Selected Readings for Individuals and Groups
Edited by James Bryan Smith, the fifty-two selections in Devotional Classics have been organized to introduce readers through the course of one year to the great devotional writers. In addition to the author's original text, each reading features an introduction, a linked biblical passage, discussion questions, individual and group exercises, and a meditation by Richard J. Foster. Featured authors include: Augustine of Hippo, Bernard of Clairvaux, Francis of Assisi, Julian of Norwich, Catherine of Sienna, Thomas à Kempis, Catherine of Genoa, Martin Luther, and many more. The readings are organized according to the Six Traditions of Christian life and faith emphasized through Renovaré: Contemplative, Holiness, Charismatic, Social Justice, Evangelical, and Incarnational.
