Last year I read Kyle Strobel’s Formed for the Glory of God: Learning from the Spiritual Practices of Jonathan Edwards. It is by far one of the best books on spiritual formation I have read to date. He does a commendable job mapping out the journey toward heaven, with Edwards as our guide. It is well worth (re-)reading.
[As a side note, I find part of Rick Warren’s endorsement of the book rather comical: “I once took an entire year to read through his complete body of work.” While I know what he means to say, “complete body of work” is a misnomer. Edwards’s entire corpus is still not 100% transcribed and available for the general public to read. So, Warren either read the two volume works of Edwards or his twenty-six volume works–not Edwards’s “complete body of work.”]
