Here is the Roadmap to a Deeper Relationship with Christ


SAN FRANCISCO, March 16, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ — As elusive as the truth may seem in today’s culture under the cover of darkness, Father Robert Spitzer manages to not only uncover it in his new book, ESCAPE FROM EVIL’S DARKNESS: The Light of Christ in the Church, Spiritual Conversion, and Moral Conversion, but also provides readers a detailed path of just how to follow the truth and live a life free from the bonds of sin.

Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., is the former president of Gonzaga University and the founder of the Magis Center, which educates the public about the intersection of science, reason and faith. He is the author of Healing the Culture, Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life, and Ten Universal Principles, as well as the first book in the Called Out of Darkness trilogy, Christ Versus Satan in Our Daily Lives.

In this second volume of the trilogy, Spitzer draws together some of the best advice given by Catholic spiritual masters across the ages and brings it into harmony with modern scientific research, offering practical ways to live out the Gospel in busy days. ESCAPE FROM EVIL’S DARKNESS is a roadmap to a deeper relationship with the Lord and authentic transformation through the imitation of Christ.

ESCAPE FROM EVIL’S DARKNESS tackles some of the deeper questions about Catholicism, such as evidence that Jesus established just one Church, with Peter as its head, and the Biblical origins of the sacraments of the Catholic Church.

Spitzer, understanding that no true conversion is purely spiritual, guides readers through the workings of moral transformation, with detailed sketches of all the cardinal and theological virtues, especially love. Using insights from Saint Ignatius of Loyola, as well as from modern psychology, ESCAPE FROM EVIL’S DARKNESS concludes with an in-depth study of the sacrament of confession and the staggering power of God’s loving mercy.

“This book displays Father Spitzer’s remarkable erudition across multiple fields: science, psychology, theology and the spiritual life,” said Fr. Timothy Gallagher, O.M.V., author of The Discernment of Spirits: An Ignatian Guide for Everyday Living. “It provides a near-comprehensive discussion of living our Catholic faith. All who love Christ, in whatever vocation, will find in this book encouragement and practical wisdom for spiritual growth.”
