Dan Wilt on The Four Degrees Of Love (Bernard Of Clairvaux)

This is a little 240 second (240s) reflection I did on the Four Degrees Of Love by Bernard Of Clairvaux. While his life is quite a mix of goodness and strangeness, this piece has always been one of the richest pieces of spiritual formation literature I’ve come across.

I believe that leaders in the emerging world have much to learn from the basic idea contained in the fourth degree of love.


Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
