Publisher's Description

"God is at home. It is we who have gone out for a walk." --Meister Eckhart In Coming Home to Your True Self, Albert Haase invites you to return home--and shows you the way to get there. "Home," he writes, "is the sacrament of the present moment. It is only living right now, right here, that we discover our lives and this world awash in the grace of God." Using the story of the prodigal son to illustrate the far country of our false self and the way back home to our true self in Christ, Haase introduces us to the spiritual disciplines that can help us find the path home to the Father. Rich with insights from Haase's experience as a spiritual director, this is a book for the weary, the lost, the regretful and guilty--essentially, a book for us all. No matter how long you've walked, God is still home.

Editorial Reviews

"Haase is a wise and winsome guide for the spiritual life and his book is a helpful companion for the journey of coming home to the true self."
"It occurred to me while reading this lovely book that Albert Haase is a wise and seasoned Christian man. It comes through in page after page. This book is informed, insightful and practical, everything you want a book on spirituality to be. Haase knows the subject so well that he writes from the inside, making it simple and clear. Coming Home to Your True Self made me want to do what the title says—find my true self in God. But more than that, it helped me make progress to that end."
"I believe Coming Home to Your True Self will be a significant blessing for those who hunger for a genuine spiritual journey."
"Albert Haase has captured the simple essence of the spiritual life in this readable treatment that flows easily from Jesus' parable of the prodigal son. Illustrating his points with lively personal stories, Fr. Haase illuminates such classical spiritual terms as detachment, discernment and penance, making them live for the modern reader. He draws deeply on the teaching of Jesus and shows us how to 'come home' to our true selves. A fine guidebook for those who long for a deeper relationship with the Lord."
"This is practical and profound spiritual guidance! If we do not clarify some of these foundational issues, there will be no real flourishing in our search for God. Albert Haase makes very substantial ideas readable, personal and even adventuresome. What a good Franciscan!"
"Franciscan Albert Haase has done it again. Coming Home to Your True Self will receive a . . . warm reception from his readers, since it is steeped in the mystical tradition of the West from the Christian Scriptures to the desert dwellers of Egypt, and then through the Franciscans and the Dominicans, especially Meister Eckhart, which is becoming so popular with those seeking God in journeys of faith and love. It is highly recommended to all who seek the one thing necessary."
