Failure As Part of the Spiritual Life – Bart Tarman

Bart Tarman

Bart Tarman has spent more than 30 years focusing on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth – but from an non-religious perspective. He presents the Jesus of the four Gospel narratives in a way that is relevant to our real life struggles and opportunities. Bart loves the subtitle to Gandhi’s autobiography: My Experiments with Truth, because he feels that our connection to Jesus Christ should be just that…. an ongoing experiment with truth and love…. in real life.

    Counter-intuitive, yes, but true to Scripture, religious history, memoir/biography, and contemporary experience. Only by such deep failure , by such coming to the end of ourselves, by such dark nights of the soul (which can last for weeks, months, years, even decades) can we move still deeper into God’s love. It’s startling to realize there is no limit to how close we can get to the Greater Lover of our souls. Oh, to be more willingly to go through whatever it takes to enjoy more intimacy with Him…

    Brilliant. Ties in with so much I’ve been reading about spiritual formation.
