Just Arrived! Magnificent

Just Arrived! Magnificent November 13, 2018

James Bryan Smith, whom I consider one of North America’s leading voices on spiritual formation, directs The Apprentice Institute in Wichita KS and his program is connected to Northern Seminary’s DMin program in spiritual formation. I have myself participated in their program for three years and I come away blessed each time.

James Bryan Smith’s trilogy — The Great and Beautiful series — is followed in the way only James Bryan Smith can write, in the Magnificent series. These are books for groups and for Sunday School classes as well as for individuals. They only come to light after each chapter has been used by groups, improved through discussion, and then finally edited into fine shape.

I consider this series to be the best series I know for spiritual formation.

The Magnificent Journey: Living Deep in the Kingdom.
