Transforming Center and IVP Partner to Carry on Legacy of M. Robert Mulholland Jr.
The Transforming Center is honored to steward the work of Dr. M. Robert Mulholland, Jr (1936-2015) by offering two of his most important works to a new generation of pastors and leaders as Transforming Resources®. In partnership with InterVarsity Press we will be re-releasing expanded editions of Invitation to a Journey and The Deeper Journey as Transforming Resources this spring!
Based on the vision of Transforming Resources, these books will strengthen the souls of pastors, Christian leaders, and the congregations and organizations they serve. Beyond mere information, each book is designed to provide step-by-step guidance for engaging the practices that foster greater intimacy with God and deeper levels of spiritual transformation.
M. Robert Mulholland has guided tens of thousands of readers into spiritual formation practices for more than twenty years through Invitation to a Journey. Ruth Haley Barton, award-winning author and founder of the Transforming Center, has added a new introduction, discussion questions and sharing opportunities to this respected resource.
In the new expanded edition of Invitation to a Journey: A Road Map for Spiritual Formation, you will find spiritual practices that are intended to be a means of God’s grace – concrete ways of opening to God’s transforming work in your life in very personal ways.
The new expanded edition of The Deeper Journey: The Spirituality of Discovering Your True Self exposes the false selves you may be tempted to hide behind and helps you discover the true self that comes from being hidden with Christ in God. This expanded edition includes a study guide for individual reflection or group discussion.
Mulholland’s legacy of teaching and forming spiritual leaders has been a blessing to so many Transforming Community alumni. These expanded editions make them even more useful resources.
Robert Mulholland aided the Transforming Center in strengthening the souls of Christian leaders through his books and teaching in Transforming Community Retreat 8 . His role as a teacher, friend, and spiritual mentor played an integral part in the Transforming Community and will continue to help change lives through these expanded resources. He will also continue to teach in the Transforming Community through video recordings of this unpublished teaching.
“Bob was a theologian. His definition of spiritual formation is so clear and his approach to describing the process of spiritual formation is highly integrative of personal spiritual disciplines with the communal aspects of our faith. At every turn in his teaching and writing, he demonstrated that the process of being conformed to the image of Christ is always a means of opening to God’s grace for the abundance of our own lives AND it is always for the sake of others.” – Ruth Haley Barton
