5.0 out of 5 stars 40-DAY JOURNEY WITH MADELEINE L'ENGLE 25 Mar 2009
By Diane M. Moore - Published on
Isabel's 40-DAY JOURNEY provides the opportunity for Christians everywhere to be mentored by Madeleine L'Engle, she explains in the directions about how to use the book - and encourages readers "to begin living what you learn." She has selected 40 inspiring excerpts from Madeleine L'Engle's books and added to them questions to ponder regarding the excerpts, psalm-fragments, nudges for journal reflections, followed by prayers of hope and healing for readers.

Isabel promises readers that if they follow the instructions in 40-DAY JOURNEY, they'll deepen the focus and intensity of experiences that result in spiritual transformation. Most of Isabel's books center on this deepening of the spiritual life and reflect her own deep faith and daily spiritual practice. In preliminary pages of the book, Isabel gives direction for keeping a spiritual journal which she recognizes as a form of meditation; i.e., "a profound way of getting to know yourself - and God - more deeply...writing is generative: it enables you to have thoughts you wouldn't otherwise have had...."

Also included in the preliminary pages of 40-DAY JOURNEY is a brief biography of Madeleine L'Engle, who died in 2007. Isabel talks of Madeleine's engagement with the questions of life and death, and her exposition of themes about good and evil, science and faith, and man and nature. Isabel's 40-DAY JOURNEY WITH MADELEINE L'ENGLE is a gift to those of us who are interested in spiritual growth and provides a series of "inspirations" to help us understand how the Holy Spirit is working within all of us. Brava, Isabel, and thank you for the Christmas gift you have packaged of the writings from the work of your friend and mentor, Madeleine L'Engle.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very hard read. I found it difficult to get through it. The text asks questions that are more for the type of person who likes to do a lot of imagining and reflection.

A 40 day study with Madeleine L'Engle, her reflections on God. I think that I have found a new author to enjoy. I also ordered her book, "Meet the Austins".
