Ronald Rolheiser makes sense of what is frequently a misunderstood word: spirituality. In posing the question "What is spirituality?" Father Rolheiser gets quickly to the heart of common difficulties with the subject, and shows through compelling anecdotes and personal examples how to channel that restlessness, that deep desire, into a healthy spirituality.

This book is for those searching to understand what Christian spirituality means and how to apply it to their own lives. Rolheiser explains the nonnegotiables--the importance of community worship, the imperatives surrounding social action, the centrality of the Incarnation, the sustenance of the spiritual life--and how spirituality necessarily impacts every aspect of human experience. At the core of this readable, deeply revealing book is an explanation of God and the Church in a world that more often than not doubts the credibility of both.

Ronald Rolheiser, O.M.I., is a specialist in the fields of spirituality and systematic theology. His regular column in the Catholic Herald is featured in newspapers in five different countries. He is the author of the prizewinning The Restless Heart as well as Forgotten Amongst the Lilies, The Shattered Lantern, and An Infinite Horizon. He lives in Canada.

  • The Holy Longing

    I belong to a discussion group that reads a book together, with each of us having our own copy. We have only gotten through the first chapter and it will be a long time before we reach the end. At this early stage R. Rolheiser has certainly grabbed our attention. His view of spirituality is not run of the mill. His style is very readable and ideal for discussion. Best of all this book promotes thought and introspection. Each person can recognize the "holy longing" in his/her own life. Obviously my rating is preliminary and I see a potential 5 star. I can't wait to read some more!

  • Holy Longing

    Author made me feel proud to be a Catholic after many years. Book is well written, comprehensive and just plain ol' makes sense of so many aspects of life and religion. It actually should help everyone feel proud of their religion and help them want to worship with others of whatever persuasion.

  • Quick shipment and a good quality book. Thanks!
