Description

The academic world, theological schools, and seminaries have been slow to recognize Spirituality as an academic discipline, consigning it to formation in religious houses and identifying it with formation and devotional practices. Fortunately, today, Spirituality is being recognized as an academic discipline. What exactly is Spirituality? And, what is its agenda today?
