Item Description...
What do we really want? Internationally noted theologian Mary Grey believes we have gotten out of touch with our deepest desires. Trapped by the seductions of the marketplace, addicted to more and more, our culture has acquiesced in global capitalism's most problematic characteristics, including widespread poverty and global maldistribution of resources. Grey's hopeful book argues that there is a deeper language of desire that plumbs to what humanity really wants. Emergent in story and myth and symbol, these sacred longings can be seen in the simple yet profound elements--within and beyond Christianity--or water, light, and sacred space. Getting back in touch with our sacred longings entails a spiritual quest--a kind of ecomystical renewal--that can transform our desire, enliven our communities, simplify our lifestyles, and ultimately rekindle our global prospects.

Publishers Description
Noted theologian Mary Grey believes we have gotten out of touch with our deepest desires and that this has caused us to acquiesce in global capitalism's most problematic characteristics. Story and symbol, she argues, can put us back in touch with our ''sacred longings.'' Focusing on such simple yet profound symbols as water, light, and sacred space, she tries to re-instill a spiritual quest. In the end, she envisions spirituality - a kind of ecomystical renewal - as an element in the transformation of desire, lived out in Christian community. Part One examines how our culture has lost heart; Part Two analyzes our restless hearts; Part Three asks us to take heart and rekindle our thirst for righteousness.
