Overview

Not all of us can be monks or nuns, but many of us yearn to deepen our relationship with God while supporting others through the vicissitudes of life. Wherever we find ourselves in the spiritual quest, this original and engaging book encourages us to become contemplatives in the world at large. The author reveals the ups and downs of his own journey, and introduces us to a galaxy of people who have guided him on his journalistic and spiritual travels.
