This is a tool kit and manual for encounters with the Divine and the challenges of the Christian faith. The author is a Catholic priest and prolific writer of books of contemporary prayers, rituals, parables, stories, and spiritual reflections. Here he uses the metaphor of mountain climbing as a key to personal renewal. This Lenten expedition offers meditations on cleansing, nonviolence, reconciliation, and an all-embracing spirituality for the 21st century. Hays includes a blue ribbon bookmark to help the reader ward off evil. He also provides plenty of food for thought for this 40-day trek.
