Living a Gentle, Passionate Life based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I've picked this book up and set it down several times before getting through it. The ideas Mr. Wicks gives in each chapter, along with questions for consideration require time and reflection. He does offer a simple way to determine one's calling and then to follow it. But simple does not mean easy. Like therapy, the book requires self-reflection and examination of unpleasant areas of one's life. Like good therapy, the book offers gentle, life-affirming encouragement to conduct these self-examinations. I found myself in a better space after reading this book and am still searching for my 'name before God.'
I found this book superficial given the rich spiritual heritage of the Catholic Church...not much to reflect on. ...a therapist's simplistic reflections on deep spiritual issues.
