The title, "Against an Infinite Horizon," asks us to view our lives against the infinite horizon of God's love and power. Not only does that put our earthly troubles into perspective, but it also unleashes the great power of God's love to change the world. Regardless of whether you tend to liberal, conservative or middle-of-the road, this book will challenge you to live your faith more fully and meaningfully. In one section, he states that the problem with modern Christianity is that the "liberals are not pious and the pious are not liberal." What if they were? he asks, stating that we are called by Jesus to be both pious and work for change, both in compliance with Divine will.
The only down side to this book and more generally Rolheiser's work is that he tends to be repetative. Sometimes this is to the good; you don't miss anything. Other times it's laborious.
theologian Karl Rahner: to put it metaphorically, in our human lives all
symphonies are unfinished (ch. i).
But Rolheiser does more in the book than illustrate that concept. Among
topics he treats (and treats not just with abstractions, but concretely) are
the Eucharist, Marriage, Mortality-Death-Resurrection, Social Justice,
Gender, the Wild Unconditional Love of God [for us humans], the Paschal
Imagination, and Prayer. The book ends with an extended Prayer for Peace, suitable for individual or group prayer.
Rolheiser writes well; I recommend his book highly to any (Christian) believer
