Description

This book offers a challenging spirituality for a world filled with uncertainty and emotional struggle. Drawing from the work of ancient and contemporary thinkers, the author constructs a path to understanding oneself and understanding God in new and profound ways. This end is pursued by the use of spiritual exercises, mental practices which make changing one's way of life a real possibility. Further, by engaging directly with nothingness, meaninglessness, and the sheer lack of certain knowledge possessed by humans, an alternative form of spirituality is offered, one that prepares the contemporary Christian for all that life will bring. ""Matthew Kruger's brilliant book offers a new, personally engaging way of helping us think about what it means to be a Christian. He shows in a new way the powerful connection between loving God and loving neighbor and self. No other source offers these kinds of down-to-earth practices that integrate ancient Christian wisdom and contemporary culture. Anyone seeking to renew or deepen their faith can benefit from Spiritual Exercises for the Postmodern Christian."" --Stephen Pope, Boston College ""Matthew Kruger provides us a bold, post-modern Enchiridion, a handbook for following Christ in the twenty-first century. Kruger's powerful, directive voice leads us to practices that free us from tiresome interior monologues so as to listen to new ones, helping us to shed old selves so as to discover real ones. A demanding work that calls us to destroy what is not true and to dare to encounter what is. A practical work that Augustine and Erasmus would admire, as would Foucault and Hadot. Once you open it, you will want to consult time and again."" --James F. Keenan, S.J., Boston College Matthew Kruger is Assistant Professor of the Practice of Theology at Boston College, and an Episcopal priest in the diocese of Massachusetts.
