Review:
The lives of the saints are provided to inspire, encourage and invite us to join them on our own journeys of transforamtion. Consider a copy of Sittser's excellent, well-researched book for your home or church library.--Gail Welborn, The Cypress Times February 17, 2009

Sittser utilizes the metaphor of food and drink to serve up a timely corrective to one-generational approaches by inviting sojourners to an elaborate feast with the family of faith. This tried and true recipe deserves consideration not only as a personal or collective devotional but also for courses in church history, ecclesiology, and spiritual formation.--Martin William Mittelstadt, Religious Studies Review, September 2008

Even if we cannot be a Saint Francis ora monk, there are lessons to be learned from reading about our predecessors in the Christian faith. Recommended for anyone who is interested in strengthening his or her spirituality.--John B. Shewmaker, Catholic Library World, December 2008

"Excellent, well-researched book."--Gail Welbourn, Montgomery's Journey, April 2008

"The lives of the saints are provided to inspire, encourage and invite us to join them on our own journeys of transformation."--Gail Welborn, Christian News Northwest, March 2008

"My supply of adjectives fails me in describing the worth of this book."--Betty Waller for The Lamplighter, February 2008

"An excellent resource for devotional study and personal spiritual development."--Pulpit Helps, December 2007

"Sittser's wonderfully capacious book gives us ecumenism at its best."--Christianity Today, November 2007

"[A] compelling history of spirituality. . . . Sittser concludes each chapter with . . . ways that certain spiritual practices can be incorporated into contemporary observance. . . . [A] valuable tool."--Publishers Weekly starred review, September 24, 2007

Water From a Deep Well will reward readers who appreciate thorough research and detailed reporting, enlivened by telling asides and black-and-white illustrations.--Monica Tenney, Congregational Libraries Today, November/December 2008

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. In Rome in A.D. 165, two men named Carpus and Papylus stood before the proconsul of Pergamum, charged with the crime of being Christians. Not even torture could make them deny Christ, so they were burned alive.Is my faithfulness as strong?In the fifth century, Melania the Younger and her husband, Pinian, distributed their enormous wealth to the poor and intentionally practiced the discipline of renunciation.Could living more simply deepen my trust in God?In the sixteen hundreds, Philipp Jakob Spener's love for the Word of God and his desire to help people apply the Bible to their life moved him to start "Colleges of Piety," or small groups.In what ways could commitment to community make me more like Christ?The history of the church has shaped what our faith and practice are like today. It's tempting to think that the way we do things now is best, but history also has much to teach us about what we've forgotten. In Water from a Deep Well, Gerald Sittser opens to us the rich history of spirituality, letting us gaze at the practices and stories of believers from the past who had the same thirst for God that we do today. As we see their deep faith through his vibrant narratives, we may discover that old ways can bring new life to our own spirituality. Gerald L. Sittser carves out a new discipline that blends spirituality and Christian history--spiritual history. He overviews Christian history through the lens of spirituality, looking at what we can learn about the spiritual life from various figures and eras.
