Reviews - What do customers think about Never Alone: A Personal Way to God by the author of JOSHUA?
Girzone is an exceptional Christian Sep 26, 2005
Joseph Girzone is a retired Catholic priest. He retired when his physician informed him his health would fail if he remained serving in that profession. That was over 20 years ago. Early in his retirement he decided to adopt a life-style of total dependence on God, and learned much from this self-imposed poverty. Then, he began to communicate his ideas about the nature of religion using the format of small novels based on the question: how would Jesus deal with question (A, B, etc.) if he were to visit us today? These little books started a kind of underground "cult" of enthusiasm among those of us that found most of organized religion somewhat unsatisfying. Over the years I have often wondered how the Catholic hierarchy has reacted to this straight-speaking priest. Anyway, Never Alone is a kind of autobiography in which Girzone explains how he views his relationship with God. His simple style and unassuming personality is underlain with truly profound philosophical power. For those of us with an open mind, what Girzone has to say will strike some deep spiritual chords.
Never Alone Feb 1, 2005
This is a wonderful devotional book that is simply and concisely written. It was written by a Joseph Girzone, a retired Catholic Priest who was the author of the famous book Joshua.
Girzone writes with sincerity and passion as he encourages the reader to trust God. His overall theme is that God is always there. If you have an open heart, I believe this book can be life-changing. My favorite part was the poem "The Touch of the Master's Hand" that tells the story of an old battered violin being auctioned for only a dollar or two until the master musician got up and played it. After the master finished playing a beautiful melody on it, the crowd realized that it was worth much more. The bidding went up to one or two thousand. The touch of Master's hand made all the difference.
Never Alone: A Personal Way to God Jul 2, 2004
This is a wonderful book. It brings God, up close and personal. It is not stuffy like others I have read. It is a refreshing new perspective. It really broadend my perceptions and made them seem real. Something I can incorporate into my life. It is a must read.
Stunned and saddened..... Dec 16, 2003
It is quite obvious why the Catholic Church is struggling. Girzone attempts to demonstrate the Love of God but it is overshadowed by his resentment of the Church and his disconnect with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.I do not recommend this book to anyone with the exception of someone who has a strong walk with God and is curious about a retired Priests opinion of God. I am stunned with his disgust of the Bible and suggestion that the reader does not read the Word of God. He refers to the Bible as "Archaic stories that are outdated and difficult to understand" Girzone will be in my prayers with the Hope he one day soon finds the meaning of a true relationship with Jesus Christ.
Good book Feb 25, 2003
Tells us how with Jesus we are never alone. It goes ito depth of his closness and assurance to call on and trust in him. It was one of the best and better then most self help books.
