AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A CHRISTIAN HERETIC explores the spiritual journey of Jim Rosemergy. Jim shares events and circumstances, but the book is not about what happened to him, but what happened in him as his spiritual life developed. His sense of wonder and curiosity and allegiance to silence and mystery took him into the darkness of his soul where he discovered the sacredness of his humanity and the depth of his spirituality. With eyes opened by the darkness and a willingness to be still, he explored the mystics and discovered the role love plays in a contemplative life. As Jim was writing the book, he discovered that he lives his life by giving allegiance to silence, consciousness, mystery and service.
