God Is Not Reasonable: And Other Tales of Mother Macrinaby Irma Zaleski
"You can't 'get' to heaven," says Mother Macrina, "you must become heaven," and the way that happens is through prayer, repentance, and love. The wise and lively Mother Macrina—a fictional character born from the imagination of author Irma Zaleski—is a modern-day "desert mother" who lives quietly, but not quite silently, in a small apartment in a town perhaps like yours. Her surprising and often humorous answers to the questions put to her by her visitors make up this charming collection of parables on God, love, and everyday life. The disarmingly simple tales address the profoundest questions of faith with penetrating wisdom and a spirit of joy.
