In Spirituality of the Gospels, the modern quest for spiritual fulfillment is met with profound insights from the gospels. All four gospels call readers to become faithful followers of Christ, but each gospel has a special focus on Christ. Responding to any gospel's special focus promises to also nourish a distinct spirituality, one that will resonate with the spiritualities of saints and disciples both ancient and modern. Hardin finds in Matthew's gospel a spirituality based on Christ's transformative presence within us; in Mark is found the challenge of martyrdom; in Luke the call to embrace the poor; and in John disciples are called to contemplative virtues springing from grace and love.
