Receiving the Day

Dorothy C Bass

$41.99

Hardback
Also Available In
In this examination of the spirituality of time, Dorothy Bass invites readers into a way of living in time that is alert to both contemporary pressures and rooted in ancient wisdom. She asks hard questions about how our injurious attitude toward time has distorted our relationships with our innermost selves, with other people, with the natural world, and with God. As an alternative to the rhetoric of management and mastery, this volume offers a language of attention, poetry, and celebration. Bass encourages us to re-evaluate our understanding of the temporal and thereby to participate fully in the Christian practice of knowing time as God's gift. Embraced in this way, time need not be wrestled with each day. Instead, time becomes the habitation of blessing.
