Summary

Summary

To know God is the deepest human desire. And to get closer to him, we need the guidance of the women and men who have already found the way. The Journey Toward God serves us by bringing together in one book inspiring and instructive selections from the great writers who have mastered the spiritual life. Uniquely, the book draws from Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox writers, opening for us the diverse and rich treasures of Christian spirituality. A Servant Book.
