Text (application/pdf)


With the advent of the postmodern era, a heralding of a renewed and energetic interest in spirituality is being announced globally throughout many facets of society. This revival in spirituality has adopted diverse forms of expression, which generate an interest and intellectual quest to discover the nature and reasons for this phenomenon. This study will examine the history and development of Christian spirituality, as well as the concepts and values which emerge as enduring and intrinsic to the nature of spirituality. The goal of this thesis is to study the influence of pluralism and secularism on spirituality, and the resulting modern and postmodern concepts of spirituality, which have emerged because of this cultural trend in postmodern society. In discovering the essential elements of authentic spirituality, this thesis will justify and propose reasons and methods for fostering spirituality in a pluralistic secular society.
