Publisher's Summary

The Gospels provide a profound path for spiritual growth. You are invited to follow that path.
Through this special 18-lecture course, explore a powerful four-fold ancient pattern found throughout life, Christian worship, and many revered spiritual exercises. This pattern appears to underlie the choice of four Gospels and their sequencing into the three-year Sunday reading cycles. The four Gospels, when read through this lens, move beyond separate accounts of Jesus to become a seamless spiritual guide for daily life.
In this course the words of Scripture that we know so well come alive in fresh and enriching ways. Each Gospel is explored as the answer to one of life's four great questions, matched to the particular spiritual dilemma of the early Christian community for which that Gospel was originally written.
Follow internationally celebrated author and Catholic educator Dr. Shaia on a path to an enriching understanding of the Bible's most frequently read books as well as a deeper spiritual connection to the church's traditional seasons.

What did you love best about The Four-Gospel Journey as a Guide for the Spiritual Life?

This is a highly informed and sensitive perception of the Gospel presented in a very intimate way. Although a 'different' take, it is firmly grounded in a spiritual practice that is relevant to 'how' we read as well as 'what' we read.It is very much a contemporary take on timeless reality.

What other book might you compare The Four-Gospel Journey as a Guide for the Spiritual Life to and why?

'Surprised by Joy' by C.S Lewis, has a similar sense of the personal revelations experienced by an individual being shared.

What about Dr. Alexander J. Shaia PhD’s performance did you like?

Alexander, is a natural teacher. He encourages the listener to think freshly rather than accept instruction. There is a poetic flavor to his expression of ideas that is both hooked into past thought, insight into history and universal grace .

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I consider this an excellent introduction to thinking and feeling the Gospel .

Any additional comments?

It blows away simplistic readings and helps reveal a deeply cultural context without becoming only 'history.' I think the writers own family history has allowed him to be able to act like a translator. There is an emotional edge that touches the heart. There is a tenderness and vulnerability that embraces the "I am with you."

Life changing.

A most beautiful, gentle and life changing look at the gospels from an author who has a heart for truth and a love for his fellow travellers on the long, confusing and often chaotic journey of human life. Something beautiful has happened in my life since I first stumbled across Alexander Shaia's work just a few short weeks ago. Highly recommended for thirsty souls and weary souls.
