Far from it. We hardly intend even to become middle-aged. Instead we plan to live in some eternal now which will lead on to something better, something more complete than what we had before. ... Sometime in our spiritual travels, as a complete surprise, we notice it has become winter. ... This change has occurred, it seems, without preparation, without fair warning. So Emilie Griffin begins, taking us on an exploration of the second half of life. It is a book filled with wonderful, rich story, wisdom from those who have gone before us and carefully crafted spiritual exercises. She explores relocation, vocational changes, losing her mother, and negotiating and renegotiating her relationships with her grown children. The journey of our later years is a wondrous voyage, though turbulent at points. But it is the journey we have been preparing for all along. "Emilie Griffin, a writer of intelligent spirituality, writes with compelling wisdom ... bright with the grace that flows from a fruitful life." Luci Shaw, author of The Crime of Living Cautiously "Griffin celebrates the truth and beauty of becoming older and wiser in a culture that abhors aging. As a result this book enriches not only those moving into their later years, but also the ones who are watching those they love grow older." Jan Johnson, author of Abundant Simplicity "I loved this book! It is what can happen when a gifted writer and seasoned spiritual director crafts a very personal meditation on getting older." Gary W. Moon, author of Apprenticeship with Jesus "This is hard-won spiritual wisdom, useful to young and old alike." Eugene H. Peterson, translator of The Message

Breathing Under Water

The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is America's most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality, says Richard Rohr. He makes a case that the Twelve Steps relate well to Christian teaching and can rescue people who are drowning in addiction and may not even realize it. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to breathe under water and discover God's love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Rohr identifies the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps, connecting The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the gospel. He draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those who counsel and live with people with addictive behavior. Rohr offers encouragement for becoming interiorly alive and inspiration for making one's life manageable for dealing with the codependence and dysfunction (sin) rampant in our society.

Spirituality and the Awakening Self

Being human is a lifelong journey of becoming. This journey defines our humanity, for it is a journey toward our source and our fulfillment, described in Christian theology as union with God. If we remain open to God as our sense of self awakens, we experience a deeper consciousness of being in him. The self that emerges during this process is larger, more enlightened, and whole. David Benner, who has spent thirty-five years integrating psychology and spirituality, presents psychological insights in a readable fashion to offer readers a deeper understanding of the self and its spiritual development. Drawing on a broad range of Christian traditions, Benner shows that the transformation of self is foundational to Christian spirituality. This book will appeal to readers interested in a psychologically grounded, fresh exploration of Christian spirituality; professionals engaged in pastoral care, counseling, and spiritual direction; and students in ministry development and spiritual formation courses. Questions and answers for individual or group use are included at the end of each chapter.
