Here are the notes from the back cover.

Rather than offer rote answers, educator Diarmuid O’Murchuu empowers individuals with a renewed responsibility to resolve life’s questions with a growing wisdom that can be checked, challenged and validated in spiritual accompaniment or group process. This is quite new territory for adult faith development and the ideas outlined in this book will support and encourage adults in their ongoing exploration of faith and meaning.

Long recognized worldwide for his innovative and daring insights on the connections between Christian theology and other humanistic disciplines, Diarmui O’Murchu’s work will inspire and sustain the spiritual Journey of people in all walks of life and all parts of the globe.
