Review

"A moving account of one man's journey from a conventional faith to a stunningly real relationship with God, this spiritual memoir will linger in your imagination long after you have finished reading it. It describes the author's path through the desert of his beloved wife's slow descent into Alzheimer's disease for more than sixteen years. A Path Revealed is an intimate meditation on how one man was shown how to love and trust God in the midst of devastating loss."
--Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger, Ph.D., Princeton Theological Seminary professor of Pastoral Theology. Recognized nationally for her unique approach to ministries of care, Dr. Hunsinger combines Christian spirituality and theology with the tools of psychology and conflict resolution. Author and/or editor of five major publications, her most recent book, Bearing the Unbearable: Trauma, Gospel and Pastoral Care, was awarded the 2015 Book of the Year by the Academy of Parish Clergy.

Product Description

Just days after turning fifty, Martha Maddux, a spirited mother and civic activist, is told she has Alzheimer's disease. She and her husban, Carlen, feel as though they've been shoved out of a plane 10,000 feet up, with nothing to grab but themselves. But A Path Revealed is not about the fallout from an insidious disease that extended nearly seventeen years. It is in Carlen's words, "The story of a path emerging during our darkest hours, a path that we neither planned, nor foresaw."

Carlen traveled with Martha to the backwoods of Kentucky, where the quiet presence of a Catholic nun revealed a hidden path. He was forced to slow down as he traced this path halfway around the world to Australia, retreated weekends to a monastery, embraced meditation, and landed all alone in Thomas Merton's cabin.

A Path Revealed echoes accents heard in Anne Lamott's Traveling Mercies, Richard Rohr's Falling Upward, and John Bunyan's 17th-century classic, The Pilgrim's Progress.
