Publisher's Summary

Listeners will be fully engaged in a unique and altogether fascinating discussion of Christian spirituality. Rolheiser seeks to reconcile the rift between a smorgasbord of spiritual voices and an authentic Christian discipleship by the use of anecdotes, personal examples and a wide range of literary and cultural references. His starting point is the desire within us that longs irresistibly for fulfillment.

He indicates four essentials that support a healthy marriage of Christianity and spirituality: private prayer and morality, social justice, mellowness of heart and active participation in a Church community. His insights will help many who are searching to understand what spirituality means and how to apply it to daily living.

Rolheiser unravels the implications of the Incarnation and the Pascal mysteries and defines how spirituality impacts every aspect of the human experience. From the spiritual masters he weaves the best from the old and the new into a practical discipleship.

Nothing is based on subjective facts

The basis of his argument made no sence. Nothing was subjective. Honestly it was really creepy and mystical.

Insightful and Lovely (but perhaps with an error somewhere?)

Overall, I think this was a very interesting and comprehensive read. I think there seems to have been a technical error, though—at one point, an entire section was repeated.
