CTS Trustee Hine Publishes Guide for Spiritual Journeys
05/04/2012 | Lifelong Learning
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 dean 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.
