Freedom Freed by Hope

Freed by hopeHope. Is it only for moments of despair or can hope free imagination, enlarge desires, and rehabilitate a zest for life? Jesuit priest Alberto Munaiz, S.J., a graduate of the BC School of Theology and Ministry, looks at how hope contributes to forming a mentally healthy and mature identity in his new book, Freedom Freed by Hope: A Conversation with Johann B. Metz and William F. Lynch on the ‘Identity Crisis’ in the West (Peter Lang GmbH, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften, 2021). The book, an outgrowth of Fr. Munaiz’s STL thesis, applies an interdisciplinary perspective (psychology, sociology, neuroscience, philosophy, theology) to the topic. Pope Francis wrote the book’s preface. Fr. Munáiz holds a master’s degree in engineering from Vigo University (Spain), a master’s degree in pedagogy from the University of Salamanca, a bachelor’s degree in theology from the Pontifical University Comillas (Madrid), a diploma in pastoral psychology from UNINPSI (Psychosocial Intervention Unit, Madrid), and a diploma in practicum of spiritual direction (Berkeley, California),
