People today are searching for meaning and purpose. They know that something is missing in their lives and long to fill this void. Many books on spirituality attempt to fill this need, and the approaches are nearly as numerous as the searchers themselves. Such a widespread desire in the human heart speaks to the spiritual hunger at the core of each one of us. It is this hunger of both the head and the heart that Michael Demkovich sees as key to spiritual integration. In this volume readers will rediscover that "there really is something more to life, and spirituality meets the mystery of this something more." A genuine spirituality must address two essential characteristics:

It cannot be meant for an elite few, yet it must answer life's toughest and most basic questions: How did we get here? What are we destined to become?It recognizes the crucial role of religious tradition and community; it is not merely eclectic and individualized therapy, focused only on "my" well-being.

Retrieving a theological understanding of the soul, Demkovich explores an animating spirituality that integrates faith and life, the moral and the intellectual, into an animated spirituality that makes life meaningful and satisfying. "If you find something is missing in the very soul of your being, then I am certain that this book has something for you."

When I first received a copy of this book from the publisher, I was a bit intimidated. To his credit, the author admits up front that the first section of the book is, in fact, a bit hard to grasp. And I'm not sure exactly how much I did grasp. But reading it is well worth it.

Demkovich makes several great observations about spirituality throughout the book. First, he correctly points out that alot of people mistake spirituality as a "private possesion" of people, (pg.4) when in fact it's really all about community.

Second, in discussing the ascetical approach to spirituality, the author develops a great section on how the approach almost seems to take on some athletic and "combative" characteristics. (pg.70) I found this to be one of the most interesting parts of the book.

The section I enjoyed most is the one about mysticism, and how Demkovich then describes three different types of mysticism.. Visionary, Affective, and Speculative. Each one is unique and the author gives examples of people from the past for each category. Again, well thought out and developed.

The book is really about developing a Christian spirituality that is animated, come to life so to speak. It's written from a Catholic point of view, but as a Protestant I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and am sure it would benefit anyone wanting to pursue and develop their own "animated" spirituality for every day life.
