Presbyterian pastor responds: What makes a good spiritual life?

May 31, 2011

Louisville

Presbyterian pastor Allan Hugh Cole Jr. has gathered a selection of two dozen "poets, prophets, and preachers" in his latest book, A Spiritual Life: Perspectives from Poets, Prophets, and Preachers. Writers such as Gail Godwin, Lauren F. Winner, William H. Willimon, Marjorie J. Thompson, drawing on their professional experiences and grace us with their personal thoughts. The resulting collection exposes readers to the spiritual lives of a diverse group of people with a wide range of Christian experiences.

The book is currently being offered at a 50% discount from The Thoughtful Christian website, and is also available at other retailers, including Cokesbury.

Allan Hugh Cole Jr. is Academic Dean and Nancy Taylor Williamson Professor of Pastoral Care at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and an ordained Presbyterian minister. He discusses the book and its contributors on this month’s episode of WJK Radio with Dan and Jana, which can be heard for free.
