In the birthing of a miracle or blessing, you must have equipped yourself with the reason, or the record of God, detailing that you are entitled to such a blessing, before making your request known to God. (Hebrews 11: 6) "Without faith (His evidence that He can do what you came for, His testimony that you are eligible to ask for it, the record of His capability) it is impossible to please God...." So, it is your evidence or testimony of what God can do that should prompt you to come to God in the first place. Testimonies, therefore, are not an account of what has happened, but is the living account of what He said He will do for anyone that believes in Him. They are the account of His faithfulness and dependability for anyone who will obey His word and do them as commanded. Testimonies in our church, COTR-UK, should not be a recall of an event, but a recall of His faithfulness.

This book began with Paul Steinberg’s realization that although religions are struggling to meet the needs and trends of our modern age, spirituality is not. Its contemporary manifestations continue to thrive, and Jews can be found throughout all varieties of spiritual leadership in America. Facing the fact that, for whatever reason, Jewish leaders simply have not done a good job of translating the ancient, spiritual wisdom of their beliefs into contemporary language and images that resonate with mass appeal, Rabbi Steinberg knew that the faith of his fathers was ready for a new spiritual message. And so he has written it—a message that is both particular to Judaism and uses Jewish language and text as starting points for a view that is universal enough to include spiritual concepts, terms, and expressions from many other spiritual traditions. Spiritual Growth: A Contemporary Jewish Approach provides both a language and a set of Jewish spiritual principles that are accessible and integrated with contemporary life, as well as being deep and authentically real (i.e., not “dumbed down” for anyone). It is a work that emerged out of Rabbi Steinberg’s own personal experiences, pains, and spiritual journey—the trials and growth documented in his highly successful book Recovery, the 12 Steps, and Jewish Spirituality. There are not a lot of works like this. There are books on Jewish scholarship, history, and theology. But books on Jewish spirituality tend usually to focus on a particular motif, such as the feminine, grief, aging, or Kabbalistic biblical interpretations. Spiritual Growth: A Contemporary Jewish Approach presents its message through the psycho-spiritual world view of 2018 but without the language and narrative of a therapist. It is an important contribution to the spiritual-seeking community at large, to Jews who have become alienated from their faith, and to anyone interested in learning more about what a historically vibrant spirituality can bring to today’s troubled world.
