This vivid and varied collection of stories with a spiritual message is gathered together by Margaret Silf from a wide range of time periods and cultures around the world. Stories can be a powerful means of communication; each of these stories has at its heart a spiritual message that reflects Christian values, which means that they can be read at different levels. They are ideal for personal use and enjoyment, and will also be a valuable resource for church leaders and school teachers. The book is divided into 8 thematic sections: The Created Universe; Human Relationships; Rites of Passage; A World in Pieces; Suffering, Healing, Growth; The Journey to the True Self; The Road to Transformation; and The Dream Fulfilled.
MARGARET SILF is a writer and retreat leader. She is author of the highly acclaimed Landmarks: An Ignatian Journey (DLT) and Sacred Spaces: Stations on a Celtic Way (Lion). She has been described by The Tablet as 'one of the most talented spiritual writers'.
