About this Item

408 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.Faith is the greatest resource one can have when facing adversity. Unfortunately, faith is often confused with belief in specific doctrines whose effect is to separate people. Parsons Porch Books is proud to introduce Charles Carlos Gourgey, who has written a beautiful and timely book that asks the questions, What is faith and How do we find it and in Judeochristianity he reminds us that understanding Jesus within the context of Hebrew prophecy can lead us to a more profound meaning of faith, a faith based on love rather than fear, which can become for us a very present help in trouble. Topics include: love and awareness, the transcendence of grief, the problem of suffering, self-acceptance, and the hope of resurrection. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781936912186

About this title

Reseņa del editor:

This book is about faith, what it is and how we find it. "Lafe es numero uno": "Faith is Number One." This is what one of my hospice patients told me when I asked her how she is able to maintain her confidence in spite of having to face illness and death. For close to two decades I have had the privilege of working at Cabrini Hospice in New York City and at similar hospice and nursing home settings using my skills as a musician and music therapist. What has impressed me most of all is how faith, for those blessed to have it, helps people meet just about any tragedy with confidence and a strong spirit. Of course even the spiritually strongest have their fearful moments, but are not defeated by them. Faith is the dominant force in their lives. I believe we were all meant to have faith, though for many of us acquiring it is difficult. For some of us it may take a lifetime. But there is much we can learn along the way. I have certainly learned a great deal from my patients who have had this faith, and I continue to learn from their example. This book is not a scholarly exposition of the history or writings of either Judaism or Christianity. The relationship between the two as it has evolved over the centuries is complex and could be the subject of an extensive separate study. Rather this book asks the question: "If we consider looking at Jewish and Christian tradition as a continuous whole linked through the prophetic proclamation of the Covenant, rather than as two sets of competing beliefs and practices, what kind of approach to faith would evolve?" In this book I explore what faith is, what it means to find it, and the obstacles we struggle with along the way. I have discovered that the most effective and genuine faith is not what we often tend to think. Often we confuse faith with belief. This is not the Bible's understanding of faith, and it should not be ours. Faith is much more than belief. It is a complete inner transformation opening the heart to goodness. I believe this is what the Bible means by faith, and also that this understanding of faith is the most spiritually healing for us.
