Paths in Spirituality
by John MacQuarrie




Overview -
his splendid book from an Anglican professor of divinity reveals the fruitful tension between horizontal' outgoing Christianity and the perennial human need for a spirituality drawing on the rich resources of the Christian tradition, firmly based on the eucharist. It should help all of us to see and preserve the richness of our heritage ... Dr Macquarrie reassesses traditional Christian prayer and worship and takes as his thesis that a fully human, fully personal being is one in whom the religious dimension has been developed ' (Catholic Herald).

The basic theme throughout is the contention that Christian spirituality is composed of three elements - doctrine, worship and deed: theology, prayer and action; and that the lack of any or the over-emphasis of any at the expense of the rest, inevitably involves a distorted spirituality and in the end a false religion ... Very highly recommended' (Church Times).

This second edition has been revised and updated where necessary, and three new chapters have been added, on 'Eucharistic Sacrifice', 'Confession and Absolution', and 'Rest and Restlessness in Christian Spirituality'.
