Biblical History as the Quest for Maturity
|Author: ||Peale, John|
Traces the biblical story from beginning to end by showing how the spiritual life of the biblical Christian develops through what the author calls "moments in spiritual history" which have parallels in the process of one's personal maturity.
"By treating the major covenant-making figures (Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus), Peale presents various key 'spiritual moments' as growing-points and opportunities for deepening our personal trust in and intimacy with God. A real help for those interested in retrieving a contemporary 'spiritual exegesis' of Scripture." - Bulletin of Applied Biblical Studies
