About this Book:

In this series of brief spiritual exercises, Archbishop Bruno Forte-an eminent churchman, a world-renowned scholar, and a passionate Christian-guides the reader in a prayerful encounter with Jesus. Blending lectio divina and Ignatian spirituality, this catechumenal journey invites all disciples into a deep contemplation of Scripture.

Based on the Gospel of Mark, the shortest and oldest of the four gospels that succeeded in evangelizing the Church's first generation, these spiritual exercises walk readers through the life of Jesus. Applying his scholarship and faith conviction, Archbishop Forte considers how Jesus lived, faced death, and confronted the future of his mission for humanity. A meditation on Jesus' obedience, self-denial, love, courage, and trust as portrayed in Mark's narrative illuminates the path to discipleship.

Believers and inquiring non-believers alike are prompted to reflect on their own lives as disciples of Christ: Which steps should I take in order to free myself from evil and guide my life firmly in accordance? What choices must I make in order to give full meaning to my life as a follower of Jesus? What am I called to put into practice so that my life is a source of light and love for others? In this formative experience, readers come face to face with Jesus, embarking on a journey from darkness to light, from doubt to faith, from passive acceptance to active participation.

About the Author:

Bruno Forte was ordained to the priesthood in 1973 and named Archbishop of Chieti-Vasto, Italy, in 2004. A renowned theologian, Forte obtained his doctorate in theology at the Theological Faculty of Naples, Italy, and subsequently studied in Tübingen, Germany, and Paris, France.

In 2011, Pope Benedict XVI appointed him one of the founding members of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization. Forte is also a member of the Pontifical Council for Culture and the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity. For two five-year terms he was part of the International Theological Commission of the Holy See.

Widely published in Europe and Latin America, several of his books have been published in North America, including The Trinity As History: Saga of the Christian God (St Pauls/Alba House, 1989), Why Go to Confession?: Reconciliation and the Beauty of God (Pauline Books & Media, 2007), and The Portal of Beauty: Towards a Theology of Aesthetics (Eerdmans, 2008).
