More About This Book

Overview

The Gift of Faith (known also as Inquiring Faith) looks at faith in an unconventional way, yet is rooted in a sound theology of the spiritual life. In this book, "the genius of a theologian of faith as well as the charisma of a spiritual director are clearly visible" (cf. The Lexicon of Fundamental Theology, prepared by the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Lublin - Kraków 2002, p.299-300). It is the fruit of many years of teaching and over thirty years of experience as a spiritual director with a great number of people. This book is a response to the desire of many seeking deep interior spirituality. With simplicity and clarity, the author engages the reader's attention and awakens their yearning to experience God and to follow a specific path of sanctification.

Father Wilfrid Stinissen O.C.D. wrote about Fr. Dajczer's The Gift of Faith: "I strongly recommend this book. If one learns a lesson from what he reads here, he will be guided inevitably on the way of sanctity."

The Gift of Faith has become a bestseller in the field of Christian spirituality throughout the world.

    Powerful guide on how to grow in faith

    This is one of the best spiritual books I have ever read. You can only read a small portion at a time b/c there is so much meaning and contemplation in every paragraph. Speaks about what you need to do in order to love Jesus with your whole heart. Wonderful info on how to handle the gift of suffering and its meaning, recognizing worldly attachments and securities you have never thought of before, poverty of spirit and having a childlike heart, deep down fear or distrust in completely opening your heart, etc. HIGHLY recommend this to any faith.

    Life-changing...really!

    This book has revolutionized my way of thinking about and perceiving the events of ordinary, everyday life. It continues to help me to recognize God's love in ALL that I experience, especially in the daily struggles of life. It has given me a vision full of hope...hope that rests in God's Merciful Love.

    The 'Gift' that keeps on giving!

    The Gift of Faith is the type of book that never grows old. It is, as if, a user manual for the daily experiences of our lives, helping us to see things through the eyes of faith - through GOD's eyes. It has helped to convince me of GOD's unconditional love and shed new light for me on the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. Since reading this book, I have a new thrill and deep sense of gratitude when I am present at a person's Baptism. The section on prayer was extremely helpful to me, as well as the sections on trials of faith. The language used to describe deep spiritual concepts is easy to read, clear and concise. I am eternally grateful to the Author of this book for putting down into words what my heart was longing to hear about - the unconditional love of an all-powerful GOD!
