Spiritual Formation/Sanctification


Synopsis of theme:
The Spiritual formation/sanctification section is interested in papers that address issues of spiritual growth in Christ. Specifically it is interested in papers addressing the theological, integrative and practical issues relevant to the goals, processes and directives of transformation as well as the dynamics of assisting others in spiritual growth.

There has been a resurgent interest in the area of spiritual growth, traditionally discussed theologically under “sanctification.” The topic of “spiritual formation” has emerged as a renewed interest in the theology of sanctification as well as a more integrative and theological understanding of the experience, dynamic processes and directives involved in growth. However, we are aware that sometimes the spiritual formation movement has lacked in theological grounding and understanding. Thus, we desire to provide both guidance and theological leadership for this movement that combines theoretical rigor and true piety.
