In this, his follow up work to The Holy Longing, Rolheiser shows how identifying and embracing discipleship will lead to new heights of spiritual awareness and maturity. Rolheiser leads the reader through stories from scripture to give relevance to life in our time and place. This book can be described as one that provides a way of coming to know God who desires even more to know you.
First published in 2003, this book is the inspirational story of Father Chris who has gone that extra mile for those shunned by society. He sees in the homeless [for whatever reason] a beautiful soul worth saving. Reading such a book in this Year of Mercy may challenge the notion that communities are often judged by their treatment of the most vulnerable.
