Engage the Spirit and Truth of the Active LifeWhat spiritual sources can we draw on to receive guidance for-and from-our lives in the world of action?The Active Life is Parker J. Palmera??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.
