As the world grows increasingly complex, as society becomes more and more fractured, as from day to day and even moment to moment basic attitudes and convictions shake and personal loyalties shift, human beings need more, not less, good counsel for Christian living. This book reaches into the treasury of Anglican spirituality and draws out pearls of wisdom for today's needs. Here the reader will discover spiritual guides - both clergy and laity - who speak directly to their own hearts, minds, and souls. The Anglican tradition has shown an abiding concern for a holy living that leads to a holy dying; this book offers earnest, practical devotion to inspire and to instruct the Christian pilgrim in the path of discipleship. Here readers will find not simply a general collection of spiritual writings but rather direct words of spiritual counsel. Moreover, readers will encounter passages selected for both their authoritative content and their surpassing beauty. This book takes seriously the Anglican emphasis on a form of religion that quickens the mind, forms the conscience, guides the will, and lifts the spirit.
