Thirsty for God: A Brief History of Christian Spirituality

Synopsis

"This accessible and engaging history provides an excellent primer on the two-millennium quest for union with God, a thirst at the center of Christian life and practice. This new edition not only updates all the chapters and features but also adds more material on the spirituality of Jesus, medieval women mystics, and contemporary spirituality. Short excerpts from primary sources, a glossary, a time line, maps, a bibliography, and a set of spiritual exercises heighten the book's usefulness for students and lay persons alike."
