Living Against the Grain

By discerning our deepest desires, we discover our truest selves. Today's popular culture thrives on telling us what we should do and who we should be. We need to have the prestigious job, the perfect relationship, the jam-packed social life, and we need to show it all off on social media. But can achieving those things provide the fulfillment that we all long for? Is there something bigger and better out there waiting for us? Tim Muldoon has counseled countless young adults on this very issue. In Living Against the Grain, Muldoon offers a field-tested strategy for those facing a time of transition to help them discern their deepest desires and discover their true purpose in and for this world. Each chapter focuses on a crucial aspect of decision making, such as traveling the unpaved road, discovering your calling, finding inner freedom, and loving authentically. Throughout the chapters, Muldoon poses reflective questions that make the material both personal and practical. By engaging in the unique discernment process found in this book, you'll be wholly equipped to find the path you were meant to follow and become the person you were created to be.

About the Author

TIM MULDOON is a theologian, professor, and author of many books including The Ignatian Workout and, with Sue Muldoon, The Discerning Parent: An Ignatian Guide to Raising your Teen. He has taught Ignatian spirituality for many years at the undergraduate and graduate levels at Boston College, Washington Theological Union, and LaSalle University. He and his wife Sue live with their three children just west of Boston.


Living Against the Grain is deftly crafted to present key insights from Ignatian spirituality squarely within our contemporary cultural context. My advice: take this book on vacation or retreat and read a chapter a day. Reflection on insights will help you discover constraints of contemporary culture and help you become the person God created you to be when God knit you together in your mother's womb!--Richard Hauser, SJ Tim Muldoon provides a valuable reference and resource for those who mentor and accompany young people in their discernment and decision-making process. Building upon examples from his own life and ministry, and those of others, he integrates scripture and the writings from philosophers, theologians, and spiritual writers for deeper exploration. I really appreciated the thoughtful questions he offered for the themes throughout the book for both individual and shared reflection for meaningful discernment. This book will be a resource for my ministry as well as a companion for prayerful reflection on my own life and vocation. --Michael E. Sanderl, Ed.D
