Inspirational - And Not Just for Priests!
on 26 August 2004
An excellent and very readable book - this should be meditated upon by all Christians who aim to deepen and develop their spirituality. It is practical and at the same time, fires the imagination and challenges the reader. There is a strong emphasis on priestliness rather than the priesthood - which I believe can apply to anyone. Whilst the writers are from the Anglican tradition, what is written is applicable to any Christian denomination.I particularly liked the quotations from writers such as Herbert, Donne, Hopkins & RS Thomas, showing how priestliness has been expressed at different times: that the foundations remain unchanged, despite much needed changes in the 21st church. I shall be re-reading it!
