Product Description

Are you willing to step outside your comfort zone and experience the adventures of a hero? In this adventurous quest of God, you will encounter exhilarating mountain hikes, cave exploration in the bitter winter, and dancing around a fire.

This novelized description of the spiritual life is compelling and easy to read; it is a modern-day hero's journey. It relates the tale of a young man named Austin's conversion thanks to the efforts of a hard-working inner-city priest named Fr. Max, who urges nine college students to take a leap of faith on the road to holiness.

Austin travels to a remote monastery where he meets Fr. Aelred, a Benedictine hermit who leads him on the spiritual journey, as his friends depart for England, Ireland, and New York City.  Fr. Dwight Longenecker reveals a twelve-part plan for unity with God through a fictional conversation that parallels the traditional purgative, illuminative, and unitive stages of the spiritual life.

Austin will help you learn the following:

  • How our wounds and weaknesses can lead to growth
  • Different forms of Catholic spirituality
  • How to stay the course and win the great prize of becoming a saint
  • How to surrender to God and answer His call to perfection
  • Why Confession and the cultivation of virtue are at the very heart of spiritual growth

Young adults, casual Catholics, and people further along in their spiritual lives can all benefit from this book. The Way of the Wilderness Warrior opens the treasure house of Catholic spirituality in a unique, uplifting, and interesting way by drawing on the knowledge of the Carmelite saints, St. Benedict, St. John Cassian, and other spiritual masters.

The best part of this book is that it will teach you how to constantly pray and how to discern God's will for your life. You'll be motivated to become a wandering warrior in these trying times and go on your own wilderness voyage to the Promised Land.
