While acknowledging the inherent tension between evangelicals who emphasize theological propositions and those who emphasize personal experience, Alister McGrath believes that spirituality represents the interface between ideas and life, between Christian theology and human existence. Through detailed examination of McGrath's previous work and the writing of other evangelicals, The Merging of Theology and Spirituality offers an overview of a unique thinker's contributions and a guide for future theological and spiritual exploration.
