All his virtues as a writer of popular theology are displayed in this excellent, insightful and moving book.
Produced with Lent in mind and consists of 40 popular reflections, which draw on Scripture, story, theology and contemporary culture. Endorsed by Brueggemann, it could be a useful resource for preachers.
Daily readings for Lent by the popular Catholic spiritual writer, Ronald Rolheiser. If you haven't sampled Rolheiser before, this is an excellent opportunity to get to know a profound writer with an accessible style.
Ronald Rolheiser invite[s] the reader to a "new understanding of redemption", while offering profound insights into the meaning of our own loss and suffering.
In many respects it is a classic example of Catholic spiritual writing, orthodox but not afraid to sometimes shock, theological but not academic.
After fifty-odd years of reading about and talking about the Cross , I thought there wouldn't be much in this book that would be new. How wrong you can be... a good investment in preparing for next Easter.
The well-known spiritual writer Ronald Rolheiser OMI, based in Texas, draws on more than 40 years of study and reflection.
Powerful and provocative book, comprising forty short and very pithy meditations, would make perfect Lenten material... Rolheiser's distilled wisdom in these pages is both comforting and coruscating.
Ronald Rolheiser, the most pastoral of spiritual writers, is full of profound insights... a completely convincing understanding of the Resurrection...This deserves to be a classic.
