I will regarded this peer reviewed journal published by the Institute of Spiritual Formation, Talbot School of Theology at Biola University as the single most important contribution to the study of spiritual formation in the last two years. Since it inaugural issue two years ago, it has been featuring scholars and writers who are working hard to lay the foundational basis for understanding , defining and researching Christian spiritual formation.

While there has been much discussion of spiritual formation on the Internet, much of it may be considered bias opinions and nebulous thinking rather than dealing with a foundational epistemology of spiritual formation. There is a great need to really define what spiritual formation. This journal is a major contribution. My only complaint is that its articles are not freely available on the Internet and its subscription is expensive to those in the poorer countries.
