POVERTY OF SPIRIT
Poverty of Spirit is a classic work of Christian spirituality. This inclusive-language English edition makes the book available to a new generation of readers - people who are struggling to become more human by joining themselves to the humanity of Christ. The famous German theologian Johannes Metz walks with us in that process. We become human, he says, by emptying ourselves, surrendering everything, and thereby discovering our treasure in God.

- God Becomes Human;
- We Become Human;
- The Innate Poverty of Humanity;
- The Poverty of Being Human Freely Accepted: Poverty of Spirit;
