Book Description:
A wonderful introduction to our neglected Christian traditionWith lilting prose and sparkling insight, Armstrong draws us into the spiritual riches of medieval Christianity. He uses the insights of C. S. Lewis and other modern interpreters to shine a light on that long-past yet still remarkably relevant era. This book will serve equally well in college, seminary, and church education classrooms.–Grant Wacker, Duke Divinity SchoolUsing the wisdom of C. S. Lewis as a point of entry, Armstrong unpacks the material and sacramental world of the medieval church, demonstrating why such dated material is much needed in the life of the evangelical church today. This is a must-read for anyone who cares about the evangelical church’s future.–Greg Peters, Biola University, author of The Story of MonasticismArmstrong’s approach to introducing twenty-first-century Christians to the rich resources of medieval and monastic wisdom is ingenious. He uses C. S. Lewis to invite us into a conversation with other contemporaries who have found that this oft-neglected period of Christian history provides the kind of embodied and holistic spiritual life that is needed as a remedy for today’s gnostic, individualistic, and shallow spirituality.–Dennis Okholm, Azusa Pacific University, author of Dangerous Passions, Deadly Sins: Learning from the Psychology of Ancient MonksWith a searching evaluation of his own evangelical leanings and inspired by the discerning medievalism of his spiritual mentor C. S. Lewis, Chris Armstrong takes us on a delightful tour through the insights of medieval Christians that have most profited him. With Armstrong’s sparkling prose, the journey never turns arcane or becomes tiresome, and it leaves us with many treasures to ponder.–Robert B. Kruschwitz, Institute for Faith and Learning, Baylor UniversityA wonderful introduction to our neglected Christian tradition for all those who feel something is missing in the modern church. It is also a real treat for fans of C. S. Lewis.–Devin Brown, Asbury University, author of A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. LewisAn excellent introduction to medieval spirituality, philosophy, theology, and Christian practice.–David Neff, former editor in chief, Christianity Today and Christian History
