The Spiritual Challenge of Midlife : Crisis and Opportunity
In this concise volume the world-renowned spiritual master Anselm Grun invites readers to understand the twofold nature of midlife: on the one hand it is associated with a variety of problems or crises. On the other, it provides powerful opportunities for spiritual growth. This challenge--which is an inevitable work of God's grace--is an invitation into the fullness of our vocation. Anselm Grun brings together ancient and modern thought, including the spirituality of the medieval mystic Johannis Tauler and the psychology of Carl Jung, in order to foster greater self-understanding during midlife.

"This small volume is intended to encourage a new discovery of the religious path as a path of healing, as a remedy for the wounds which life inflicts on us and which break open so painfully in the crisis of midlife...[W]e must go ahead on a path on which we allow ourselves, together with psychology, to be led, ultimately, by Jesus Christ."
