My new grandson Alexander Thomas Yi Luper was born today!
Big brother William and I are checking him out earlier today.
We are so blessed!
In his book on prayer, Tim Keller argues well for what I would call a biblically informed theology while seeking (again my words) a deep experience with God.
I’ve said it before, this book is the most important book on prayer, and therefore growing spiritually, in a long time, maybe ever. It is worth your time.
Recently, a couple of us have gotten to chapter 11 in which he states:
“Owen promotes what could be called a radically biblical mysticism. It comes through meditation on Scripture, on theological truth, on the gospel—but it must break through to real experience of God.”
This is a great description, I think, of what Paul urged when he told to “renew our minds” in Romans 12.
