Reviews - What do customers think about An Improbable Gift of Blessing: Prayers to Nurture the Spirit?
Powerful, Versatile, Deeply Spiritual, Risky Book Sep 28, 2000
This is a wonderful book that needs to be on every pastor's shelf. It has amazing resources for worship, Bible study and personal devotion. There are resources here that take risks--you will find prayers and resources about topics that are too often taboo in our churches. The writing is beautiful and clear. The uses are many. This is my favorite book for use in my work, I have often gifted copies to colleagues and would quickly replace mine if lost.
Very Spiritual People May 8, 2000
I know both Maren and Joan and they are probably the most spirital people I know. I have often called Joan a "twentieth century mystic". This resource fills a wonderful place for those of us who use the lectionary and who believe that the Church should be more grounded in its spirituality. Thanks friends!
Lectionary Resource Mar 2, 2000
This book provides excellent material for worship planners, as well as a Bible Study lesson for small groups based upon the scripture reading. The Bible Study lessons can be used independently - like gettings two books in one.
