From the Inside Flap:

Many Americans are searching for a meaningful spirituality to soften the harsh realities they face in their working and personal lives. Men and women of faith, who have trouble connecting their faith commitments to everyday life, will find in Answers from Within an affirmation of the relevance of religious faith to practical realities and a spirituality that can close the gap between the material world and the world of the spirit. From the unique background of an economist, professor, Jesuit priest, corporate board member, and former CEO of The Catholic University of America, William J. Byron, S.J., explains the revolutionary potential of a faith-based spirituality for coping with reversals in work and life. He builds on what he calls "The Pauline Criteria" (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control) to show how these biblically based virtues can become pillars of support for anyone caught in the uncertainties of "the human predicament." The "answers" in Answers from Within offer a blueprint for making the workplace more humane and respectful of human dignity. They demonstrate that the person who possesses these answers can walk with God through all the challenges of life.
