The 2010 March edition of Christianity Today has some interesting articles on the relationship of doctrine to spiritual formation. In The Mind Under Grace, Darren Marks urges us to base our theology solidly on Scripture rather than the experiences of faithful people in the past, and warns against the temptation to think that what we experience is more important than what we think. His article helps to allay the fears of those who believe that spiritual formation is somehow untethered from the word of God.

This edition has two further articles on the importance of doctrine, one on the relationship of doctrine to the daily life, and a fascinating short section on using catechisms today.

All the best for the Journey, Gavin.
