Item description for Darkness & Dreams: A Spiritual Journey through Separation and Divorce by Stephen A. Laucik & Jane E. Vennard...
Divorcing, like dying, is for many a profoundly spiritual experience. The traumas of divorce raise inevitable questions of faith and ultimate meaning. Yet shockingly few of the published books on divorce even acknowledge the spiritual dimensions. Darkness & Dreams helps fill this gap in the literature of divorce and Christian spirituality. It does so, not by answering all the hard questions, but by sharing one contemplative Christian's story with startling candor and vulnerability.
Two years before he fell in love with another woman and decided to leave his wife, Stephen Laucik began keeping a private spiritual journal, "listening" to his daily life as a form of prayer. Darkness & Dreams, a highly condensed edition of that journal, is the result. It chronicles Laucik's agonizing process of ending a long, dysfunctional relationship and coming to terms with his decision before God. It is an intensely personal narrative of a universal theme: the death and resurrection of love.
For readers facing similar circumstances, the story pays off both psychologically and spiritually. On one level, it validates every emotion men and women normally experience at the ending of one love story and the beginning of another. More important, however, it simply and eloquently testifies to the dogged persistence of that Divine Lover who never leaves, even in our darkest hours.
Ultimately, Darkness & Dreams holds up a mirror in which readers can see themselves, their intimate relationships, and their own spiritual journeys with greater clarity and compassion.
