Reviews - What do customers think about Interrupted By God: Glimpses From The Edge?
Testimony of Faith Apr 27, 2008
In this book Dean Tracey Lind writes beautiful "stories" which she experienced in her own life, but they are more than that: the collection of essays are a sincere testimony of faith in God's creation and all its highs and lows, light and darkness. Her creed is not simply an autobiographical compilation of events in Tracey Lind's life, but it is a caleidoscope of the true world around us. The reader can easily find herself/himself in these stories, either as the people she encounters, or having encountered similar characters in one's own life. So, the author invites us to find God in the creation around us, and in all of the creation, not merely in a few postcard images which we may treasure above the full reality of our worldly existence. God is everywhere, and Tracey Lind wants to remind us of that fact in our daily journey.
affirmation of God's love Oct 25, 2004
This book brought me to a place where I haven't been in a long time. It gave me a chance to see God, through the essays and photographs of Tracey Lind. To truly see hope in these words and through depictions of those who are normally seen through not noticed,is life changing. Tracey Lind captures a rare vision and shares her space with those in the book as well as with us. God is truly at work. This book is a must read for all. Tracey's special insight into our Creator in unsurpassed.
Tracie Lind is a refreshingly honest religious thinker Oct 2, 2004
The author's highly personal story illuminates Jesus' life and teachings. There is no us vs. them self-righteousness in this book. And we aren't encouraged to believe that faith alone will bring us to God. To the contrary we are challenged to go to the uncomfortable edges of life, including inside ourselves, to find God. Lind's book made Jesus' life and teachings more accessible for me. To love the stranger is to know and to love God. I am glad to have been introduced to this book.
A book for seekers Sep 29, 2004
This is a book for those for whom the traditional church is perhaps not especially relevant. Out of her mixed, "edgy" background, Lind challenges conventional thinking about what is a church, and what is God. Her stories, about the interruptions through which she has met the Spirit, argue for a wider, more inclusive faith.
A true gift for any reader. Sep 27, 2004
While one is tempted to dwell upon these striking black and white photographs that seem to capture the soul of the subjects (individuals and places), the essays themselves are what really push the "edge" in gaining a glimpse of the Divine in the lives of people who inhabit the margins of daily life. The book is also an extraordinary value. It's rare to find a hardcover book of this length, with photographs, slighly oversized, at $24. A true gift for any reader.
