Item description for The Stature of Waiting by W. H. Vanstone...

This classic of spiritual writing transforms readers' understanding of the experiences of illness, or of being out of work, or feeling inactive and powerless.

Publishers Description

We set great store by activity and busy-ness. We want to be 'in control'. We value what we 'do' more than who we are. So when we become ill, or retire from work, or suffer an enforced period of inactivity, our self-esteem is threatened. We evade, repudiate, or resent experiences of passivity, of waiting.

This classic of spiritual writing transforms our understanding of the experiences of illness, or of being out of work, or feeling inactive and powerless. W. H. Vanstone shows us the unquestioned and impressive majesty of Jesus as he 'waits' before those who accuse him, waits before those who taunt him and, finally, waits before even those who crucify him. It is in his passivity and 'passion', when we have things done to us instead of doing things, the times when we simply wait, are as important as the times of action and taking charge.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Stature of Waiting?

Loaded with insights  Nov 11, 2009
This modern classic isn't for the average reader. But those who will take the plunge will quickly be challenged to reconsider their views of what it meant when Jesus was arrested in the garden of Gethsemanee. Was it actually a betrayal, or was it the climax of the biggest gamble in the history of the world? And what are the implications of that event nearly two thousand years ago for people today who are unable to lead what our world considers productive lives? Vanstone reasons carefully and convincingly as he shows readers that there is more to the gospel accounts of the passion than they were previously aware of and makes them realize that the high value our society places on productivity is too often tragically misapplied. Thought-provoking and rewarding.
