Called To Holiness: Spirituality for Catholic Women
"Discovering who we are as women in God's sight is an amazing journey toward truth and love. We make sense of God as we reflect, walk, drive, ponder and question the meaning of our lives as Christians."
The moment is ripe for ordinary Catholic women to "do Christian theology." Times such as these challenge us to be holy, to be alive in the Spirit, to summon the energy and make the commitment to help one another grow spiritually. Now is the time for Catholic women to make sense of God.
In this introductory volume to the groundbreaking eight-volume series, Called to Holiness: Spirituality for Catholic Women, Catholic theologian Elizabeth Dreyer encourages us to acknowledge our dignity, harvest our gifts and empower all women in church and society. Dreyer helps us to shape what we think about God, justice, love, prayer, family life, the destiny of humanity and the entire universe.
