The book chosen by GIFT participants for the fall of 2020 was:
Radical Optimism: Practical Spirituality in an Uncertain World by Beatrice Bruteau
In a world increasingly marked by violence and pessimism, Dr. Beatrice Buteau demonstrates that there is a better way. Radical Optimism is our deepest response to the immense challenges of our contemporary world and the expression of the most essential truth we can know: each of us is one with God, here and now. Radical Optimism challenges the reader to confront difficulty with authentic spirituality. Beatrice Bruteau is both an original philosopher and a brilliant synthesizer whose vision of life is an inspiration to some of the most influential thinkers of our time. —Back cover
In Radical Optimism, Beatrice Bruteau sets forth a deep and shining vision of spirituality, one that guides the reader into the contemplative life and the very root of our being. Dr. Bruteau is a philosopher of great measure whose work should be require reading for all who seek the deepest truth about themselves.
--Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Life of Bees and, more recently, The Book of Longings
