:
Why Christian spirituality must be "caught" rather than "taught."


We speak of spirituality as a "journey," which implies not only a destination toward which we travel, but countless adventures encountered along the way. The journey is the destination-both at once. We may all be trying to get to the heart of God, but there are infinite ways to get there.


Can wisdom collected along the pilgrim path even be captured in words, codified into a book? Probably not. And why do the wisest books refuse to offer glib formulas or step-by-step instructions for happiness or enlightenment? Why are the great spiritual classics mostly just an invitation to keep our eyes, ears-and especially hearts-open?


Because we're often stumbling on miracles while we're looking for something else.


Using engaging and disarming stories from his own life, Carl McColman, a leading author of books in spirituality, gently leads readers toward a recognition that although the wisdom of the past is worth reading, hearing or reading others' experience of God is ultimately no substitute for opening our own eyes, ears, and hearts to God.
