Item description for The Holy Longing: Guidelines for a Christian Spirituality by Ronald Rolheiser...

An award-winning author and theologian presents a vivid, compelling study of Christian spirituality, offering a definitive explanation of God and the Church, and provides helpful guidelines on how to apply spirituality within one's own life.

Publishers Description
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.
