Item description for Loosening the Roots of Compassion: Meditations for Holy Week and Eastertide by Ellen Bradshaw Aitken...

Overview
Here is Holy Week and Eastertide reading to which you will return time and again. Here is real nourishment for body, mind, and soul, and for the remaking of the world. Ellen Bradshaw Aitken's meditations will help you to send forth deep roots from your life into scripture and into the contemplation of Jesus' risen life. . . . Take what you need to help you pray your life and to discern new pathways of the resurrection in yourself and in the world around you-to loosen the roots of compassion within your heart. These meditations sing that the resurrection is somehow at work everywhere, building in us a new creation. Beautifully written, deeply considered, they invite us to tilt and turn the scriptural text as though it were a hologram-and then to do the same with our lives in light of those texts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Loosening the Roots of Compassion: Meditations for Holy Week and Eastertide?

Recommended!  Apr 7, 2006
Loosening the Roots of Compassion is exactly what its subtitle indicates: a book of meditations for Holy Week and Eastertide. Aitken, a university professor of Christian history and literature, is also an ordained Episcopal priest. She indicates in the book's preface that we as modern-day believers can find relationship between Biblical text and liturgy, and ancient communities of believers. These contemplations become the roots of our lives, into both scripture and church tradition.

This small book is easy to use. Aitken gives mediations for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Day. She further extends the celebration into the week following the Resurrection of Jesus, including some of the Risen Christ's appearances (to the disciples; on the road to Emmaus; and the miracle of the "riot of fish"). Each meditation includes the appropriate Biblical passage as well as a modern practical application and a prayer.

I recommend this book to those in the ministry who prepare for the Lenten and Easter seasons, as well as those who would wish to have a guide for their own meditative contemplations during Holy and Easter weeks.

Armchair Interviews agrees.
