Reviews - What do customers think about To Everything a Season: A Spirituality of Time?
Take Time To Read This May 19, 2000
I first picked up Bonnie Thurston?s ?To Everything a Season; A Spirituality of Time? thinking it was a book of meditations, a type of writing I find very helpful in my spiritual life. That proved not to be case. Instead, it turned out to be just as good: a seven-chapter reflection on the mystery of time, with discussions of time?s history, its language, its theology, its seasons, and its place in our lives as we attempt to ?make Sabbath? in a harried world.
I found this book insightful and helpful. Thurston is a professor and ordained in the Disciples of Christ, a denomination I haven?t encountered much since my days at the Yale Divinity School. She?s scholarly and spiritual, writes fluently, and has a genuine pastoral concern for those of us attempting ?to reclaim the rhythm of creation by God for rest and re-creation.? The ?time exercises? at the end of the first four chapters were very useful in helping me understand how I think about and use time.
