Re-envisioning modern spiritual life through their examination of literature, philosophy, and religious testimony, Sean Kelly and his collaborator, Hubert Dreyfus, unearth ancient sources of meaning, and teach us how to rediscover the sacred, shining things that surround us every day. All Things Shining: Reading the Western Classics to Find Meaning in a Secular Age will change the way we understand our culture, our history, our sacred practices, and ourselves. It offers a new--and very old--way to celebrate and be grateful for our existence in the modern world.
