“A 1999 Academy of Parish Clergy Top Ten Book!Theology is “”the doctrine of living unto God,”” wrote the Puritan theologian William Ames. Unfortunately, post-Enlightenment theology has tended to divorce “”doctrine”” from “”living unto God.”” And to the degree that this split has been deepened and perpetuated, both theology and spirituality have been impoverished.is a rare book. In it, Simon Chan surveys the little-explored landscape where systematic theology and godly praxis meet, highlighting the connections between Christian doctrine and Christian living and drawing out the spiritual implications of particular aspects of systematic theology. Allowing rational formulations to drop into the background, he brings the mystery of the faith to the fore.Chan begins with the principal doctrines of God, sin, salvation and the church. He then progresses to a reflective consideration of the practice of the spiritual life, from prayer to spiritual direction. Unabashedly evangelical and truly ecumenical, Chan grounds his exploration in the sources of the Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox traditions. His work is well abreast of contemporary theological currents and crossculturally conversant from an Asian perspective.is a book for those who care deeply about theology spirituality, and strive to integrate the two. It is well worth careful reflection and prayerful reading.”
