Highly Recommended Reading!
5 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, May 25 2015
Viv Thomas, the founder Director of Formation, Honorary Teaching Pastor at St Paul's Hammersmith and Associate Lecturer at Spurgeon's College London, has written an extremely helpful book to equip believers to live lives that are biblically, theologically and spiritually rooted. Using as his framework the Trinity, the biblical meta-narrative of Creation, the Fall, Incarnation, Redemption, Ascension and Hope, and the three aspects of Communion, Community, and Mission, Thomas sets forth what the spectacular ordinary life looks like: it is encountering and flourishing in the love of the Father; it is discovering freedom through forgiveness; it is fully alive in the company of the Holy Spirit; it creatively engages the world; it healthily engages brokenness and the incomplete; it is fully present all the time, every day; it engages a world where everything can be redeemed; it is characterized by significance and celebration; it imagines the future and makes decisions rooted in hope; it flourishes in intimacy with God; it flourishes in community; and it moves out into the world taking faith risks. Besides setting forth a vision of what the spectacular ordinary life looks like, Thomas also shares how such a life can be cultivated through scripture meditation, prayer, learning, humility, rest (solitude, silence and Sabbath), community, celebration and living life as a journey. I found this book tremendously engaging and stimulating. It is highly recommended!
