New Orleans (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
At the beginning of a new year, nationally recognized pastor, mentor and spiritual journey guide John Winn encourages readers to spend time in spiritual reflection and contemplative prayer. With his new book, “SELECTIONS” (published by AuthorHouse), he leads the way to spiritual formation while taking readers on a journey that will help them further deepen their own dimension of spirituality.
“SELECTIONS” is grounded in the capacity of salient New Testament passages to enhance the meaning of our life experiences. It is interactive, disciplined, can be personal and/or corporate in its scope and makes possible a correlation between the wisdom of the New Testament and what is happening in one’s own spirituality. It is easily used with small groups.
The book is divided into the seasons of the Christian Year. Each week correlates a Gospel Reading and an Epistle Reading. It also introduces a new, alternative season for the Christian Liturgical Year, MISSIONTIDE, the final season which invites readers to live out on a day by day basis what faith teaches them.
Winn shares that it was his personal fascination and indebtedness to germane passages of the New Testament that inspired him to write “SELECTIONS”. With it, he helps readers in their journey through the different seasons of life. At the same time, he connects them to key passages from the New Testament that will help them affirm their own journey.
Dr. Russell Pregeant, Professor of Religion and Philosophy and Chaplain, Emeritus, Curry College, describes this book as a “New Testament lectionary that could enliven any pastor’s preaching, a devotional guide that could enhance any Christian’s spiritual formation, and nutritious food for theological reflection by laity or clergy.” Find more information in this video interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOwZv8bm9BU&feature=youtu.be.
