Rolheiser makes sense of what is a frequently misunderstood word: spirituality. Spirituality is not something out there, but means a restlessness that is deep in all of us. How we channel that restlessness is what separates a healthy spirituality from an unhealthy one. Above all, this is an apologia for God and the Church in a world which often doubts the credibility of both.
Ronald Rolheiser is a Roman Catholic priest and member of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. In addition to being a popular speaker and writer whose books (over ten in print) are popular throughout the world and whose weekly column is carried by more than seventy newspapers worldwide, he is president of the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas.
Rolheiser is among the most popular and inclusive spiritual writers today. Although rooted in the Catholic faith, he is able to transcend denominational boundaries and religious language to appeal to both practicing Christians and unaffiliated seekers.
