Announcing Two “New” Transforming Resources!
Coming Spring 2016
The Transforming Center is honored to steward the work of Dr. M. Robert Mulholland (1936-2015) by offering two of his most important works to a new generation of pastors and leaders. In partnership with InterVarsity Press we will be re-releasing expanded editions of Invitation to a Journey and The Deeper Journey as Transforming Resources this spring!
Invitation To A Journey
Expanded by Ruth Haley Barton to include a new forward, spiritual practices and a study guide for groups
M. Robert Mulholland Jr. defines spiritual formation as “the process of being formed in the image of Christ for the sake of others.” In Invitation to a Journey, Mulholland helps Christians new and old to understand that we become like Christ gradually, not instantly. He reviews the classical spiritual disciplines and demonstrates the importance of undertaking our spiritual journey with (and for the sake of) others.
This road map for spiritual formation is profoundly biblical and down to earth. In the finest tradition of spiritual literature, it is a vital help to Christians at any stage of their journey.
The Deeper Journey
Expanded edition with study guide for individual reflection or group discussion.
As you journey deeper in the Christian pilgrimage, you come to realize that the Christian life is more than merely replicating particular spiritual disciplines or practices. You begin to understand that at the core of Christian faith is the transformation of your very identity.
M. Robert Mulholland Jr. exposes the false selves that you may be tempted to hide behind and helps you to instead discover the true self that comes from being hidden with Christ in God. Not only will you encounter the joy of discovering your own self, you will also find a greater love for others and compassion for the world.
