His constant purpose is to present a theologically sound, easily understood, and extremely practical expression of the certain doctrines of the life of the soul in terms that have meaning for less speculative minds and are solidly grounded on the approved data of pschological studies. Stressing the "personal character" of grace and the immanenceo of the supernatural. The author shows how the supernatural is a dynamic personal relationship with the Three Divine Persons in and through Christ. True personality development consists in the transformation of human desires, needs, and talents in an imitation of Christ under the influence of the Holy Spirit. This personal encounter with Christ is the source of sanctity, dedication, prayer and the apostolate in the face of the greatest obstacles, sin and psychological disorders.Readers will find theology applied to daily life in a manner that inspires peace of heart and security and presages a second spring of renewed growth and spiritual fervor after a wintry season of discouragement.The book was written for dissatisfied priests, religious and laymen who live in Christ and dream of recovering dreams of doing more fo God of closer union with Him, but are uneasy because their lives seem very ordinary and lacking in generosity....

    I stumbled on this book during a Lifeline Bookfest in Brisbane and I love it so dearly that I could not afford to lend it to anyone. As a survivor of domestic violence and experienced an epiphany in 1987 after my divorce, I did a lot of soul searching including reading as many books as I could.This book helped me to be able to understand more the integration of spiritual theology and psychology in mental health awareness. Since I suffered from depression prior to a hysterectomy in 1998, undetected until 2001, recovered in 2005 after resorting to Chinese naturopathy, I am also very keen in reducing the stigma on mental health problems and disorders.The synthesis between theology and psychology in this book helped me understand more of my spirituality, a mixture with the eastern and the western context.
