Item description for Holy Fools and Mad Hatters: A Handbook for Hobbyhorse Holiness by Edward Hays...

This handbook for a hobbyhorse holiness will turn upside down your ideas about holiness and spirituality?and it's guaranteed to entertain and enlighten in the process! As playfully as a court jester, Edward Hays flips end-over-end such solemn subjects as solitude and prayer, fair play, the hunger for miracles, the conventional pursuit of piety and the very question of life and death. Along with parables and stories that delight the soul, Holy Fools & Mad Hatters contains fourteen playfully illustrated essays with a host of innovative and effective practical exercises for inner-attainment to assist you along the pathway of a disciple. It is the Way which Jesus called "narrow," which the wisdom of the East adds is "as narrow as a razor's edge." Walking the razor's edge, as the author shows, requires the precise balance of a circus acrobat, along with the seeming vacation from reason of a Mad Hatter and the foolishness of God's great saints. As in St. George and the Dragon, Edward Hays challenges the reader to view religion, spirituality and the quest for holiness with fresh eyes and particularly in this book with mirth, mysticism and humor. Abundant delightful artwork makes this a hard book to put down.

Reviews - What do customers think about Holy Fools and Mad Hatters: A Handbook for Hobbyhorse Holiness?

Irreverent, joyful, and wonderfully worship-filled!  Apr 9, 2001
Hays unique approach to spirituality may challenge some comfort zones, but he also challenges the reader to meet God in unconvetional places of our lives like frustrations and problems.
Fools for God  Jun 19, 2000
This book on spirituality is very light-hearted but at times will hit you where it hurts, especially when Father Hays pokes fun at some of our preconceived prejudices. He shows us how important it is to form a deep relationship with God but that we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously.
