Words of Spirituality
Full Product Description
Enzo Bianchi has tried to let himself be guided by the biblical and patristic tradition in Words of Spirituality, his response to the requests of those who ask him for ‘a reason for his hope’. These ‘words’ of Fr Bianchi are not listed alphabetically or by theme. Rather they are arranged to take us on a journey. Through the use of allusions and cross-references, one term evokes another, explains it in part, and sets aside some elements of its definition to be taken up further on. At the heart of the book is the conviction that our life has meaning: it is not our task to invent or determine that meaning, but simply to discover it – present and active – in and around us.
In 1965 Enzo Bianchi founded an ecumenical monastic community – the Bose community – of which he is still prior. Words of Spirituality is the first in a series of books by the author to be published by SPCK.
Words of Spirituality by Enzo Bianchi was published by SPCK in August 2012 and is our 46915th best seller. The ISBN for Words of Spirituality is 9780281068678.

Words of SpiritualityPam Sanders, via The Good Book Stall
In some ways I think this book is mistitled, as the author has much practical advice about living in the world, but perhaps the process of exploring the inner life fits one to make the correct judgments about life as it is lived in the world. Bianchi speaks profoundly of how to "be" in the world and how Christian identity is formed and grown in community with others, attentive to the word of God as expressed in the Scriptures and lived out in the world. There is honesty about the spiritual life right from page one: life with God is to be experienced and lived, not just thought about.
This is a book to be read from cover to cover – including the Series Forward by Rowan Williams and the Introduction – but not in one sitting, as the words deserve time and thought, as well as prayer, to make their way into the heart of each person who reads them, to emerge in a life more attuned to listening to God and lived out in being and action.
