A Vision For A Deeper Human And Christian Maturity
Now in paperback with a newly commissioned reader’s guide—the long-awaited follow-up to The Holy Longing, one of the top-selling books on Catholic spirituality in the last two decades
Beloved author Ronald Rolheiser continues his search for an accessible and penetrating Christian spirituality in this highly anticipated sequel to the contemporary classic, The Holy Longing. With his trademark faculty and thoughtfulness, Rolheiser undertakes the writings of St. John of the Cross and shows how identifying and embracing the three stages of discipleship—Essential, Generative, and Radical—will lead to new heights of spiritual awareness. In this new book, Rolheiser takes us on the journey through “the dark night of the senses and spirit.” Here, we experience pleasure and fervor, disillusionment and boredom. But when we embrace the struggles and yearnings to know God, he shows us we can come together and apply this newfound understanding to our daily lives.
