Publisher's Summary

Beloved author Ronald Rolheiser continues his search for an accessible and penetrating Christian spirituality in this highly anticipated follow-up to the contemporary classic, The Holy Longing. With his trademark acuity, wit, and thoughtfulness, Rolheiser shows how identifying and embracing discipleship will lead to new heights of spiritual awareness and maturity. He takes us on a journey through the dark night of the senses and of the spirit. Here, we experience the full gamut of human life, pleasure and fervor, disillusionment and boredom. But, as Rolheiser explains, when we embrace the struggle and yearning to know God, we can experience too a profound re-understanding of our daily lives.“What lies beyond the essentials, the basics?” Rolheiser writes. “Where do we go once some of the basic questions in our lives have been answered, or at least brought to enough peace that our focus can shift away from ourselves to others? Where do we go once the basic questions in our lives are no longer the restless questions of youthful insecurity and loneliness? Who am I? Who loves me? How will my life turn out? Where do we go once the basic question in life becomes: How can I give my life away more purely, and more meaningfully? How do I live beyond my own heartaches, headaches, and obsessions so as to help make other peoples’ lives more meaningful?”As the poet Rainer Maria Rilke suggests, “Live the questions now.” In Sacred Fire, Rolheiser’s deeply affecting prose urges us on in pursuit of the most holy of all passions - a deep and lasting intimacy with God.

    "A must read for the mature Christian"

    Inspirational and challenging to the modern day Christian to deepen their relationship with God. The narrator style was similar to that of the author which made it an easy listen.

    "Same old... not much new for me...."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It would be good read for baby christian. Not much new for Growth in the meat of the word.


    What could Ronald Rolheiser have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not much good book for different crowd


    Would you be willing to try another one of Douglas James’s performances?

    I would have to have a recommendation that interest me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sacred Fire?

    N/A did not finish book


    Any additional comments?

    Did not finish book......
