Product Description

It may seem shocking to compare our relationship with God with the notion of "dating." But this book does. With fresh insight and a deep personal spirituality, Horan points out that the desire, uncertainty, and love we experience in relationship with God resembles our earthly relationships: We set aside time for the people who are most important to us. Horan reminds us that St. Francis of Assisi understood and even described his relationship with God in a similar way. Drawing from the Franciscan tradition, Dating God encourages us to see St. Francis's spirituality, challenging us to reexamine our own spirituality, prayer, and relationships, and inviting us into a more intimate relationship with our Creator. 3 compact discs/4 hours (approx.)

Publisher's Description

Dating God is not an answer book or a schema providing easy steps or instructions to have an ideal spiritual life. Rather, it offers a new look at the timeless condition of human longing for a deeper relationship with the Creator. And, contends Br. Dan, the Franciscan tradition, which includes Francis and Clare of Assisi and those men and women who followed them, is perhaps the best model for this deepening relational experience with the Divine.

Author Bio

He has lectured around the United States and Europe, currently serves on the Board of Directors of the International Thomas Merton Society, and is working on a Ph.D. in systematic theology at Boston College.

Editorial Reviews

Have you ever been on a date with God? It may seem a strange concept, but Horan, a young Franciscan friar and popular lecturer, invites consideration of this question, especially for young adult believers. To be on a date with God, requires, first and foremost, that technology and many other distractions of contemporary life be set aside in order to delve deeply into the relationship. This is not an unrealistic invitation--the author does not expect anyone to enter a hermitage to contemplate for weeks. It is, however, an invitation to prioritize our spiritual life and to look for brief moments to become more aware of God's presence. The author does a great service by revealing the rich and beautiful Franciscan tradition for a new generation of believers. There is much to learn from St. Francis, St. Clare, and their followers, and Horan, through weaving in popular culture references and using clear, straightforward language, will undoubtedly reach many young adults....The joyful call to prayer and reflection...will have a wide appeal. Publishers Weekly, January 9, 2012

"Dating God explores how to maintain a loving, lifelong relationship with God, other human beings, and all creatures-a relationship that begins with taking the time to go on a date with God." - Murray Bodo, O.F.M., author, Francis: The Journey and the Dream

"…a fresh new voice in Christian spirituality who reminds us that the Creator is very active in every moment of our lives and shows how our lives are filled with, as the Franciscans say, pax et bonum: peace and goodness." - James Martin, author, The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
