Martin Marty's forward to Richard Foster's book raises an interesting challenge to modern-day Christians. How do we present a moored spirituality, rooted in truth to New Agers who create their own self-centered spirituality grounded completely in their own personal experiences? The book never really answers the question. Rather, Foster's anecdotal collection of Christian spirituality runs the gamut of doctrine and experience, meandering across the vast array of Christian experience, providing interesting tales of religious experience. As apology and polemic, it is merely postmodern experience sharing.
