A New Year Gift:
Alex's Spiritual Formation on the Run

Spiritual Formation on the Run
Meditations to Grow the Busy Life

Alex Tang, Armour Publishing, 2009

I received a New Year Gift in the mail today! Alex sent me a copy of his latest publication, Spiritual Formation on the Run.

"Many of us live life on the run. But busyness is not an excuse to neglect the spiritual formation of our souls. In fact the busier we are, the more we need spiritual formation. This book allows us to practice lectio divina, which is the Latin for spiritual reading. Lectio divina opens us up to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and instills in us the disciplines of reading/listening, meditating, praying and contemplation. Short and crisp, the meditations and stories in this practical and thought-provoking book will give you focus in your life, rejuvenate your soul and draw you closer to God."

I plan to read it when I am done with my current reading, Rainer Albertz's Israel in Exile (SBL, 2003). I am looking forward to it.

Thank you so much, Alex!
