Using John for Spiritual Formation

For this featured conversation, Lauren Calvin Cooke speaks to us about how to utilize John’s Gospel for spiritual formation. The reason we have Scripture is that through our encounters with it, God shapes us.

Conversation Highlights

  • The richness of John’s images, and how a slower approach to John can be rewarding
  • How glory and glorification in John show us what it looks like to progress in the spiritual life
  • A deeper understanding of how Truth works in John
