During his fifteen years in Latin America, Joe Nangle observed first hand the awakening of a church and a new reading of the gospel that is "good news to the poor." In Engaged Spirituality he shares the lessons from that experience, showing how the radical challenge to "love God and our neighbors as ourselves" can transform, on every level, our understanding and practice of faith. On an obvious level, this involves a recognition of the social dimension of the gospel. But this leads inevitably to a new understanding of scripture, prayer, religious vows, the church, Eucharist, and spirituality.
