Item description for Thinking With the Heart: A Monk (And Parent) Explores His Christian Heritage by Tolbert McCarroll...
"There is an old official path across the meadow of our spiritual heritage and it is still recommended by some. That old path is worn out and not very inviting to most people. But, the meadow itself is fresh and vibrant, always growing and changing. It would be a tragic mistake to abandon the meadow when we reject the old path. There can be many new refreshing paths into this magnificent landscape".
So begins this beautiful exploration of the Christian legacy. But even more than an exploration, it is Tolbert McCarroll's spiritual will and testament to those who are seekers of any faith -- or none.

Seeking Spiritual Comfort Dec 13, 2001
Tolbert McCarroll's exploration of his personal spiritual journey is honest and heartfelt. One need not have any particular religious affiliation to benefit from or appreciate this book. His approach is not bound by religious dogma but recognizes that "spiritual comfort" may be found through very ordinary daily life if we open ourselves to the experience. Besides his own insights and experiences, Brother Toby effectively uses history, scripture, and poetry to demonstrate others search for a spiritual path. I found the book to be uplifting in a time when many of us are seeking a spritual path to help make sense of this often chaotic world.
The spiritual depth of ordinary moments Nov 14, 2001
"If I can find God in others as well as in myself, then I can dance around the universe with another human being." So says Tolbert McCarroll in "Thinking With the Heart." Brother Toby leads us through the spiritual depth of ordinary moments as well as liturgy adapted to particular times and situations. His light touch is especially helpful to those who frequently find orthodox Christianity stiffling rather than freeing. His personal relationships to children, especially AIDS victims, add dewpth to his views.
