The Meaning and Practice of Faith, by Diarmuid O’Murchu

Book – The Meaning and Practice of Faith by Diarmuid O’Murchu (Orbis Books, 2014 – 132 pages). This little book has 6 chapters to invite our reflection: Adult Faith, Faith in God, Faith in Jesus, Faith in the Holy Spirit, Faith in the Church and Faith in the Future. In the Preface, the author writes: “I am not offering hand-me-down answers, which is precisely what many adults are seeking to outgrow.”

Each chapter offers a few pertinent questions for personal or group reflection. Unlike some of Father O’Muchu’s scholarly books, this one is an easy read expecting no reader qualifications beyond a desire to live our faith with meaning and even joy. “Passing on the faith came to be understood as indoctrination,…” (p.3). “My hope is that this generation of wise elders can engage more interactively and contribute more proactively to the fresh spiritual challenges that confront all adults in the world and church of our time” (p.13).
