Item description for Holiness (Catholic Spirituality for Adults) by Sj William J. O'Malley...
Overview A masterful teacher looks at "down-to-earth" holiness and inspires us to live for God on the spot where we're standing. To be holy, writes Fr. O'Malley, is to be "fully human, fully alive," and he draws on Jesus' life and the examples of saints who are flawed like us to surprise us and inspire us to be what we already are: children of God in the family of God. A path-breaking series in which some of the best Catholic Authors explore the spiritual dimensions of their faith.

Reviews - What do customers think about Holiness (Catholic Spirituality for Adults)?
Father O'Malley does it again! Sep 6, 2008
I have read everything this man has written and this is one of the best yet; a nice, compact easy to read and insighful little book. He nails the Truth of Faith and the path to Holiness that is available to all who seek it.
It is a keeper for personal reference and also useful if you are involved in adult faith formation as there are thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter that are great food for thought if reading alone and wonderful starting points for group discussion.
Read anything he's written and it will change you, affect you and help you to become more human and able to embrace the Divine in yourself and others!!
Not What I Expected Jul 28, 2008
This Book did not live up to the one on Prayer by Joyce Rupp in the series. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
