Item description for THOUGHTS OF A BLIND BEGGAR: Reflections from a Journey to God by Gerard Thomas Straub...

Overview
We are all blind beggars reaching out with empty hands to a God who seems beyond our reach, far beyond our ability to comprehend." In these poetic meditations Gerard Straub probes the depths of his soul and the heart of humanity on a search for God. Thoughts of a Blind Beggar grew out of his own improbable journey, inspired by the spirit of St. Francis, which led from the glamour of Hollywood to the worst slums on earth. It was a journey from riches to rags, from unbelief to faith, from hollow success to a more profound happiness than he had previously imagined. But it also inspired a new calling: to awaken others to the reality of poverty, and to inspire compassion and solidarity. In this book, Straub graciously shares his reflections on a journey to God . . . a journey, he readily admits, that is far from over. Thoughts of a Blind Beggar will open eyes and hearts. It is a book to be savoured, a companion for our own journey.

Reviews - What do customers think about THOUGHTS OF A BLIND BEGGAR: Reflections from a Journey to God?

Inspiring  May 27, 2009
When I first picked up this book no matter what page I turned to it hit home for me of where I am on my journey. It gave me a lot to think about, deep, and be thankful for things I take for granted. I also like this book because it is not one that you have to read page by page.
