Overview

A teacher, therapist, and writer, Vernon Ruland here weaves the strands of his remarkable life into a fascinating selfportrait. From the blue-collar parishes of his native Erie, Pennsylvania, to ministries around the world, Ruland traces a life of vocation, service, and discovery. An activist against the Vietnam War, counselor to troubled people in hospitals, prisons, and schools, and distinguished scholar of world religions, psychology, ethics, and philosophy, Ruland takes stock of all these accomplishments. He also reflects movingly on the deep values-as a human being first, then as Christian, Catholic, Jesuit, and priest-that give meaning and mission to his life.
