Reviews - What do customers think about Treasure In Clay Jars: Personal Stories Of Faith From Indiana United Methodists Told In Their Own Words?

Real people telling their tales of the transcendent  Mar 6, 2002
This is not a book written by a professional theologian. Instead it's a collection of real-life stories told by the people who lived these experiences, themselves, and told in their own words. Each story is a glimpse into the soul of another human being and each reminds us that there is a spark of the divine in all of us. God is present to us in the most unexpected and, often, simple but powerful ways.
"Pages of compassion fill this book"  Nov 3, 1998
William Faulkner noted that the only stories worth a writer's blood and sweat and tears were stories of the human heart in conflict with itself. TREAURES IN CLAY JARS is a rich example of worthy efforts of writers. To read about everyday events and the presence of love and spiritual power within them is a treasure beyond measure. Pastor Linda Hoopes' story of communion touched me deeply. It's said that the prefix "com" once meant the exchange of burdens and her story of "communion" surely does just that. It shares burdens and brings to life the power of connections to heal our bodies and our spirit.. Stories heal too and that's what this book does: it heals. Buy it! Give it as a gift! Treasure it for yourself. As an author of both fiction and non-fiction including A BURDEN SHARD, I can share with you this view that TREASURES IN CLAY JARS is a fine and worthy read! .
This book is a real Treasure to behold!  Aug 30, 1998
I was captivated the moment I read these words from the one whose idea it was for this book. Rev. Andrea Leininger is a United Methodist Pastor serving in Brownstown, IN. Her words about how the book came about are moving and haunting, "In the wee hours of the morning I awakened, remembering the story of a mother who lost her son and how she overcame depression and loneliness, of a man convicted of fraud and... of a victim of incest who conquered despair and, through her profession, now encourages others to grow and live fulfilling lives. I recalled numerous occasions when ordinary people entrusted their extraordinary stories of hope and courage, of strength and joy..." "Treasures in Clay Jars" are the stories of such people who shared their faith journey in hopes of instilling hope and courage in readers who too have had to endure similar experiences. I found myself becoming misty-eyed from stories of sorrow as well as stories of joy and humor. I myself am a contributor to this compilation of faith stories. My story "Corn Supper" is humorous but also sobering. One writer shares her own poignant story of her personal struggle with multiple sclerosis and her haunting experience when visiting Liberia a year after the gruesome massacre of over 800 refugees. As the writer was, so too, will you be changed. This book is definitely a treasure not to be overlooked!
Looks as if "Chicken Soup" has worthy competition...  Jun 12, 1998
Faith stories by Hoosier United Methodists fills a needed void as it seeks to share personal faith stories in everyday words by ordinary persons living and working their faith everyday. It is an attractive book both inside and out. I first sought out the stories of the people I knew personally, then I went back and eagerly read them all. It's a "good read" and a fine gift idea. Looks as if "Chicken Soup" has worthy competition from grassroots Indiana United Methodists. Go for it! Doris Moreland Jones, Christian Counselor and author of "And Not One Bird Stopped Singing"
excellent compilation of life experiences...  Jun 5, 1998
Treasure in Clay Jars is an excellent compliation of life experiences that are varied and yet authentic. Each contributor is on a spiritual journey. I beleive this book captures the experiences of many people on similar spiritual journeys. I highly recommend it.
