This book is about Catholic spirituality, which the author christens it as ‘Catholic Christian Spirituality’, which introduces this spirituality to those who dream about knowing it clearly and observing it validly and fruitfully but not fully realized their dream yet. It is a compilation of the Catholic Christian Spirituality’s Scriptural foundations, its historical explications of the Church, its multi-dimensional applications, and its inner and outer dynamics. Definitely the sole difference of this book from others, as the author writes, is the fact that “it is a book written with my red and warm blood as a personal journal of my experiential spirituality as a cradle New Age Catholic.” Though this post-modern age is judged as one of the most secular ones, even as many comment it is an age of irreligiosity there are actually millions of people around the globe being hungry for spirituality and earnestly looking for help with their inner lives. Too many self-declared sages propose too many strategies as they like. Fr. Vima observes in those dealings many are too extreme or too sentimental or too conservative and liberal or too wordy and theoretical. With a heart of pastor, serving in many parishes in the States, he offers this book to the Catholic Christian friends who live, move in this turbulent period. This book is supposed to join in that group of works. In no way it seeks to be exhaustive or conclusive handbook or textbook on Catholic Christian spirituality or any sort of spiri¬tual guidance. It consists of discussions on the basic elements of Catholic Christian spirituality, its various types, its motives and especially its dynamics. The author underlines this book’s uniqueness as he writes: “In human communication it is said, ‘one visual is worth thousand words’.

Why would a Christian feel the need to study Philosophy? Are not the Scriptures sufficient? The same question was asked by Terullian, "What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem?" Furthermore, the mixing of Philosophy and Christian faith has had a long history of explosive periods which are very much part of our lives today in Western society. Great care therefore should be taken when mixing them. Scripture states it simply, our thoughts are not God's thoughts, and His ways are not ours. However, philosophical tools are at times the only way to talk to an unbelieving world. Philosophy serves the Gospel well, when it serves God and not itself. The church however, must work out these "philosophical elements" within the "distinctive first principle," which is Christ Jesus her Redeemer and Lord. This book is a short synopsis of Western Philosophy for the busy minister or Bible student needing a quick summation, and a short answer to philosophical challenges.
