Urgings of the Heart Jun 2, 2004
I read this book while I was on a silent retreat seeking to connect deeply with God. My spiritual director handed me this book to meditate on the issues of my life. I laughed and cried while reading, to say it touched me is an understatement. Indeed, I felt God's loving embrace in these words and had renewed my Faith. It got me in touch with my inner peace and joy by reminding me to embrace myself wholly. I have bought many copies to share with many dear friends. I wish to share that I am not a Christian in the usual sense of the word. However, at last, I have found a book that reveals so much Wisdom and Compassion through the Christian faith and further reminded me of the experience of my spiritual encounters. Thus, I recommend it as a most life-affirming book whatever a person's spiritual beliefs might be especially in these times of frightening aggression done in the name of God (by whatever name one calls Him/Her).
Urgings of the Heart Oct 20, 2001
A book that brings to life my words to express my love of Christ and my continued search to know self. Finding self is where I meet my Creator - in that space of betwixt and between that God is present no matter what my circumstances. I am not God and furthermore, nothing without God. This book resonates in my soul - I have difficulty putting it into words. A book for serious seekers.

Dr. Au is my professor and I had first hand experience in being lectured on the book by the man himself. He is truly and amazing writer and a man in touch with his spirituality. He is book and his class had allowed me expore my faith and overall develop a spiritual relationship with God that is right for me. I recomend this book for anyone who is in need of guidance or who admires a well expressed book from a knowledgable man.
Excellent!!!!!!!! Magnificent!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Nov 29, 1998
I was on-call one day at a Geriatric Hospal wainting for call, feeling heavy-hearted. I saw a book on the shelf and the title was: Urging of the Heart and that indicated something profound. Maybe it had something to tell me about the constant urges I felt in my heart. After reading the book, I found it to be the best book that ever addressed my condition as a human being. I know the book speaks to the reality that all human beings face, but it felt as if the book was written for me. I have ordered the book and I can't wait to have my own copy. Reading the book was a blessing to me because it helps to make sense out of the way I feel about myself and other people. I have gained invaluable insights about my childhood and those insights have created much healing in my life. Remy Nelson, M.Div.
AWESOME!!!!! INSIGHTFUL!!!!!!!! May 13, 1998
The day of Easter Vigil, before confirmation, we were required to spend 4 hours of prayer time by ourselfs. We could go anywhere on the grounds. I did a little snooping and found a priest's office that had a bookshelf. Here was Urgings of the Heart sitting on the shelf. I took it down and began to read. This book is so awesome. I went out and bought it myself. I'm on the last chapter, but, it's so good and gives good insight on myself (the side I normally and typically dislike) as well as those qualities in others that are unlikeable, however, able to be delt with issues and qualities. As I'm reading this book, I'm like WOW!!!! That is me, I never realized it. People tend to hate themselfes for whom they are or whom they think they are. They try and avoid it, but, this books gives you and understanding of how to handle those areas about oneself that is undesirable and how it can be beneficial to ones personal growth.
The bottom line is, the book is really good. I've enjoyed it and highlighted a lot of it. I've learned a lot about my fiance too. She fits a lot of the descriptions of the "shadow" as it is described in the book.
I also got the book called "By Way of the Heart" by Wilkie Au.
