The Flowing Grace of Now
Encountering Wisdom through the Weeks of the Year
by Macrina Wiederkehr

Pub Date 11 Oct 2019

I am reviewing a copy of The Flowing Grace of Now through Ave Maria Press/Sorin Books and Netgalley:

This book is to be used folhlowing the fifty two weeks of the year.  A teacher for each week.  Every week you are supposed to open the pages of scripture and pray the verses chosen for you.  You will have a teacher chosen for you.  There are times you may be given a teacher that sounds confusing. You may find yourself wondering "How can this be my teacher?". But in a sense the entire scripture you are praying is your teacher.

The teachers used in this book are not necessarily saints, writers or theologians, but they are ordinary people, events, and experiences whose presence already permeates your life.  These include Biblical Characters, day and night, silence, the virtues and finding joy in the good fortune of others.

The Flowing Grace of Now is a year long companion that shows you the presence of the teachers that are already at work in your life, teachers that you may not have realized were there.  The teachers that are intent on strengthening and deepening your Faith.

I give The Flowing Grace of Now four out of five stars!

Happy Reading!

An interesting book that is a year-long devotional, encouraging us as Christians  to learn from every moment. The first chapter has encouraging words about how this will help your spiritual life and how you might use the book.

Following that are 52 chapters, one per week, that begin with a reading from the Bible. This is followed by a short reflection and a prayer. The chapters finish with suggestions to carry this through the week.

I really liked the unlike so many books of this type, the chapters are not dated, so readers can begin this devotional anytime. I  also liked that although it is a Catholic book, it is one that any Christian will enjoy and benefit from.
