About "Hearing God's Words (New Studies In Biblical Theology Series)"
Many discussions of Christian spirituality draw on a range of traditions and 'disciplines,' but often there is a lack of focus on the Bible itself. Drawing on the Old and New Testaments, Calvin, and the Puritans, Australian scholar Peter Adam expounds a biblical model of spirituality.

In this book Adam takes us through the important issues of times, places, objects and actions within the worship of the church. A reasonable portion incorporating the views of the church fathers with those in the reformation period is included, especially emphasising the works of John Calvin. I found the section, emphasising the need for the whole person to be engaged within their spirituality - mind AND heart - together seeking the Lord, as most helpful. Also a contrast between evangelical spontaneity and Reformed considered spirituality led to a discussion between Puritanism and its counterpart in Quakerism. Adam highlighted the weaknesses in both camps while providing a solid case for the historical practice of spirituality in the history of the church.
