Overview
Your City Guide to God

Beneath the relentless rhythms of city life beats the heart of God, and award-winning author Marcy Heidish takes you into a more intimate relationship with him in the midst of crowds, chaos, and concrete. Her experiences from a curb in Brooklyn, the bay in San Francisco, a rooftop of Chartres Cathedaral in Paris, and the busy halls of Washington, D.C., help you see the city in a new light. She turns common city distractions, annoyances, and challenges into spiritual invitations or ?gateways? to a new kind of contemplation where:

?screaming sirens become cues to silent intercession,
?skyscrapers, like spires, pull your eyes and thoughts heavenward,
?and red traffic lights work as ?pause? buttons that call for you to stop and pray.

?In the city there is grit,? Marcy writes. And grime and garbage. But her practical tools in every chapter for reflection, discussion, and application help you see?whether you?re visiting, working, or dwelling in Philadelphia or Phoenix, New York or Los Angeles, Seattle or Syracuse?that in the city there is also grace

Your City Guide to God
Beneath the relentless rhythms of city life beats the heart of God, and award-winning author Marcy Heidish takes you into a more intimate relationship with him in the midst of crowds, chaos, and concrete. Her experiences from a curb in Brooklyn, the bay in San Francisco, a rooftop of Chartres Cathedaral in Paris, and the busy halls of Washington, D.C., help you see the city in a new light. She turns common city distractions, annoyances, and challenges into spiritual invitations or "gateways" to a new kind of contemplation where:
-screaming sirens become cues to silent intercession,
-skyscrapers, like spires, pull your eyes and thoughts heavenward,
-and red traffic lights work as "pause" buttons that call for you to stop and pray.
"In the city there is grit," Marcy writes. And grime and garbage. But her practical tools in every chapter for reflection, discussion, and application help you see-whether you're visiting, working, or dwelling in Philadelphia or Phoenix, New York or Los Angeles, Seattle or Syracuse-that in the city there is also grace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Soul and the City: Finding God in the Noise and Frenzy of Life?

Profane meets Sacred  Aug 26, 2008
This is a MUST-READ for anyone in search of a concrete spirituality in today's hectic world. I commend Ms.Heidish's in-depth bibliographical research on this engaging topic. Rather than seeing interruptions, delays and inconveniences as reasons to become enraged, the author challenges us to see them as "Gateways" to go within ourselves and deepen our awareness of the presence of God. Ms. Heidish's personal approach is an invitation to each of us to do the same. She has managed to meld the sacred and the profane. It can be done anywhere and at any time. It is a welcomed idea for the overworked who say that they have no time to reflect or pray in their daily lives. THANK YOU, Ms. Heidish!
I have pruchased several copies of this book as gifts for family and friends! Sincerely, Marianne Sheehan
 
Peace in a Chaotic World  Aug 18, 2008
Finally, I have found a book that helps me connect to God in this chaotic and fast world! Soul and the City gave me much needed ideas and clues about relieving the sense of being alone in a large city. I have read many spiritual books, but this one was exactly what I needed.

I look forward to more books by Marcy Heidish. She found a gentle way to put me back on track! Thank you, Ms. Heidish!
 
God is everywhere...  Jun 21, 2008
I was not sure what to expect when I began reading, Soul of the City. I was not sure I could connect with the theme. However, I soon discovered that we all live in a big city, for we all have times of chaos in our lives.

I could relate to Marcy Heidish's message. Many times when I have heard a siren, I have stopped to pray. There are many times when I have felt the hustle and bustle of life pulling me down, and I have had to seek a quiet spot in the midst of all that is around me. Heidish purports true prayer, sincere prayer that comes out of our soul. She also expresses the need for sincere worship. Our Lord is everywhere, and we can worship anywhere. Christians will enjoy Soul of the City.
