In this book, professor of religion at Rutgers University and a practicing psychotherapist, explains that the search for wholeness accelerates during middle age. He sees life as a spiritual journey during which individuals must "learn the art of making connections to a greater reality that gives us meaning and purpose." The teachings of the world's religions allude to this goal. Through case studies, Jones proves that individuals today are desperately seeking self-discovery in the midst of their experiences at work and their relationships with others. This new addition to the growing literature of spiritual psychology has much to say about the malaise of modernity, the drawbacks to unauthentic religion, and the widespread search for the sacred in everyday life.
