Item description for The Slow-Release Miracle: A Spirituality for a Lifetime by Osb Andrew Nugent...
Overview Evokes the awakening, the growth, and the maturing of the human spirit, as it progressively discovers its divine filiation.
Publishers Description In The Slow Release Miracle, Andrew Nugent provides readers with a roadmap for reversing the three stages of spiritual awakening: 1. Points of departure (an awakening to the dimensions and dynamics of Christian spiritual life). 2. Vantage points (a growth in wonder for the many gifts of the Spirit in the Church and in the world.) 3. Points of arrival (spiritual maturity, which enables us to go gently into the night, unafraid, with joy and hope). The author points out that there will always be a need to celebrate God's "age-old beauty" which, in the words of St. Augustine, is "so old--and yet so new." The human spirit unfolding is a participation in God's beauty, God's work of art.
