The Ethics of Spiritual Formation for a Christian Puerto Rican in a Postmodern Urban Context
Escobar Arcay, David A.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v20 n2 p207-231 2011
This article examines the ministry-ethical implications and meanings of spiritual formation grounded in the so called "culture wars" and then in light of identity, the postmodern condition and the urban context. It highlights the tensions the church faces between being conformed to the world and being conformed to the image of Jesus (Rom12:2; 8:29, NLT). It offers a critical reflection one some of the lessons that I (the author) have learned over the years and attempts to draw conclusions for Christian education and experience. (Contains 1 table.)
