Item description for Street Wisdom: Connecting with God in Everyday Life by Albert Holtz...

Overview
You are invited to stroll along the streets of downtown Newark, New Jersey, with Father Al Holtz as he uncovers the presence of God therein. A Muslim meditating on a busy sidewalk; the mysterious offerings of a local botanica; the comings and goings of harried executives; the events of September 11, 2001; all provide an opportunity to reflect on the varied ways God is at work in our lives. Father Al deftly applies the insights of St. Benedict and other monastic writers to his observations and meditations, and provides reflection questions at the end of each chapter. Beautifully and thoughtfully written, and spiritually rich, this book will delight and inspire all who long to connect with God in their everyday lives.

Publishers Description
You are invited to stroll along the streets of downtown Newark, New Jersey, with Father Al Holtz as he uncovers the presence of God therein. A Muslim meditating on a busy sidewalk; the mysterious offerings of a local botanica; the comings and goings of harried executives; the events of September 11, 2001; all provide an opportunity to reflect on the varied ways God is at work in our lives. The underlying theme in his reflections is how to balance our desire to be in control with the gospel's call to risk everything and let God be in charge. Father Al finds beauty and hope in the people and events he encounters, whether at a street fair, wandering past an excavation site, waiting for a drawbridge to come down, or visiting the performing arts center. He deftly applies the insights of St. Benedict and other monastic writers to his observations and meditations, and provides reflection questions at the end of each chapter. Beautifully and thoughtfully written, spiritually rich, this book will delight and inspire all who long to connect with God in their everyday lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about Street Wisdom: Connecting with God in Everyday Life?

A Practical Point of View  Aug 29, 2008
Walk the streets of Newark with Albert Holtz, Benedictine Monk. You can almost feel that you are there as you read the apt descriptions of the situations and circumstance. The stories are reminiscent of bible stories as they illuminate without preaching.

There is nothing holier than thou about Albert Holtz. He is as human and contemporary as you or I. That is what makes these stories so arresting.
