Foundations of Christian Formation
Formation Theology Series
This volume marks the start of how to apply the findings in Volumes One to Seven of the Formative Spirituality Series (1989-1995) to an understanding of human and Christian growth over the entire developmental course of our life.
Years from now this Summa will be seen as a pivotal volume in the emergence of a fresh and profound convergence of theology and biology. Adrian van Kaam and Susan Muto have steadfastly illuminated the formative perspective for over a quarter of a century. Current scientific discoveries are revealing to us that the workings of God's universe pose a formative mystery that conforms to van Kaam's empirical formation science. The Christian faith tradition owes these co-authors profound gratitude for posing our theological formation tradition in a light consonant with new scientific discoveries in biology and complexity.
