The shattered lantern : rediscovering the felt presence of God by Ronald Rolheiser ( Book )
2 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
"Rolheiser addresses the prevalent agnosticism that blocks our awareness of the holy. In our culture, he says, we have 'murdered' God. 'We have icons in our churches but not in our hearts.' His goal is to reawaken our sense of God all around us ... [H]e offers a prescription to keep our lamps lit and spark our sense of wonder. 'Faith is deeper, ' he says, 'than imagination and feeling.' In the past, three contemplative traditions within western Christian thought nourished people's souls and gave them a sense of wonder. He sees the 'mystical presence of God' as being dependent upon 'purity of heart' and being free of 'unhealthy narcissism, excessive pragmatic concern and restless distractions.' Rolheiser suggests that the writings of the mystics can lead to transformation. He concludes by giving seven contemporary spiritual exercises that may allow us to breathe in God more deeply."--Container.
