Item description for Shape of Living, The: Spiritual Directions for Everyday Life by David F. Ford, Susan Howatch & George Carey...

Learn how to overcome the distractions in your life and develop an everyday spirituality to guide your years.

Publishers Description
In our culture of distraction it can be hard to focus on spiritual matters. Work, finances, and uncertain futures are just a few things that overwhelm us daily. Discover how to overcome and develop an everyday spirituality that will guide your actions and bring meaning to your hectic life.
"Ford provides a way beyond distraction to joy and buoyancy."--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Amidst the glut of books on the devotional life that seek to be relevant and are only contemporary, this book is already a classic on the 'spirituality of everyday life.' I could hardly put it down."--Ray Anderson, Fuller Theological Seminary
"A wise book that concentrates on the principle aspects of our lives that we so often get wrong because we lack wisdom."--Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School
"Offers far greater wealth than even several readings can probe."--Books & Culture
"Profound and reflective . . . yet always concrete, and never dishonest or evasive. A jewel of the spiritual life in its everyday manifestations."--Nicholas Wolterstorff, Yale Divinity School
"These reflections ought to be read by laity and clergy alike, for they offer the spiritual renewal we desperately need."--L. Gregory Jones, Duke University Divinity School
"The Shape of Living is like a friend's invitation to a dinner at which you encounter some unexpected guests and hope for some life-shaping consequence. By all means, accept."--The Christian Century
David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity at Cambridge University, is the author and editor of many books, including Reading Texts, Seeking Wisdom

Reviews - What do customers think about Shape of Living, The: Spiritual Directions for Everyday Life?

amazing  Jan 25, 2010
This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. It is not a hard read but the words are profound. I am so incredibly blessed when others speak positive words over me, this book not only makes me want to do that for others, it explains why "blessing" is so important. I bought extras to give away. Several have not gotten to it but the ones who have have called me to tell me how amazing they thought the book was. I think it is a must read for parents, school teachers, anyone who is over others in the work place, or anyone who wants to make a difference in others' lives!
