"Spirituality" for this generation has come to mean anything that brings personal fulfillment, causes introspection, or generates positive spiritual feelings. In an effort to be inclusive, its definition has been reduced to little more than a vague uplifting emotion.
For the Christian, though, true spirituality - experiencing God and becoming mature in him - is the very thing that undergirds and energizes the believers life in Christ. This solid foundation to real spirituality can only be found and developed as we grow in our faith and understanding of the core biblical doctrines.
In this insightful study of fifteen basic doctrines such as God, the Trinity, sin, Jesus, salvation, and the church, Dr. David Larsen takes his reader back to the foundations of spirituality - the Bible itself. He bridges the gap between faith and practice - not just teaching us what we need to know, but showing us how to put it into action.
