Overview

Joseph Girzone is that singular phenomenon, an author who answers the unasked questions that lie hidden in so many hearts. The wisdom of his spirituality, which is at once both simple and profound, transcends the many factions of religion and speaks to millions, regardless of background, in a language all can understand. Never Alone is his most intimate book to date. In it, he unveils his personal way to God - a way of such wisdom, sympathy, and generosity that anyone can follow it and find satisfaction, happiness, and serenity. As Father Joe guides the reader, he brings us before a God who is neither silent nor condemning, but a patient God who heals gently and thoroughly, a realistic God who knows quite well how we function. We may be shocked or ashamed by what we see in ourselves, but God understands. In Never Alone, Joe Girzone unfolds the spirituality of love and forgiveness, and directs his readers toward peace.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Now, with his Joshua books well established as bestselling classics of religious fiction, Fr. Joseph Girzone turns his hand back to nonfiction. He makes a clear distinction between a genuine intimacy with God and a mimicking spirituality of pious acts--like that of the Pharisees. In this easy-to-comprehend, but by no means simplistic book, Girzone uses Jesus' relationships with both God and others to define just what intimacy with God actually looks like. Pointing out that every spiritual journey is unique and that no one can manipulate the Holy Spirit, Girzone cautions his reader against trying to force anyone's journey to conform to preconceptions. He instead encourages the reader to embrace God and trust Him to lead according to His plan. Girzone speaks of many other subjects too--of forgiveness and of suffering, of the dangers of self-centered spirituality and, of course, of transformation to Christ's spirituality. Joshua readers who have long been attracted to Girzone will be well pleased. (Mar.)
Library Journal
A retired Roman Catholic priest and novelist, Girzone shares some of his experiences (from age two on) with human friendship and with Jesus as friend. He writes of when he was penniless and depressed and how that strengthened his faith; of the need for a spirituality that is both ordinary and disciplined, and of unavoidable pain in human relationships and life. Throughout this inspiring book, written in simple and direct language, the reader is led toward a God who is healing, patient, and realistic. The book gently nudges the reader to see beyond difficulties to God. Recommended for public libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/15/93.
Virginia Dwyer
Girzone here carries his religious message beyond the fictional parables of the Joshua books into direct conversation with readers. His empathy for the loneliness and insecurity of being human guides readers toward a more satisfying religious experience than that provided by organized religions, which he continues to criticize for not sufficiently following the living message of Jesus' life. Although "Never Alone" seems written to reach beyond Joshua readers, his assumptions about God and Jesus, as well as his guidelines for doing the right thing, speak to all Christians. For them he offers an alternative, tolerant approach to religious fulfillment.
