Thomas Groome invites the reader to enter more deeply into the rich treasury of the spiritual resources of the Church’s faith, practice, and traditions. Our hunger for God draws us to community in church. Groome draws on multiple resources, from the scriptures to church documents and writings of holy men and women, to restore hope and draw those who have left back into community.
The author reflects on some of the human heart’s deepest longings: for fullness, for love, for happiness and a reliable way to achieve it, for freedom, and for a wholesome holiness of life toward authenticity as human beings. He proposes foundational Christian convictions concerning who and how God Is for us, about the historical Jesus as the Christ of faith, and of the sanctifying role of the Holy Spirit.
Then he turns to some distinguishing “Catholic” perspectives on Christian faith and how they might lend spiritual wisdom to help satisfy other pressing hungers of heart.
