Too often, our study of the Bible focuses on searching for specific information or some formula that will solve our pressing needs of the moment. But what if we approached the Bible differently, and instead of transforming the text to meet our needs, allowed it to transform "us"?
That's exactly the idea behind "Life with God," Richard J. Foster's much-anticipated book on the Bible. Foster, bestselling author of "Celebration of Discipline" and general editor of "The Renovare Spiritual Formation Bible," claims that God has superintended the writing of Scripture so that it serves as the most reliable guide for Christian spiritual formation. According to Foster, the Bible is all about human life "with God." As we read Scripture, we should consider how exactly God is "with us" in each story and allow ourselves to be spiritually transformed. By opening our whole selves--mind, body, spirit, thoughts, behavior, and will--to the page before us, we begin to grasp all the Bible has to teach about prayer, obedience, compassion, virtue, and grace and apply it to our everyday lives to achieve a deeper relationship with God.
With a wealth of examples and simple yet crucial insights, "Life with God" is an indispensable guide to approaching the Bible through the lens of Christian spiritual formation, revealing that reading the Bible for interior transformation is a far different endeavor than reading the Bible for historical knowledge, literary appreciation, or religious instruction.
