    About The Book

    In this fresh approach to Christian spirituality, John Driver shows that the spirituality of Jesus’ disciples and the early Christian church encompasses every dimension of life. Grounded in the example of Jesus himself, it finds expression in the visible witness of the church community, and in the daily lives of faithful Christians who seek to embody Christ’s presence in the world by serving others.

    This understanding of Christian spirituality was recovered in a remarkable way by the radical reformers of the sixteenth century – the Anabaptists – and it continues to find expression among a wide variety of Christian groups around the world today. Life Together in the Spirit will inspire, challenge, and encourage you to experience the presence of the Spirit in all its dimensions.

    The seventh title in the Global Anabaptist-Mennonite Shelf of Literature, an initiative of Mennonite World Conference, Life Together in the Spirit includes responses from church leaders and scholars around the world.
