Published by RowmanLittlefield
In the United States, against the background of secularization, the religious atmospheres have changed radically in the past 40 years. In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Immigration and Naturalization Act, which opened America's doors to immigrants from all over the world. As a result, approximately one million immigrants legally enter the United States each year and bring with them religions traditions such as Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Catholic Spirituality and Prayer in the Secular City presents the role of religion and spirituality in a rapidly changing religious scenario. Author Robert A. Burns explores ways Catholics have been called upon to develop their spiritual lives in the most religious pluralistic society that has ever existed. Burns acknowledges the struggle that many people face when seeking a deeper spirituality and do not now where or how to begin, and seeks to guide readers through the confusion and back to the meaning of spirituality. This book leads readers through the various approaches taken to achieving a deeper spiritual life by presenting and discussing the religious philosophies of spiritual leaders throughout history. Ultimately, Catholic Spirituality and Prayer in the Secular City provides readers with the ability to see themselves in a proper context by offering a new avenue for deeper spirituality.
