Reaching: The Journey to Fulfillment

Kelsey, Morton

 "This book began as a reflective meditation on the journey to wholeness. It then became a step-by-step journey through crisis to greater confidence in human dignity, in survival after death, and in the magnificence of the human person as well as a proving ground for the journey to fulfillment" (p. xiii). Thus, that what was initially an intellectual project became an existential one. As this book was being written, Kelsey and his wife comforted their son in his final illness, urged on by that very son. The question posed by the book was to describe fulfillment. What Kelsey presents is the Christian view of the spiritual path, modified by the views of C.G. Jung. An important element is the autobiographical one. What he writes about he has lived. He closes by presenting a worldview that is necessary in order "to be able to even look at the accumulating evidence" for survival of death (p. 177). He proposes that "death is birth into a new dimension of reality" (p. 193). A selected bibliography and reading guide are appended.
