The World as Sacrament Dec 13, 2004
Clearly intended for the theological student or seminarian, DISCERNMENT AND TRUTH is a scholarly, yet highly readable exploration of the art of spiritual discernment, meaning the discipline of recognizing the hidden movement of God in history, in daily life, in the interior/exterior universe of ourselves. The author focuses on three main areas: the theology of discernment as it develops through history, from the earliest Christian writers through the 20th century; case studies from Christian literature; and the practice of discerning truth, of allowing the world to become sacramental in our eyes. The book is a treasure trove for spiritual directors and students of the contemplative dimension of spirituality. Included: a first-rate bibliography and questions for study and reflection for each chapter.
