Join Alex McManus for interviews with activists, missional practioners, and thought leaders from around the world. Alex interviews Phileena Heuertz, author of "Pilgrimage of a Soul: Contemplative Spirituality for the Active Life", published by InterVarsity Press, July 2010. Activists often see contemplation as a luxury, the sort of thing that must necessarily be laid aside in the quest to see the world set aright. But in Pilgrimage of a Soul we see that contemplation is essential--not only to a life of sustained commitment to the justice and righteousness of God, but to the growth in faith and discipleship that the Holy Spirit beckons each of us to. Tracing seven movements from a kind of sleepfulness to a kind of wakefulness, Heuertz shows us that life is a journey that repeats itself as we are led by Christ deeper and deeper into our true selves and a truer knowledge of God.
