Why do people, including Christians, feel empty, estranged and cynical?

Many of us have tired of the pat answers that the church and religion have provided about our questions about faith and meaning in life. We know there s more and we stand on the cusp of spiritual awakening, longing to reshape our connection with God.

In the tradition of Ronald Rolheiser s The Holy Longing, Don Clymer and Sharon Clymer Landis (brother and sister, both spiritual directors and retreat leaders) take modern spirituality and turn it on its head to flesh out a Christian spiritualty of emptying oneself. How can I know God more fully? What does it mean to be a true servant walking closely with God: brutally honest with oneself, and true to Christ? Through riveting stories and text grounded in scripture, the book speaks to the deep cynicism of soul and despair that grip so many in this age.

Anyone wanting to become more loving, in touch with feelings, friends and family will find hope and direction in this easy-to-read book on the spiritual journey. We are all hungry for a full-flavored life, yet we ignore our deepest soul and quiet our cravings with more of everything. How does one embrace a spiritually simple life gracious, accepting and fulfilling?
