Knowing and Doing (Fall 2012)

It was only relatively recently that I discovered Knowing & Doing – ‘A Teaching Quarterly for Discipleship of Heart and Mind’ – from the C.S. Lewis Institute.

The Fall 2012 issue has just become available online, and contains the following articles:

Thomas A. Tarrants
Hindrances to Discipleship: The World
Much of the communication around us operates as if the God of heaven and earth did not exist. It presses upon us from all directions and tries to mold how we think, feel, and act.

Jeanne Thum
A Fellow’s Journey from Washington to Wycliffe
What I’ve learned spiritually since arriving in Papua New Guinea is not facts about God or me. It’s more of a strengthening inside, a deepening trust and commitment to God.

Tom Schwanda
The Spiritual Discipline of Meditation: Reading Scripture with Isaac Ambrose
Ambrose reminds readers, ‘If the Spirit of Christ comes along with the Word, it will rouse hearts, raise spirits, work wonders.’

David B. Calhoun
‘Servants of the Servants of God’: Monica
Augustine came to understand this about his mother: Monica’s piety was not the result of inherent goodness or successful striving; it was God’s gift-received, not achieved.

Jana Harmon
C.S. Lewis on the Problem of Pain
Pain is pain and it hurts. Christ Himself knew pain and suffering – intimately, personally, profoundly. He, beyond all understanding, knows how we feel.
