Item description for Compass and Stars by Martin L. Smith...

Overview
* First book by this popular author since leaving the religious life. * Based on his very popular column in Washington Windows * Ideal for parish study and prayer groups: clear, accessible, and short. * Will sell beyond the Episcopal Church market to Methodists, Lutherans, and liberal Catholics. "Finding our way, getting our bearings, takes its imagery from the art navigation with map and compass and stars. It speaks to our feelings of confusion, loss, and failure. When we admit to God we have lost our way, we get the chance to discover that all ways belong to God - even the way of disorientation." This collection of short, informal pieces that are both theologically substantial and genuinely popular is aimed at helping us "get our bearings" in the life of the spirit today. These essays reveal the staleness and oppressive nature of many of our spiritual practices at a time when, more than ever, we need to stand back and let the fresh winds of the Spirit blow through our lives and surprise us. Whether about the spirituality of shopping or social justice, discernment or channel-surfing, these pieces will delight you and make you think. Ideal for retreats and as a source for sermon ideas, the book can be read in one day, or spread over a month or more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Compass and Stars?

Great book for discussion group  Jun 26, 2007
We are using this book for a discussion group. Very easy to read, but most of the chapters are quite relevant. Chapters are short, which is a plus when some people have not previously read them.
