Description

"This book seeks to illuminate the spiritual journey of a small but rapidly growing Christian movement of those who seek to transcend inherited religions precisely because their enlarged sense of adult maturity requires them to do so. Embracing an adult perspective of faith requires readjustments to inherited wisdom. For some, it means discarding a great deal of what no longer feels credible or useful. For others, it means reworking the tradition to make it relevant for the 21st century. For all, it involves an evolutionary imperative calling forth new levels of engagement with the complex spiritual awakening of our time."

With his trademark exploration of the meaning of "adult faith" in an age marked by new understandings of cosmology, anthropology, quantum physics, and evolution, O'Murchu here also includes reflections on his own spiritual journey, offering an understanding of the Christian message that retains its power precisely by showing how it taps into deep archetypal and symbolic meaning.
