“Follow me.” With two words, Jesus invited his disciples to a journey of being spiritually formed in and around him. This course will address some of the key aspects involved in pursuing a deep and fully-formed life in Christ, such as personal disciplines, calling, and giftedness in an approach that is biblically grounded, theologically engaged, historically rooted, and personally applied. As M. Robert Mulholland Jr. states, “Spiritual formation is a process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others.” Students will be invited to further formulate their own understanding of spiritual formation as they consider the biblical, theological, historical, and personal dimensions of life in Christ by engaging the thoughts and insights of other Christian writers – including Albert Simpson and A. W. Tozer.
