Description


This rich volume collects 47 sermons by the late priest and theologian Father Robert D. Crouse – one of the finest contemplative theological minds of our age. They are arranged to follow the principal celebrations of the ancient Christian Year – from Advent to Pentecost, while a second, companion volume (The Soul’ s Pilgrimage Volume II: The Descent of the Dove and the Spiritual Life) completes the year – so they can be read in step with the liturgical seasons. A Preface by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams highlights some of the connecting threads of the sermons – in particular the theme of Divine Friendship offered by the Gospel. The inspired clarity of these sermons brings to life the perennial truth of the Church year as a path of holiness for all believers. This is a volume for those who want to enter into the pattern of spiritual growth and nourishment that the Christian year has always made available but is here renewed for our time.
