Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809143976, Paperback)

Many books on spirituality seem to envisage it as a skill, a technique, a discipline, a therapy or an experience. But spirituality is much more than these things. According to Andrew Nugent it is the slow-release miracle, the ongoing creative work of the Spirit, wherein we come to truly exist. It is a life, which the Holy Spirit progressively creates within us; a profound attitude of soul; a commitment in love to God.

In THE SLOW RELEASE MIRACLE, Andrew Nugent provides readers with a roadmap for traversing the three stages of spiritual awakening:
1. Points of departure (an awakening to the dimensions and dynamics of Christian spiritual life).
2. Vantage points (a growth in wonder for the many gifts of the Spirit in the Church and in the world.)
3. Points of arrival (spiritual maturity, which enables us to go gently into the night, unafraid, with joy and hope).

The author points out that there will always be a need to celebrate God's ''age-old beauty" which, in the words of St. Augustine, is " so old--and yet so new." The human spirit unfolding is a participation in God's beauty, God's work of art.
