Author: Ronald Rolheiser
In Sacred Fire, Ronald Rolheiser continues his writing on Christian spirituality. He delves into the questions : "How can we live less self-centered, more mature lives?" "What constitutes deep maturity?" "How do we reach that place?" And, not unimportantly, "What constitutes a more adult, Christian discipleship?" and "What constitutes a truly mature following of Jesus?"
In this book, Rolheiser takes us on a journey through the dark night of the senses and of the spirit. Here, we experience the full gamut of human life, pleasure and fervor, disillusionment and boredom. But, as Rolheiser explains, when we embrace the struggle and yearning to know God we can experience a profound re-understanding of our daily lives.
