Some brief overview of this book

Have you ever felt a tension between developing your internal spiritual life and the call to outward service in the world? Those of us who are more naturally activists risk becoming bitter, tired and burned out. Those of us who gravitate toward the contemplative life may struggle to connect our spirituality with the world around us. How do we allow the life of Jesus to flow through our whole bodies into our everyday lives?

This book is a result of how Tom Smith held these questions in tension, as Eugene H. Peterson reflects in his foreword:

There is a back story here that is helpful in understanding Tom Smiths fierce focus and energetic imagination. He grew up in South Africa during the years of apartheid. . . . He also was aware that the Rwanda genocide took place in a population mostly Christian. He became a pastor in a flourishing South African church and then came to North America. He experienced the temptation to degenerate church into a consumer program. . . . This book is a witness to what takes place when names trump numbers and stories with their accompanying metaphors keep relationships personal and prayerful.

Having Jesus in our hearts is not enough. Jesus calls us to a spirituality that involves our everyday actions and interactions with others and extends our sphere of influence. In this raw, honest, whole-life approach to Christian formation, Tom Smith introduces us into a rhythm of life that that brings flourishing to our personal spirituality that then extends to our service in the world.

Includes a helpful graphic depiction of the elements of a balanced rhythm of life

Author teaches frequently on developing a rhythm of life

Offers perspective on how we live out our personal formation is for the sake of the world

Embodied, whole-life approach to spirituality
