When the hearing and telling of stories captures our imaginations, we are enabled at the deepest level to take our lives seriously. By envisioning other worlds, we are rendered capable of listening to God and to ourselves, and of growing in God's image.
This is how Roberta Bondi comes to tell stories in this book, stories that were formed in a life of prayer. They reflect on life's turning points and how these are made both more difficult and more open to grace by the Christian understandings of naming God as father and mother; the significance of rationality; and the incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus.
Bondi discovered that what she had regarded as her personal, private stories were not really so private or idiosyncratic after all when they were seen in the intersection of her beliefs, family experience, and cultural expectations. We are drawn into thelogical reflection on the stories of one woman only to discover there our own stories, our own memories, all stored in the memory of God.

Roberta C. Bondi is Professor of Church History at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. She is the author of Night on the Flint River, In Ordinary Time, Memories of God, A Place to Pray, and Nick the Cat (forthcoming), all published by Abingdon Press.From Library Journal:
Bondi, a professor of church history, shares her own spiritual journey in these lyrical and meditative stories. Here we travel with Bondi as she searches out new meanings for her long-held beliefs in the incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection. We accompany her as she learns to pray from the early Syriac Christian theologian Philoxenus of Mabbug, and moments of grace shine through the dark glass of pain she encounters as a woman theologian in a male theological world. Bondi's narrative theology is an intoxicating blend of head and heart. Highly recommended.
