This valuable book, by a well-known scholar and respected authority on the consecrated life, is an initial introduction and a sure guide to the world of the consecrated life. The first part of the book sketches the theological and spiritual outlines of the choice for religious life, and draws from various historic events and experiences of the search for God throughout history.
The second part examines the most salient biblical references for the consecrated life, followed by its theological foundations according to the mind of the Church, from Vatican II through John Paul the Great's Apostolic Exhortation, Vita Consecrata. A great resource for initial and ongoing formation, as well as for theology courses.
