In our chaotic world, people from all walks of life hunger for a sense of direction and purpose. This is especially true for lay and religious Christians seeking resources to live with faith and work for social justice. But too often, Christians lose sight of the treasures we inherit from scripture and tradition. In "Can Religious Life Be Prophetic?," Michael Crosby, a Franciscan priest and authoritative voice in Catholic renewal, helps us rediscover the abundant gifts of Christianity. By making the great prophetic voices of scripture come alive he shows us how we can renew our spiritual lives, invigorate our communities, and revitalize the church as a whole.
