How does spiritual formation happen? What changes in our lives when we grow spiritually? These questions are richly explored in “Becoming Whole and Holy: An Integrative Conversation about Christian Formation,” co-written by Carla M. Dahl, Luther Seminary professor of congregational and community care leadership and the George C. Weinman Chair of Pastoral Theology.
“Becoming Whole and Holy” presents a dynamic view of both Christian holiness and human wholeness by bringing together three different fields of thought: social sciences, biblical studies, and ethics. The result is a profound exploration of personal and communal formation, moral development, and the interpretation of Scripture.
Jeffrey P. Greeman of Regent College says, “This book is essential reading for students, pastors, and scholars who care about the pursuit of an authentically Christian life. The result is a splendid example of eminently practical theology that strengthens the church’s mission to make disciples.”
