Item description for In Ordinary Time: Healing the Wounds of the Heart by Roberta C. Bondi...

Overview
"Prayer is a hard topic for most of us modern folk, and we have little place to talk about it. My own first conversation partners were the great ancient teachers, the Abbas and Ammas of the Egyptian desert...These men and women have been urging me for nearly thirty years to pray and to seek healing for the wounds of my heart I carry from childhood, from my own temperament, from my culture, even the culture of my church. They have also urged me all along to write about what I have learned from them and from my own experience, for, as they tell us, nothing, neither the most wonderful nor the most humiliating thing we are given as Christians, is ever given for ourselves alone...The chapters that follow are in the form of letters to a friend. My intention, of course, is that you, the reader, understand yourself to be the friend to whom I am writing..." --excerpted from the author's Preface "What a wonderful example of spiritual guidance through letters! Out of her own rich experience and struggle and scholarship Roberta Bondi speaks about prayer as one who knows. Those who have a lot of questions about experience of God in everyday life will not want to miss reading In Ordinary Time." --E. Glenn Hinson, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, Richmond, Virginia

Reviews - What do customers think about In Ordinary Time: Healing the Wounds of the Heart?

help for healing of the past  Jun 25, 2006
Bondi writes as if she were writing a letter to a good friend, you, the reader. Her information on re-visiting past hurts and bringing healing to them was invaluable. I would recommend this to anyone who finds themself strangely sensitive to certain issues and wants to explore the possibility that internal workings need to be thought about and healed.
 
No dramatic scene for healing, it happened at any time...  Apr 27, 1999
Bondi shares how God heals her in somewhat a "living" basis that every day we can experience God's healing. In this letter-form book, reader can have a whole picture of how healing comes so creative and powerfully in God's spirit. Practical, enjoyable and you will pray to God for your own healing after reading it.
