Why are people turning to things like New Age spirituality? Has the gospel nothing to offer them? Indeed it does, affirms Reiser, if we take the time to appreciate the story of Jesus in its challenging depth. Reiser's new book calls for a spirituality that includes a fresh way of conceiving and talking about our relationship to God, praying, and today's world.

Beleiving "that Christian spirituality is in transition... [and that] our sense of ourselves and of the mystery of God is undergoing profound change," Jesuit Reiser asserts "that tomorrow's prayer is going to be different," involving a closer relationship with the poor and outcast and a more pervasive relationship to God throughout daily life. Past liturgical and prayer forms will not be sufficient: "In truly liberated praying, the human intention always goes beyond the words we use to express ourselves, and therein lies the real prayer, the desire which runs 'too deep for words.'" Reiser discusses how the passion can be put back into Christian spirituality. Recommended for public libraries.
