2015 ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC PUBLISHERS AWARD: THEOLOGY

Making sense of Christian faith through an understanding of spirituality.

A companion to Haight's Christian Spirituality for Seekers, this book links Christian vocabulary to a living spirituality that faces problems and asks questions from new perspectives.  For people who do not understand church doctrine or fail to see its bearing on their immediate lives, Christian spirituality can offer a more pertinent and fulfilling avenue toward faith.  In treating the Christian story of creation, the life of Jesus, the history of the church, eschatology, and more, Haight suggests ways in which spirituality, the cultivation of a relationship with the transcendent, by its very nature leads the practitioner to the key questions of theology.

Roger Haight, S.J., is a Jesuit priest and theologian.  A former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, he now teaches spirituality at Union Theological Seminary in New York City.  His previous books include Dynamics of Theology, Jesus Symbol of God, and Christian Spirituality for Seekers.

A skillful, profound, and wide-ranging book.
The volume offers a convincing and intelligible argument for Christianity in the modern world, given Haight's knowledge and understanding of theology as dynamics constantly in need of being recreated and renewed. I highly recommend the book for all who seek to make sense of their Christian faith amid ever-changing cultures, especially at the frontier of scientific research and discovery of the modern world.
...Haight's focus is on a distinctly Christian spirituality, or on a spirituality shaped by faith in Jesus Christ; and his understanding of religion is strong, involving social, institutional, doctrinal ritual and spiritual dimensions. Moreover, his understanding of spirituality is not limited to the experiential dimension, but includes a way of life and relating to the world and others.
