Summary : Mussar is an illuminating, approachable, and highly practical set of teachings for cultivating personal growth and spiritual realization in the midst of day-to-day life. Here is an accessible and inspiring introduction to this Jewish spiritual path, which until lately has been best known in the world of Orthodox Judaism. The core teaching of Mussar is that our deepest essence is inherently pure and holy, but this inner radiance is obscured by extremes of emotion, desire, and bad habits. Our work in life is to uncover the brilliant light of the soul. The Mussar masters developed transformative teachings and practices—some of which are contemplative, some of which focus on how we relate to others in daily life—to help us to heal and refine ourselves.

Summary : Everyday Holiness presents the spiritual journey to and with Christ as possible, noble, challenging, and rewarding. It describes the many aspects of holiness and how it is essential to our growth in Christ. Holiness is the most important developmental area in life and the greatest goal to which we can aspire. The Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales wrote: "All of us can attain Christian virtue and holiness no matter in what condition of life we live and no matter what our life's work may be." This book should be read slowly, prayerfully, and seriously. It invites us to ponder the meaning of life and how holiness benefits every aspect of our church, our society, and ourselves. Because all good things lead to God, the book infuses a deeper meaning into the ordinary circumstances of daily life, thus showing how holiness is not a static reality but a dynamic force that transforms every aspect of our day. The book is replete with concrete examples and practical illustrations that show how living holiness is possible today. Indeed, holiness is our greatest need, deepest joy, and hardest challenge. Everyday Holiness is for everyone who wants to love God more and serve him better.

Summary : A look at the practical meaning of holiness for today’s disciples. George Lyons seeks to bring the power of the scriptural theme of holiness to everyday life. Believing Romans 12:1-2 and Ephesians 4:1-6 to be the key passage to the understanding of holy living in the marketplace, the author guides the reader across the bridge of the centuries-from understanding to the meaning of the ancient text to the application of it’s principles in today’s world. Dr. Lyons suggests that perhaps we have spent too much time encouraging individuals to embark on the journey of holiness and too little time describing the landmarks along the way. Join him as he explores intriguing points of interest on the journey. Paper.

Summary : Project Holiness: Marriage as a Workshop for Everyday Saints celebrates the holiness of the ordinary and the goodness of married discipleship. Vatican II’s Lumen Gentium reminds Catholics of the universal call to holiness. Each person—lay and ordained alike—shares this vocation to holiness, this call to sainthood. For most adult Catholics, it is within the context of vowed, married life that the joyful and challenging path to sainthood is traveled. Based on an extensive qualitative study of long-lasting Catholic marriages, Bridget Burke Ravizza and Julie Donovan Massey examine the virtues, values, and practices that ground flourishing marriages and lead married partners to holiness.

Summary : Jewish by birth, though from a secular family, Alan Morinis explored Hinduism and Buddhism as a young man. But in 1997, in the face of personal crisis, he turned to his Jewish heritage for guidance. In his reading he happened upon a Jewish spiritual tradition called Mussar. Gradually he realized that he had stumbled upon an insightful discipline for self-development, complete with meditative, contemplative, and other well-developed transformative practices designed to penetrate the deepest roots of the inner life. Eventually reaching the limits of what he could learn on his own, he decided to seek out a Mussar teacher. This was not an easy task, since almost the entire world of the Mussar tradition had been wiped out in the Holocaust. In time, he found an accomplished master who stood in an unbroken line of transmission of the Mussar tradition, and who lived in the center of a community of Orthodox Jews on Long Island. This book tells the story of Morinis’s journey to meet his teacher and what he learned from him, revealing the central teachings and practices that are the spiritual treasury and legacy of Mussar.

Summary : If John Wesley walked down the streets of New York or London or Toronto today, he would say there is no difference between the requirements of his day and ours. In Wesley's view, Perfect Love automatically affects the way we interact with our fellowman. It influences the way we price and pay for our goods and services, pay our taxes, give to the poor. It alters the manner in which we seek recreation and how we treat our family members. It holds sway over everyday life. Above all, he insisted that the doctrine of the holiness people of his day (the Methodists) was nothing more nor less than the fulfillment of the two greatest commandments of scripture - that we should "love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbor as ourself." In so doing, we live the life of "holiness in the midst of everyday life."
