Founded on the premise that each of us is to be a sign of the living God, "nourishing the world with spiritual fruits, "Pathways of Spiritual Living" is a primer on spiritual formation for Christians in the world. Focusing on the universal call to holiness, acclaimed author Susan Muto takes us through each step along the path of spiritual living: silence, solitude, prayer, reading, meditation, journal-keeping, contemplation and service.
Grounded in scripture as well as the classic mystical texts, this book successfully harmonizes the wisdom of medieval spiritual masters with contemporary spiritual living in the midst of secular pursuits. Throughout, the reader is awakened to the reality of being present, being open, and being reconciled. The author's own personal struggles as a modern laywoman--as well as the application of the struggles we all encounter, regardless of our walk in life--lend a useful immediacy to the reader and an insight into the means of integrating our interior life and our public tasks. such harmonious living is a realizable goal, Muto contends, and an invitation to which all Christians must repond.
Dr. Susan Muto, Ph.D., is executive director of the Epiphany Association and the Dean of the Epiphany Academy of Formative Spirituality. Her special field of interest resides with the classical masters for spiritual formation.
