This review is from: The Healing Station (Paperback)
A wonderfully sensitive and insightful small book of poetry from someone who sees many deeper questions behind even the most bleak of human situations. Highly recommended for its hope as well as for its humour.

An excellent and very honest book. Anyone claiming he or she is not infected by atavistic racism should first read this book.

This review is from: Mersey Vespers (Paperback)
I am obviously influenced by having spent many years sharing my own life journey with Austin Smith in Toxteth, Liverpool. This edited compilation of many of his aphorisms deserves the attention of anyone who is concerned about the many inequalities that are widening within society today. Speaking out of his years of walking alongside the people of this wonderful community in Liverpool, Austin articulate many of the questions that are relevant - particularly to those who walk in the margins.

This review is from: Etty: A Diary 1941-43 (Paperback)
I have only recently discovered the writings of Etty Hillesum and stand in wonderment at her courage and deep humanity, discovered in the bleakest of social realities. Anyone who believes that the only way to make sense of life is by the convergence of the mystical and political, this diary cannot fail to inspire. I also found very helpful the biography written by Patrick Woodhouse "A Life Transformed" which helped me situate Etty in the context of her world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quest for the Living God, 23 Nov. 2009
Elizabeth Johnson writes excellently and comprehensively to do what this book's sub-title implies: mapping frontiers of significant insights of contemporary theology. She has a very clear and simple writing style but also demonstrates her very real scholarship and research. The author acknowledges her indebtedness to the heritage of Karl Rahner. She reflects thoughtfully on the "Holy Mystery" from many different cultural and political insights ranging from the dynamics of Liberation Theology through the continuing liberation struggles relating to race and gender. I found the reflection on the theological and cultural Hispanic reality in the USA today, particularly interesting. At the end of each Chapter the author provides a reading list which is helpful and demonstrates the wide range of her own studies. Sister Elizabeth does not pretend to offer in-depth analyses of the various perspectives of each chapter, but I anticipate readers will find her overview both stimulating and encouraging in their own continuing reflections and research.
