Future of Wisdom: Toward a Rebirth of Sapiential Christianity

product image

"Barnhart seeks and desires no less than a wholehearted rediscovery and reinvigoration of the mystical wisdom tradition that was once a powerful component of Christian spirituality."--Library Journal

Much like Thomas Merton's writings, this book recalls that a sapiential (wisdom) consciousness is central to the New Testament and remained the primary mode of theological understanding for more than twelve centuries. It proposes a new birth of this theology and understanding but with a new scope and new power for our time.

Bruno Barnhart was the spiritual director of New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, California. He authored several books including Second Simplicity: The Inner Shape of Christianity. He died in 2015.
