Christian adulthood is the focus of this book. In it we attempt to re-envision, to see anew, the patterns of power, confidence, and loss that shape maturity. This effort is guided by two ideas or, better, images that have long been central in Christian spirituality: vocation and virtue. Our goal is to befriend these images, to rescue them from narrow interpretations that have weakened each, to recover their power to illumine our adult journey with God."Seasons of Strength is a probing, thoughtful, and inspiring exploration of what it means to become an adult Christian. In it, the Whiteheads have distilled a clear and positive vision of human development in relation to faith, spirituality, and ministry. Invaluable as a text in adult education, this book is a steady resource for classroom use and personal reflection."-Richard Woods, Loyola University of Chicago"The book is well-grounded in tradition, but thoroughly contemporary and original in its conclusions. Highly recommended."-Library Journal
