PUTTING ON THE MIND OF CHRIST
The Inner Work of Christian Spirituality
6 in stock
A pioneering and transcendent work that offers an authentic Christian spiritual path
What does it mean to follow the path of Christ today? Former Catholic monk and mystic Jim Marion believes if you want to join Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven, you must strive for inner spiritual growth during your lifetime. It’s not something that automatically happens to Christians after death, nor can the Church do it for you. Inner spiritual growth, says Marion, has always been the true essence of Christian practice.
This is a book for thinking adults interested in Christian spirituality. Marion, director of the Institute for Spiritual Awareness in Washington, D.C., incorporates modern developmental psychology-including the work of Ken Wilber, Jean Piaget, Carol Milligan, and Lawrence Kohlberg, among others—in his exploration of the Christian spiritual path.
PUTTING ON THE MIND OF CHRIST is the ardent expression of a modern mystic reporting his spiritual experiences within a “Christ-focused” framework.
Drawing upon his own rich mystical experience and deep understanding of scriptural models, Marion shows the reader how to emulate the developmental stages of the Christ: how to put on the mind of Christ to achieve spiritual illumination and communion with the Christ.
Pioneering, transcendent and grounded, PUTTING ON THE MIND OF CHRIST may permanently alter the landscape of 21st century Christianity.
