About: Many people have become disillusioned with formal religion, yet they express a deep desire for spiritual fulfillment. The author discusses the meaning of spirituality and goes on to demonstrate how spirituality can impact on everyday themes such as sexuality and global commerce. The final part of the book contains suggestions as to what the Church can do to restore itself as the main medium of spirituality in modern society.
