Rowman & Littlefield, 2003 - Religion - 168 pages
In thirteen original essays, renowned spiritual writers and theologians wrestle with the problems of the human condition in the world today and reflect on what a walk with God might reveal about current situations and future possibilities.
In their own words, they shed light on the complex and multilayered issues of religion and assist with our understanding of the past, the present, and the future in religious and social contexts.
With passion, clarity, and gentleness, the wide range of perspectives found in Walking with God in a Fragile World encourages readers of all faiths to reflect on their own existence and gain new focus on their daily lives with the guidance and inspiration of some of the most respected spiritual leaders in our midst.
