Breath of fresh air! Jun 2, 2008
Jack Fortin's book is a breath of fresh air for a weary soul. Theologically grounded, yet as open as a window in spring, this book is a joy to read. For all of those who are as Jesus put it, "weary and heavy-laden," Fortin's words bring us rest in the redeeming and renewing work of Christ. No one reading The Centered Life can possibly go away empty.
Well centered Feb 3, 2007
So many people talk about balance in our lives.... This book reminds us that even in the midst of what may seem unbalanced or hectic, what matters is our focus and our center. Fortin is well grounded and passionate about his work!
Finding peace in a troubling world May 22, 2006
Our world competes for our time and attention in ever increasing ways. Finding a place for calm and reflection, let alone a way to set priorities is a growing challenge. Fortin presents in a clear and applicable pattern, a way to accomplish this goal. Based on his lifetime of working with people to focus on mission and productive ministry, Fortin clearly has much to say that is helpful.
For a student of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the Centered Life echos the theme of "Christ the Center". In Bonhoeffer's "Ethics" this reality is to be found both in the Church and the secular world. Fortin harmonizes with Bonhoeffer's mandates to balance Church, the family, labor, and government. The centered life permits us to live before God, in a world God made, acting out our responsibilities with focus and clear purpose.
