The Shape of Living : Spiritual Directions for Everyday Life
by David F. Ford and Susan Howatch and George Carey




Overview -
In our culture of distraction it can be hard to focus on spiritual matters. Work, finances, and uncertain futures are just a few things that overwhelm us daily. Discover how to overcome and develop an everyday spirituality that will guide your actions and bring meaning to your hectic life.

"Ford provides a way beyond distraction to joy and buoyancy."--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

"Amidst the glut of books on the devotional life that seek to be relevant and are only contemporary, this book is already a classic on the 'spirituality of everyday life.' I could hardly put it down."--Ray Anderson, Fuller Theological Seminary

"A wise book that concentrates on the principle aspects of our lives that we so often get wrong because we lack wisdom."--Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School

"Offers far greater wealth than even several readings can probe."--Books & Culture

"Profound and reflective . . . yet always concrete, and never dishonest or evasive. A jewel of the spiritual life in its everyday manifestations."--Nicholas Wolterstorff, Yale Divinity School

"These reflections ought to be read by laity and clergy alike, for they offer the spiritual renewal we desperately need."--L. Gregory Jones, Duke University Divinity School

"The Shape of Living is like a friend's invitation to a dinner at which you encounter some unexpected guests and hope for some life-shaping consequence. By all means, accept."--The Christian Century

David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity at Cambridge University, is the author and editor of many books, including Reading Texts, Seeking Wisdom
