Publisher's Synopsis
This thoughtful anthology collects the magazine’s best writings on Christianity, featuring articles from Thomas Merton, Elaine Pagels, Philip Zaleski, Thomas Keating, and 20 other authors who vividly explore what it means to be a Christian. The collection combines poetry and folklore with incisive interviews and cogent essays on topics such as the search for self, attention and remembrance, transformational knowledge, and worldly and divine works.

A lavish, full-color, 16-page set of plates brilliantly conveys the rich variety within the tradition. From full works of great intricacy to passages of pure insight, The Inner Journey: Views from the Christian Tradition spans the tradition’s greatest trends. For readers looking for an introduction to Christianity or those seeking to expand their knowledge of it, the journey in this book inspires and enlightens.

Excerpt
"But we do not live out of time. Moments of ecstasy, however significant and profound they may be, must pass, and their memory alone cannot sustain our everyday spiritual lives. We must find a way of living eternity within the dimension of time. For most of us this means a very great struggle. It means the breaking down of protective walls we have built around our time-bound egos and opening them to what is beyond: not only in moments of ecstasy but every moment of our lives. In other words, it means the painful process of learning to love. Truth, beauty, joy — the presence of God — can only be found in a living encounter with another, in a relationship of love."
