Tuesday Night Book Group |  Introduction to the Spiritual Life: Walking the Path of Prayer with Jesus by Dr. Brant Pitre

January 11 @ 7:00 pm - March 15 @ 8:00 pm

The Tuesday Night Book Group invites you to join us every Tuesday night (7-8:15 pm) as we explore the just-released book INTRODUCTION TO THE SPIRITUAL LIFE: Walking the Path of Prayer with Jesus by Dr. Brant Pitre.

 

The path of following Jesus is an ancient and storied spiritual tradition. Yet many believers are not familiar with the three major forms of prayer and the three stages of spiritual growth that exist to bring us closer to God.

This book draws on the riches of the Bible, the words of Jesus, and the writings of mystics across the centuries to shed light on the mystery—and wonder—of the spiritual life. Starting with the age-old belief that the path of prayer is not only informative but transformative, we will explore:

• The scriptural roots of vocal, meditative, and contemplative prayer
• The purgative, illuminative, and unitive stages of spiritual growth
• The spiritual exercises of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving
• The Jewish roots of the Lord’s Prayer
• Lectio Divina: how to pray with the Bible
• Seven vices and their seven opposing virtues
• The battle of prayer: how to deal with difficulty and distractions
• The “dark night of the soul” in the Scriptures

Exploring sacred truths, contemplative insights, and practical steps, our study of this book will present participants with a veritable biblical road map of the spiritual landscape that enables us to follow Jesus as our primary guide.
