Publication date: 2012-03-31
Number of pages: 320
Stepping into Mystery is an ideal guide for anyone seeking a deeper spirituality. Williams divides the journey and the book into four sections to guide the reader:
- The Path of Contemplation: where the journey must begin – pushing through fear to clarity and beyond.
- Being Rooted, Being Attentive: layering some principles of Zen Buddhism translated into a Christian context, where awareness is further developed;
- The Rules of Discernment: using the Ignatian way to assist in making good decisions that will enable the reader to draw closer to God;
- Redeeming Time: moving beyond modern-day self-absorption to a more outward-looking approach.
Building on his past writing, Williams provides a clear, if challenging, path to understanding the questions that will guide readers’ thoughts and actions as they look to build a spiritual life.
