A DEEPER FAITH
A Journey Into Spirituality
By Jeff Golliher
“You have a journey to make, a sacred journey that I hope you will eventually come to understand as a path to follow. This will be the most important thing you have ever done. Call it the “call of God,” call it the “call of the Spirit,” call it the “call of the Great Mystery,” call it a “catastrophe,” call it whatever you like, but a “call” of some kind is hidden within the troubles.”
—from the first letter in A Deeper Faith
The term “spiritual journey” holds countless meanings and interpretations. For some it sounds inviting, for others intimidating, and for others mysterious. Author and Reverend Jeff Golliher, Ph.D. has served in the Anglican community in a variety of capacities, including more than ten years of service as canon for environmental justice and community development at St. John the Divine in New York City. During that time he has counseled parishioners through every step on the spiritual path. Now the respected priest offers guidance to a broader audience in his new book, A DEEPER FAITH: A Journey into Spirituality (a Tarcher/Penguin hardcover; on sale October 2008; $22.95).
