Item description for The Quantity of a Hazelnut by Fae Malania & Lauren F. Winner...

The touchstones of Fae Malania's spirituality are ordinary, humble things. Christian life happens in the ordinary - when we do the dishes, when we garden, when we tuck our children into bed, even when we argue with our spouses.

Publishers Description
Fae Malania's lovely book is a small offering, like a hazelnut. Like the hazelnut, this book is a reminder of God's love. And like a hazelnut, it can unlock a world.--Lauren F. Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Mudbath Sabbath The resurrection of a good book is always cause for celebration. The Quantity of a Hazelnut is a very good book indeed, neither extremely loud nor incredibly close but quietly unforgettable.--John Wilson, Editor, Books & Culture With beautiful language and a winning confessional style, Malania offers a spiritual vision that is steeped in traditional Catholicism while open to truth in diverse places.--Jana Reiss, author of What Would Buffy Do? The Vampire Slayer as Spiritual Guide As in Julian of Norwich's hazelnut story, the touchstones of Fae Melania's spirituality are ordinary, humble things. Christian life happens in the ordinary--when we do the dishes, when we garden, when we tuck our children into bed, even when we argue with our spouses. Fae Malania recognized this truth half a century ago. In these pages, you'll read about her kitchen epiphanies, and the spiritual insights that come to her while reading the newspaper. "To begin with, never mind pleasure," writes Fae Malania in her account of one woman's discovery of faith, "Search out joy." In this newly revived classic, the image of a hazelnut calls up Julian of Norwich and her vision of a God who holds the smallest thing in being, a hazelnut or a sparrow, by the sheer force of love. Whether reflecting on a pigeon crossing East 36th Street to the ironies of trying to live simply, from Scarlatti on the car radio to the secret life of insects, Malania's voice is unique and her vision clear."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Quantity of a Hazelnut?

Still Good After All These Years  Sep 11, 2007
I own and have read the Hallmark Book edition of this book (A Search for Joy) many, many times. So many quotes that have stuck with me over the years and formed my thinking. I hesitate to put them down by memory but will try with a couple. After telling the story of a neurotic saint, Ms. Malania concludes: God gives to each person . . . the capacity to become a saint. That is to fill his vessel full of holiness here in this life no matter what sort of odd size or shape that vessel may be. I love this line too: If God had created the universe and then gone off and left it, the universe would have been hopelessly snarled five minutes after creation--as every housewife knows!
She has a unique way of combining the routine with the sublime in ways that cause you to smile--and think.
