Product description

Product Description

"A Spiritual Odyssey" is the compelling story of a six-year journey on two converging paths - a burgeoning spirituality, and a dramatic physical degeneration that took the author to the doors of death. While the book is essentially a witness to the miraculous grace of God, and how it reaches into both soul and body, the author also describes his medical journey from death's door to new life. Add in some little vignettes of vacation time spent in France and elsewhere, laced occasionally with wry humour, and the whole becomes an interesting mix. The author describes his hospital experiences in gory detail while, at the same time, struggling with questions of a theological nature. The questions, however, are not academic. They emerge from the practical, often confusing circumstances in which the author found himself as he coped with dying and tried to understand his growing spirituality.

Significant commentators had this to say about A Spiritual Odyssey:
1. "Some of the medical descriptions chill the blood but the religious explorations are heart-warming, ranging from reading theologians as different as Sean Fagan and Basil Hume, to a meeting with the sensible and down-to-earth Sister Briege McKenna, and to a pilgrimage through the holy places of France, all of which makes this a fine exposition of the riches of the Catholic tradition
[David McLaurin, The Tablet]

2...well written and should appeal to readers who draw inspiration from accounts of others' experiences. Of interest to public libraries.
[Denise J. Stankovics, Connecticut Library Association Review, USA ]

3. Intelligent and sensitive...very a graphic account of suffering and us wonderful vignettes of people he met on his journey. His description of Lourdes is truly evocative and marvellous.
[Anthony Redmond, The Irish Catholic]
