Truly enlightening and inspiring Feb 27, 2005
Every book that I've read by this author, including this one, was really worth my effort. But I must say that this one is more special because it names and clearly describes key dispositions that are fundamental to true conversion. In another of his book "Invitation to Love" chapters 17 & 18, the first four Beatitudes and the last four, respectively, the author does an admirable job of relating the heart and soul of the present title to the Beatitudes. In doing this, he powerfully drives home the point of imitating Christ(or of even being more Christ-like). The way to conversion is not easy, nor did anyone say that it would be.
Practical, down-to-earth spiritual view of the Gifts May 1, 2003
The Gifts of the Spirit have always seemed a little fuzzy when it came to living them in my life. Then I read this book and found a whole new way of looking at the Gifts. Besides being more of a practical interpretation/explanation of them, I found a GREAT encouragement for my spiritual growth in that I could see them operating in MY life after reading what Keating had to say. I have read and re-read the book several times and meditated on parts of it, becoming more and more grateful for God's blessings in my life. Perhaps you, too, will find it inspiring and encouraging.
Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit, is Keating's Gift to Us. Jul 27, 2001
Thomas Keating has such an openess about himself. He shares vividly, experiences that have moulded his life. It is through his sharing and examples, that allow us to understand, in new ways, Biblical Scripture. I have put into practice his thoughts in my ministry, shortly after reading this book. I am Thankful, for this meaningful work.
