Overview

While many classic spiritual teachings emphasize the beauty of contemplation, lay Christians must live “in the world,” making practical judgments in private and public spheres. Wolfteich offers dynamic and inspiring models of modern day leaders whose conscience of their faith directs their live's decisions.
