Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Her most personal spiritual work to date, Joan Chittister's In Search of Belief is both a disturbing and affirming book. Disturbing to our most comfortable notions concerning our "professed" beliefs; affirming of the very best of the Christian essence, the foundation for all belief. In this book, written to and for contemporary Christian seekers and believers, she virtually dissects the Apostles' Creed-phrase by phrase-reexamining and reflecting upon what she proffers as the core message, extracting a spirituality for the new millennium. In 27 essay-reflections she serves up profound insights, the fruit of her own mature spiritual study and practice, offering readers a meaningful, enriching interpretation and new way to understand the core beliefs that we profess regularly at church and in ritual (although, as she suggests, too often superficially and with little thoughtfulness.) Enlivened with personal anecdotes, and grounded in scripture and theology, In Search of Belief will be welcomed by anyone with serious, ongoing questions, for it sheds much-needed light and clarity on the most basic tenets of our faith, making the words and their meaning come alive in one's heart and mind-indeed, making faith come alive-perhaps for the very first time!
