Reclaiming the Landscape of Our Lives

Mark Barrett

Mar/2008, 120 Pages, Paperback, 5.5 x 8.5

ISBN-13: 9780819222909



Illuminates the spiritual journey we all take and the choices we all take and the choices we make by focusing on five of the monastic hours, from Vigils which reflect on the edges of the day and our own difficulty in choosing to begin the journey, through Compline or night prayer, the time for letting go and remembering the reality of death.

Full of humor and eloquently written, Crossing shows Christians how to bring faith and human experience together.
