Christfulness has its origins in the experience that God is with us, and comes to life in Christ. Just as the word of God became flesh in Jesus Christ, so we in Christ are given access to the nature of God.   This book explains Christfulness as an expression of faith, a spiritual experience and an attitude to life. The book is not just a theoretical work, but also encompasses practical experience. The content has been influenced by practice, and will also give the reader an insight into my own spiritual life. You will see this most evidently through the so called “inspirations” - passages which are my own experiences of God’s - as Father, Son and Holy Spirit - communication of God self to me during prayer and quietness in God’s presence. The second section of the book contains a description of how we practice Christfulness.

In this paper Ole Skjerbæk Madsen deals with the challenge to being a Church from the syncretistic nature of the new spiritualities. This raises questions like: Does a Christian presence in the new spiritual milieus result in a renewed Christianity – or will it mean the disappearance of the Gospel-core in a new religious synthesis? He argueds that the only chance of retaining the true meaning of the Christian foundational metaphors, imagery and spiritual practices in the neo-spiritual milieu is to be present and critically contextualize the gospel and inculturate the fellowship of Jesus’ disciples in the milieus – not fearing what people will make out of it and trusting the Holy Spirit to make the Gospel alive. But the success of this presence presupposes an authentic Christian spirituality in the Church and in the life of her evangelists.
