Reviews - What do customers think about A Call to Joy - Living in the Presence of God?
Has depth, but lacks breadth Aug 15, 2008
The book is very well-written and organized. Clearly, the author has been blessed with insights uncommon for someone so young - or anyone for that matter. Probably because of his age at the time of writing, the principles he describes so well are not always extrapolated for the reader. I suspect his relative lack of worldly experiences just doesn't offer him the opportunity to apply his tenets to daily life. Where he did do so it made the foundation of the book so much stronger and applicable.
This is definitely a reference book as well as a read through. One needs to read it with a highlighter handy.
Matthew Kelly-Better with Age Sep 9, 2007
I enjoyed this book and have added it to my Matthew Kelly library. This is one of his earlier works and he has definately improved with age. Matthew Kelly's "The Rhythm of Life" and "The Dream Manager" are exceptional books!!! Both are a definate "must read".
great book Mar 4, 2007
This is a spiritual gem. His other books -- I think his ego intrudes. But this book is from god. IMHO.
Matthew Kelly; "A Call to Joy" Dec 10, 2004
Absolutely one of my favorite books! I've read it three times (so far). I believe this man truly has a gift. He has inspired me to continue the studying of my faith. I have read almost everyone of his books, and this one by far is my favorite. This book will truly bless you if you allow it to.
Astonishing Writing May 5, 2000
This is one of those rare rare books that you pour over every word, and keep handy at all times. I only wish I could re-experience reading it for the first time, and watching my life change as a result. A Call to Joy has in fact helped me continue to move forward on my journey ever since I first read it - two years ago.
Matthew Kelly is an astonishing young writer, only 23 years old when he wrote this book. That alone should be enough to pique your curiosity about A Call To Joy. Further than that, he shares wisdom in this book that I can hardly fathom is gained in a single lifetime, let alone from that of a young man.
Simply put, Matthew Kelly's writing is a lot like prescription lenses - he helps us see things in this world, in a practical sense, the way they are. In that, he helps his readers live their lives to the fullest. He strengthens our relationship with God, and gives us much needed persepctive on living in this day and age.
I recommend A Call to Joy to everyone. It has the power to change lives. I truly believe that every word written in this book is the truth. Every word in this book is A Call to Joy.
