Part I, The Roots of Contemporary Western Spirituality, covers spiritual types that have been fundamental in shaping spiritual practice. Part II, Distinctive Spiritual Traditions, offers major introductory essays on spiritual traditions formed by such notable figures as Luther, Wesley, Ignatius, and John of the Cross, as well as ecclesiastical traditions such as Anglicanism. Part III, The Feminine Dimension in Christian Spirituality, is devoted to Marian Spirituality, holy women, and feminism. Each of the fourteen chapters is followed by a practicum which enables readers to assimilate the practice prescribed into their own devotional life .
