Discovering the Spirit in the City

How can we re-discover the Heavenly City here and now? This is a wide-ranging exploration of the practical applications of spirituality in an urban environment. In an increasingly urban society, we are losing touch with our roots. There is a hunger to engage with the spiritual implications of this, and to enrich our appreciation of the spiritual potential of urban spaces. Discovering the Spirit in the City brings together established authors with new voices to explore ways in which the concrete, consumerist and cosmopolitan context we inhabit can be re-enchanted with a sense of the sacred. The international flavour of modern urban living is reflected in inter-faith and non-British perspectives. Each chapter is followed by a specially commissioned poem by the Irish poet, Padraig Twomey, providing the reader with an opportunity to reflect spiritually on urban living.
