Annotation
The religious sense by Luigi Giussani( )

97 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 1,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Religious Sense, the fruit of many years of dialogue with students, is an exploration of the search for meaning in life. Luigi Giussani shows that the nature of reason expresses itself in the ultimate need for truth, goodness, and beauty. These needs constitute the fabric of the religious sense, which is evident in every human being everywhere and in all times. So strong is this sense that it leads one to desire that the answer to life's mystery might reveal itself in some way." "Giussani challenges us to penetrate the deepest levels of experience to discover our essential selves, breaking through the layers of opinions and judgments that have obscured our true needs. Asserting that all the tools necessary for self-discovery are inherent within us, he focuses primarily on reason, not as narrowly defined by modern philosophers but as an openness to existence, a capacity to comprehend and affirm reality in all of its dimensions."--Jacket

Why the church? by Luigi Giussani( )

40 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giussani begins by focusing on the Church as a community composed of people who are aware of themselves as defined by the gift of the Spirit, from which they derive a new conception of existence, the fruit of conversion. He then describes the Church's developing self-awareness of its dual elements of the human and divine. Concerned with verifying the Church's claim to embody Christ, Giussani situates the locus of verification in human experience, arguing that a different type of life is born in those who try to live the life of the Church." "Why the Church? is a seminal study that will engage both the scholar and the general reader."--BOOK JACKET
The journey to truth is an experience by Luigi Giussani( )

24 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a young priest, Luigi Giussani was troubled by Catholicism's inability to effectively deal with secularism or laicism. In 1954 he began to develop a vision of faith rooted in experience. His ideas resonated with students and led to the birth of the Gioventù Studentesca (Student Youth) movement. Known today as Communion and Liberation, the movement is flourishing in Italy and around the world, including Canada, the United States, Brazil, Uganda, and Britain

The risk of education : discovering our ultimate destiny by Luigi Giussani( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fundamental idea in the education of the young is the fact that it is through the younger generations that society successively rebuilds itself; therefore, the primary concern of society is to teach the young. What does education consist of, and how does it take place? This book explores what is at our origins as human beings. It presents the argument that without the fundamental factors of tradition -- something lived out in the present that proposes and gives its reasons and criticism, asking yourself why? -- the young person is merely a fragile leaf separated from its branch
