aspects of the Christian faith journey. Their words speak to us of union with God, transformation, and purpose. But behind these worthy goals stands Jesus, shaped himself by the ancient Jewish creed for spiritual formation, the "Shema."
This creed expresses that Israel is to love God with heart, soul, and strength. Jesus amended that creed of Judaism for his very own followers and so gave to them a creed for spiritual formation that was to change the world: they are to love God AND to love others as themselves. In this practical, story-filled, witty, and illuminating volume, Scot McKnight gives Christians an opportunity to walk alongside Jesus as he teaches the Jesus Creed of love of the Father and love of others.
