Product Description

In this reissue of a 1990 book that was ahead of its time, Palmer shares his own search for a spirituality that celebrates the active life, rather than making it seem second-best to a life of contemplation. What sort of spirituality can nourish us as we try to discern what is right action in our work, in our creative efforts, and in our relationships?

Publisher's Description

The Active Life is Parker J. Palmer's deep and graceful exploration of a spirituality for the busy, sometimes frenetic lives many of us lead. Telling evocative stories from a variety of religious traditions, including Taoist, Jewish, and Christian, Palmer shows that the spiritual life does not mean abandoning the world but engaging it more deeply through life-giving action. He celebrates both the problems and potentials of the active life, revealing how much they have to teach us about ourselves, the world, and God.
