Pastors Beware – Retreat Network Offers Contemplative Authors

The Pastors Retreat Network, founded in 1997, “offers five-day retreats to pastors and pastor couples.” On the website, it states: “Scripture reading and meditation are at the heart of the experience.” According to the ministry’s Recommended Book list, this experience being offered to pastors and their wives is going to be mystical and similar to Eastern religion. Books include those by Richard Foster, Ruth Haley Barton, Thomas Merton, and Henri Nouwen, all of whom are/were mantra-meditation promoters.

There are a number of Christian websites that recommend or link to the Pastors Retreat Network, some of which are Crosswalk.com, Denver Seminary, theSpiritual Formation Forum, the Center for Church Advancement, Moody Broadcasting Network (a ministry of Moody Bible Institute), and many, many others.

If your pastor and his wife attend a retreat by the Pastors Retreat Network, very likely their spirituality will begin to take on a whole new mystical approach.
