Chris Lohrstorfer Reintroduces Wesleyan Theology in Spiritually Insightful Guidebook About Breathing in God’s Grace

A lot of books about spirituality tend to talk a lot about breathing. But for theology professor Chris Lohrstorfer, this idea of Spiritual Respiration has always been found in Christianity, thanks to the wisdom of John Wesley, the father of Methodism. In his book, he breaks down this idea of breathing in the grace of God and how it relates to having a simple, beautiful, and genuine relationship with Him.

“We have been called to make disciples. But most people don’t know where to begin, or how to help someone relate to God. This book is a primer on discipleship. It is a must read for those who want to grow in their relationship with God, and for those who want to help others.” – Dr. Robert E. Coleman

Books on spirituality often speak about breathing and how it clears the mind. But for Wesleyan theologian and Methodist pastor Chris Lohrstorfer, genuine Spiritual Respiration is all about the grace of God and how Christians respond to it.

He breaks down this important theology in his book, “Learning to Breathe: Mastering the Art of Spiritual Respiration.”

In the book, he describes Spiritual Respiration as a process introduced by John Wesley, the father of Methodism. It focuses on the central tenet of Christianity as having a loving relationship with God.

The process begins by first addressing an objection: How could an eternal God, who is spirit, be in a relationship with mortal man, who is of flesh?

Spiritual Respiration seeks to answer this question in a simple and gentle manner, much like breathing itself. For Lohrstorfer, God is actively sharing His life, and Christians give back in worship and praise. God’s grace is something that they can peacefully breathe in and breathe out. It is not enough to just passively receive this grace, but rather keep the relationship ‘active and intentional.’

Lohrstorfer hopes “Learning to Breathe” will reach out to any Christian seeking a simpler understanding of what it means to have a relationship with God. Being a pastor as well as a professor, he sees the book as an excellent educational tool for discipleship and helping people know God.

At the very end, Chris Lohrstorfer’s “Learning to Breathe: Mastering the Art of Spiritual Respiration” even comes with group study questions as well as scriptural references and end notes. Curious readers can check it out on Amazon.
