Inspired: The Breath of God

Joanna Laufer

$33.99

Hardback
Inspired: The Breath of God is a journey of discovery into the incredible range and drama of life's most powerful spiritual experience as seen through the eyes of personalities from literature, music, sports, medicine, law, film, theology, psychiatry, business, and education. The contributors, with names like Tobias Wolff, Andre Dubus, Doc Watson, J. Carter Brown, Thomas Moore, Steve Reich, and Paulo Coehlo, are a veritable who's who of notable people. Despite their widely varying backgrounds and professions, these luminaries have a common thread running through their lives: They have all been motivated, encouraged, consoled, and healed by the spirit of God. Readers will sense inspiration's undeniable presence as Leontyne Price describes feeling as though she is "in the hands of God" when she is singing; they will sense its power to heal as author Andre Dubus relates how, following a tragic car accident that left him in a wheelchair, he moved from despair to thankfulness; and they will come to understand it as never before when Dr. Lori Wiener tells how working with children with AIDS was uplifting and hopeful because of the courage her young patients showed. A fascinating look at an elusive phenomenon as well as an intimate glimpse into the lives of some of the eminent figures of the twentieth century, Inspired is a book that more than lives up to its name.

- Publisher Confessions of St Augustine was written twelve years after he was baptised to give thanks for what he saw as his deliverance from this life of sin. He was able to express these feelings in evocative prose. He writes about much more than his faith, with sex, marriage, love, self-improvement and ambition all included.
