With today's accelerated pace of life, preoccupation with careers, and family demands, there is little time for celebrating our humanity--and even less time for seeking God. So how does a twentieth-century believer set about living as a Christian in such a society?
The writings of devout pilgrims such as Brother Lawrence, Thomas á Kempis, and St. Augustine refocus our attention on the basics of the Christian journey. Retold in the language and setting of our world today, these classics offer timely messages of startling relevance to Christians and those interested in Christianity.
