What do we really want? Internationally noted theologian Mary Grey believes we have gotten out of touch with our deepest desires. Trapped by the seductions of the marketplace, addicted to more and more, our culture has acquiesced in global capitalism's most problematic characteristics, including widespread poverty and global maldistribution of resources. Grey's hopeful book argues that there is a deeper language of desire that plumbs to what humanity really wants. Emergent in story and myth and symbol, these sacred longings can be seen in the simple yet profound elements--within and beyond Christianity--or water, light, and sacred space. Getting back in touch with our sacred longings entails a spiritual quest--a kind of ecomystical renewal--that can transform our desire, enliven our communities, simplify our lifestyles, and ultimately rekindle our global prospects.
