This is THE most important article I have read regarding the "Christian" mysticism (contemplative spirituality) that is invading our evangelical churches and denominations. It reveals the "how" and "why" of it.

This is the question addressed by the article:

"What do the two accreditation organizations – Association of Theological Seminaries and Association for Biblical Higher Education - have in common? Both associations require schools that wish to be accredited to include Spiritual Formation within the school’s infrastructure. Just what exactly does that mean for these 350 some seminaries and Bible colleges? Well, it means that if they want to receive and maintain their accreditation, they are going to have to incorporate Spiritual Formation (i.e., contemplative spirituality) into the lives of their students."

Please also take the time to read my personal testimony about my involvement with this movement when I encountered it in a Spiritual Formation seminary course: A Personal Testimony: Why Christian Leaders Should Not Promote Henri Nouwen
