Theologian Reflections over a Spiritual Journey Aug 26, 2000
I find this book unusually challenging, both for the depth and breath of issues that are unequivocably addressed with limpid and even perplexing objectivity and honesty. I recommend this treatise to any individual seeking a deeper understanding of his/her spiritual journey. Not an easy reading, but ever so worthwhile!
