The Church has stood silent over the last several years despite a growing divide between New Age inspired self-help books and traditional Christian spirituality. Christian teachers have dismissed as heterodox, and therefore unimportant, the phenomenal literary success of Eckart Tolle (A New Earth), Rhonda Byrne (The Secret), Deepak Chopra (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success), Don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements), and many others like them. Now Fox News analyst Fr Jonathan Morris wants to show that people do not need to abandon the Church in order to get help for their lives, providing a Divine Cure that offers life-long happiness.
Fr Jonathan uses his reporting skills to reveal why people are seeking counsel in the self-help world, and with his pastoral skills he offers a compassionate and truthful bridge back home from the unsatisfying world of self-help to the simplicity and depth of Christian spirituality. Whereas New Age spirituality fixates on our power to determine our destiny, he invites readers to become pro-active believers, trusters, and lovers of the ultimate Higher Power that will bring great healing and joy to those who follow.
Fr Jonathan Morris is the author of The Promise. He serves as a regular news contributor for
the Fox News Channel, where he offers ethical and moral commentary to regular news items.
He also serves as parochial vicar at the historic St Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York City.
