Product Overview

As we move toward time new millennium, popular interest in spirituality continues to gather momentum. Yet many people pursue the spiritual quest without any explicit relationship to organized religion.

Bacik begins by focusing on the split between prayer and daily life -- its historical roots and how it threatens the spiritual health of so many Christians. He explores how saints, like Augustine of Hippo and Catherine of Siena, and scholars, like Maurice Blondel and Teilhard de Chardin, integrated their spirituality with dally life. He then places these insights into a framework of contemplation and action as established by the great Jesuit theologian, Karl Rahner.

Bacik moves on to examine the spiritual dimension of work and leisure activities, and concludes by looking for signs of hope in our experiences of time, suffering and death, exploring such experiences as the Oklahoma City bombing, the death of his own father, and the inspiring death experience of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin. All told, Bacik offers important insight into the rich Christian tradition that can illumine and guide the spiritual quest today.
