In his latest book, Kelly Kapic’s passion to embrace the life transforming potential for the discipline of theology is contagious. I was captivated, even in the first few pages. He inspires a renewed value and fresh perspective, arguing that the committed Christian cannot afford to discount theological study. Kapic’s concern for the tendency to struggle with integrating theology and spirituality motivated this most inspirational, thoughtful book. He asserts that there should be an organic connection between theology, prayer, suffering, humility and community—all of life. Drawing from the works of St. Augustine, Ignatius, and Thielicke, to mention a few, Kapic richly demonstrates throughout history, making contemporary application, that theology and spirituality should be highly integrated.
