More Spirituality


This gentle yet probing primer on practical spirituality invites us to reflect and pray about our call to be followers of Jesus. Structured around six important, sometimes difficult questions: What is God like? How does God see us and treat us? What does it mean to be a disciple? Does God have a plan for us? How should we pray? How do we serve God in the Church?

With insight and humor Bishop Niederauer explores biblical images of the Christian life, offering a joyful spirituality centered on Jesus. He challenges us to grow, invites us to pray, and reminds us that we are indeed the cherished children of God, who never tires of polishing and refining us.


"A truly contemporary spiritual classic."

"An insightful series of meditations that lead us ever more deeply into the circle of God's love, mercy, healing, and compassion. A truly contemporary spiritual classic."

Cardinal Roger M. Mahoney, Archbishop of Los Angeles

"Sterling silver not stainless steel."

"A gem! Bishop Niederauer moves us to deepen our interior lives as disciples and become more prayerful, effective ministers to and with others. After reading this we will want to be 'sterling silver' and never settle for 'stainless steel'."

Sr. Anne Bryan Smollin, Author of Tickle Your Soul
