Authentic Spirituality is an invitation
to discover the rich textures and contours of the catholic Christian
This book is a clarion call to the church to move beyond both a
dead orthodoxy and an amorphous liberalism to a dynamic orthodoxy--a
Word united with the Spirit.
—Donald G. Bloesch, emeritus, Dubuque Theological Seminary
Barry Callen has written a work on Christian spirituality that is
both ecumenicalin scope and engaging in its conversation. It is
informed by the streams of both Scripture and tradition in a way
that certainly will attract a wide audience. I highly recommend this
—Kenneth J. Collins, Asbury Theological Seminary
Christian spirituality aims at a full and authentic Christian
existence. In this present book, Barry Callen gives us a
comprehensive perspective on Christian existence and much
encouragement to deepen our walk with God.
—Clark H. Pinnock, McMaster Divinity College
Barry L. Callen has placed us in his debt by this fresh treatment
that clarifies the subject and illumines the path to the experience
to which we are summoned in the New Testament. Here is a timely and
helpful manual on the truly Christian experience of God in Christ
through the Spirit.
—James Earl Massey, dean emeritus, Anderson University
Insightfully, Dr. Callen has drawn from the best of Christian
thinkers and saints from every Christian century in presenting the
framework of Christian spirituality. His organizing principle,
founded on the Bible, the Apostles’ Creed,, and the Christian
tradition, presents a safe home for believers lost in the postmodern
swirl of any-things-goes pluralistic spirituality.
—Wesley D. Tracy, Herald of Holiness
