In Search of a Way
Two Journeys of Spiritual Discovery
Gerard W. Hughes
Paperback |192 pp |220 x 140 mm
'I don't think you know who you are.'
At first, Gerard Hughes had a ready answer: 'I am a Jesuit priest.' A year later the question exploded inside him. What is the meaning of Christian faith? What is the Church? What does it mean to be a Christian, a Jesuit? After living with these questions for seven years he was given a year off for study and began with two weeks on a desert island followed by a ten week walk to Rome.
The author of God of Surprises writes with great candour about his own inner journey and his walk to Rome: the 'outer' journey which helped to focus and clarify many of his spiritual perceptions. This is the revised edition of a book which will make you reflect deeply and laugh aloud; a unique blend of spiritual perception and hard-headed worldly wisdom.
