Tending the Mustard Seed: Living the Faith in Today’s World

In his new book, Redemptorist Fr. Dennis Billy explores several questions related to living our faith in the world and in our daily lives.

What does it mean to be intimately and personally called by God to faith? Where does faith come from? How do you respond to cynicism? What does faith mean when you are speechless in the face of suffering? Can you demonstrate that your belief in God is not an irrational leap into the absurd but a rational conclusion drawn from your experience? With which communities of faith do you identify: your family, prayer group, local parish, religious order, an ecclesial movement? How would you describe the gap between vision and reality in your faith community? What steps can you take to narrow this gap? 

Parishes and faith sharing groups will come back to this book over and over. It overflows with Fr Billy’s personal experience, a wealth of references to scripture and encyclicals, challenging reflection questions and meditative prayer settings. Fr. Billy’s subtle sense of the Trinitarian nature of a mature faith will help you rediscover faith as the narrative of your life.
