Reviews - What do customers think about Forming Faith in a Hurricane: A Spiritual Primer for Daily Living?
Deep but not stuffy exploration of Christian spirituality Sep 9, 1999
This book surprised me because the author took some common life experiences and held them up to a refraction beam in order to help the reader understand better the spiritual journey. Standish's book is not simplistic, but it is well written and intended for people who are on the spiritual quest. His understanding of God and God's working in our lives--as well as our remaining available to God--feels on target.
His writing is not stuffy. Standish is not overly pious. He does not expect the reader to have experienced spirituality exactly as he has. He offers personal examples that connect with my experience, but his writing does not force me to conform to his experience.
This book is truly inspirational for the layman. Apr 2, 1999
This book explores complicated subjects, i.e. having faith or belief, in a clear way so every member of every congregation can understand these everyday thoughts of faith.
Outstanding primer on finding faith in your hectic lifestyle Jan 19, 1999
Not a book for the faint of heart. Standish makes you think and reflect on God's presence in your everyday life. This is a guidebook you will find yourself referring to time and time again as you follow your own spiritual journey. Recommended reading for anyone of any denomination who seeks guidance on finding God in their home, work and all their life.
