Spiritual Formation: Putting the Pieces Together In An Online Course

The concept of spiritual formation has received increasing interest since the turn of the century (Willard, 1998b, p.101), and has become an important component of theological education, especially among those institutions that are members of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS), in that, one of the key outcomes expected of member schools is “personal and spiritual formation” (Handbook, 2005-2007).
