Fr. Gary Rye, OSA, Ph.D., has published an interdisciplinary study in which a central theme is that experiences of community in the Augustinian sense help individuals and groups away from an unhealthy dependence on patriarchy and toward an appreciation of the underlying spirituality which is common to all the great religious traditions. There is then an ecumenical and inter-faith commonality which unites all peoples. Fr. Gary’s book is available on-line in printed and digital form.
