In this concise volume the world-renowned spiritual master, Anselm Grün, invites readers to understand the twofold nature of midlife: on the one hand it is associated with a variety of problems or "crises." On the other, it provides powerful opportunities for spiritual growth. This challenge--which is an inevitable work of God's grace--is an invitation into the fullness of our vocation. Anselm Grün brings together ancient and modern thought, including the spirituality of the medieval mystic Johannes Tauler and the psychology of Carl Jung, in order to foster greater self-understanding during midlife. From the Introduction: "This small volume is intended to encourage a new discovery of the religious path as a path of healing, as a remedy for the wounds which life inflicts on us and which break open so painfully in the crisis of midlife. [W]e must go ahead on a path on which we allow ourselves, together with psychology, to be led, ultimately, by Jesus Christ." Paperback
