Steps Along the Way

A Spiritual Autobiography

Diogenes Allen

Mar/2002, 120 Pages, PAPERBACK, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780898693522



In his latest book, Diogenes Allen recounts his search for the Providence of God. His journey includes reflections on the evolving role of faith in the world; an exploration of the anguished and eloquent poetry of George Herbert; a reading of the messages of love, duty, and forgiveness in the sotries of Joseph and his brothers and the Prodigal Son; and, finally, a single, but moving, tracing of his own regrets and joys as a person of faith. Whether recounting a simple excursion or unraveling a complex poem, Diogenes Allen shows us the pain of loss, the wellsprings of joy, and the power of a deep and lovingly cultivated faith.


Diogenes Allen is the former Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Princeton Theological Seminary and an Episcopal priest. He is known as one of the greatest Christian philosophers and apologists of the late twentieth century, whom many have compared to C.S. Lewis. Other books include Temptation, Steps Along the Way, Quest, and Spiritual Theology: The Theology of Yesterday for Help Today.
