Receiving the Day: Christian Practices for Opening the Gift of Timeby Dorothy C. Bass
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
A spiritual reconsideration of our frantic approach to time, Receiving the Day invites readers to embrace the temporal landmarks of our lives as opportunities for deeper relationship with God and one another.
"Those who struggle with pressures and limits of time--that is, all of us! --will find this book a rich resource to be tasted and tried. This deeply spiritual book dramatically reorients the heart of the reader . . . challenging our time-obsessed society and teaching the wisdom of religious practices." (Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore, author, And Also a Mother: Work and Family As Theological Dilemma)
"A profoundly useful book. . . . It reminds us forcibly that we are embodied creatures gifted by God with time too precious to fritter or work away. In its recommendations for healing our relationship to time it is often unsettlingly revolutionary, frequently subversive of our secular culture, and always full of Dorothy Bass's honest and generous reflections on her own life. It is a pleasure to recommend it." (Roberta Bondi, author, A Place to Pray: Reflections on the Lord's Prayer and Memories of God)
