The aim of this book is to establish biblical spirituality as an academic discipline. Therefore Huub Welzen combines the achievements of exegesis and spirituality in order to find a hermeneutical foundation for biblical spirituality. The first part of this book gives a short history of the way exegesis and spirituality relate to each other. The comparison of some contemporary models for the organization of the different approaches to Scripture delivers the hermeneutical foundation for the discipline of biblical spirituality. Its basic metaphor is dialogue. All hermeneutical findings in this part are illustrated with examples. The second part of the book focusses on a systematic search for spirituality in the New Testament. The third part offers examples of the impact reading biblical texts can have on the spiritual life of its readers.
In an epilogue Welzen presents an exegetical autobiography, in which he shows how biblical spirituality meets his original inspiration for the study of the Bible.
