Ways of Imperfection helps us see church history and our own lives -- the disappointments, mistakes, and muddles -- through the lens of a spirituality enjoined and lived by a great congregation of teachers: the Apostolic and Desert Fathers, Macarius, Augustine, Cassian, John and Barsanuphius, Julian of Norwich, Jean-Pierre de Caussade, and many others. Each of the eighteen concisely written essays focuses on a single personality, movement, or spiritual problem, followed by a list of recommended translations and sources. Taken as a whole, Tugwell's essays constitute an historical exploration of Christian spirituality, but they can also be read separately and in any order.
