Henri Nouwen, Dorothy Day, Mother Teresa, Thea Bowman, Thomas Merton, Oscar Romero, Mohandas Gandhi, Dom Helder Camara, Mother Maria Skobtsova, Madeleine Delbrel, Howard Thurman, Catherine de Hueck Doherty

This anthology highlights stories and essential teachings of a dozen modern spiritual masters, each of whom embodied a form of engaged spirituality--attuned both to God and the needs of a wounded world. Balancing contemplation and action, the mystical and the political, prayer and compassion, these figures--including some of the world?s best-known spiritual writers--represent a model of spirituality sensitive to tradition as well as the challenges of our time.
