A Must Read Book for Those Who Wish to Deepen Their Spirituality  Nov 23, 2007
Barbara Fiand provides the reader with the interpretations of the familiar Biblical passages. The provoking questions challenge the reader to enter into oneself to discover new insights which are more relevant to the world in which we live. This book is meant to be read more than once and to be the subject of discussion. Barbara puts her interpretations to us and leads us to some new meanings that we will discover deep within ourselves. Truly, In The Stillness You Will Know.
When Stillness Is Your Path  Oct 9, 2007
I am buying this book today after reading a copy from the library. I promise to avoid being profound or complicated... but the book is definitely for people who have a bit of background knowledge in not only Christianity, but in science, and perhaps universal consciousness. I obviously love the book enough to own it AFTER reading it! Perhaps that's all that needs to be said. The book does repeat sections for reflection/meditation... like another reviewer commented. They are worth revisiting!!!
Encountering the Depths of Human Longing  Sep 21, 2002
In this penetrating exploration of deep human longings, as she experienced them in the dying of her dearest friend, Fiand writes of the pain that is homesickness for our beginning in God. Deftly integrating principles of quantum physics and sensitively chosen excerpts from literature, she shows how whatever happens to one person affects the whole, because we are all essentially interconnected. Reflecting on profound moments of "homecoming" and grace, she suggests that sacraments not only make God present in a particular way, but also celebrate the presence of God already there: "When we gather in love, the love itself is divinity present." She points out the danger of literalizing symbols and religious language. We can describe God only by using metaphors, and the most important part of any metaphor or symbol is not what is "like," but what is "unlike," not what "is," but what "is not." It is only in wrestling with this tension that we are drawn deeper into mystery.
how disappointing  Sep 14, 2002
Who edited this book and decided to repeat dozens of pages of the text at the end of the chapters for reflection? How can a Catholic nun say that nothing happens within the sacraments that isn't already there? Why doesn't she attempt integration of her grief in therapy instead of through some public theological attempts at analysis? The most useful part of this book is the quoted material by others that could be used for reflection. Don't waste your money.
