Discerning Signs of Hope in a Dark Wood Jul 9, 2008
For over forty years, Rosemary Haughton has remained faithful to her extraordinary calling as a Catholic theologian with rare courage, wisdom, and candor, not as a professional academician, but as a wife, a mother, a lay minister, an artist, an activist, and an author and lecturer. Throughout her life, she has sent the rest of us beautifully written reflections on her search for an intelligent and prophetic faith lived in service to others, and especially to women who are poor. This brief book which is both retrospective and visionary is concerned with very concrete things---things which inspire gratitude and hope even in these troubling times of crisis, disappointment, and dispersal in the churches and in our political and cultural lives. Her voice remains deeply reassuring.
A Waste of Money Jul 30, 2007
I found this book to be disappointing and a waste of money. I plan to get rid of it soon. The author keeps repeating the same information over and over in different ways without really saying anything. I keep waiting for her to tie her theories to her own life, but so far it hasn't happened.
