It is concerning to me how widespread contemplative spirituality and spiritual formation have become. This book is a fictional story about a very real problem. Tessa goes to a Bible college and is drawn into the spiritual formation movement that has recently begun at the college. The book then goes on to describe what happens to her and the dangers that result from going down this path of ancient mystics. For those who wonder what spiritual formation is or why it is dangerous, this book will open your eyes to the reality of why this is not a Biblical practice. Easy to read and follow, it is eye-opening and scary! And it is everywhere! We need to be aware, alert, and discerning, always going back to God’s Word, the Bible, to compare what we are being taught. We need to know our Bibles.
