"O'Murchu at his cutting-edge finest."--US Catholic magazine

A practical guide for adults more interested in being and doing the truth than in reciting doctrinal statements about the truth.

From the bestselling author of Quantum Theology and numerous other books, The Meaning and Practice of Faith opens up new territory for adult faith development. Instead of hand-me-down rote answers, O'Murchu enables believers to discern what they are experiencing, and to develop a vocabulary to articulate their own process of faith in conversation with others. Topics explored include the meaning of adult faith, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, and faith in the furture. 

For those more interest in being and doing the truth than reciting doctrinal statements about the truth, the ideas outlined in this book will support and encourage adults in their on-going exploration of God and "the things of God" in the journey of faith and life.

Diarmuid O'Murchu, a social psychologist and a member of the Sacred Heart Missionary Order, is the author of a number of pioneering books that include Quantum Theology, Reclaiming Spirituality, Evolutionary Faith, The Transformation of Desire, Ancestral Grace, Adult Faith, In the Beginning Was the Spirit and God in the Midst of Change.  He is a a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, and lives in London.
