CTS Trustee Hine Publishes Guide for Spiritual Journeys

The journey of faith is a lifelong activity.  Christian faith is based on relationships with God, oneself, and others, and is mystical. Peace and joy are the goals of the spiritual journey one walks through in the Christian faith.  In SHOW: Four Guides for a Journey to Joy & Peace Through Prayer, author William Hine focuses on using the SHOW (Surrender/Suffering, Humility, Obedience and Wonder/Awe) principles along with a dedicated prayer life through which one can obtain peace and joy. 

Hine, a member of the board of trustees of Christian Theological Seminary, is the de
an of the School of Continuing Education and a professor of Education in the College of Education and Professional Studies at Eastern Illinois University.


In SHOW: Four Guides for a Journey to Joy & Peace Through Prayer, Hine writes that everyone is considered as a spiritual being on life’s journey.  God is always knocking and one must learn how to listen and see what God has to say.  Through this workbook, readers are provided with exercises to deepen their understanding of the SHOW principles and the different types of prayer approaches that it presents.


The SHOW: Four Guides for a Journey to Joy & Peace Through Prayer workbook is divided into three major sections. Section 1 discusses the SHOW principles and their centrality to one’s Christian and spiritual journey; Section 2 discusses different prayer forms but focuses on contemplative prayer and Lectio Divina readings of the Bible and other religious books; Section 3 provides a series of reflections and exercises based upon the SHOW principles.


This workbook chronicles one’s journey to God. It shows to everyone that receiving Christian peace and joy never ends as one walks through life with God.  Nothing can separate one from God’s love. One’s faith is always a journey to one’s true self.
God, through Christ and the Holy Spirit, SHOWs the way to peace, joy, and living in relationships.
