Ann Morisy reviews For Good: The Church and the future of welfare by Sam Wells… https://t.co/giHHhvjCgh
Author(s): Martin L Smith, Martin L. Smith
Since it was first published as the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book in 1991, A Season for the Spirit has accompanied many Christians of different traditions on a forty-day pilgrimage of self-discovery as they seek to become closer to God in prayer. These deeply personal meditations focus on themes of compassion, self-knowledge, wholeness and reconciliation of the conflicting forces within us.
Each day's reading consists of a theological reflection, a prayer to the Holy Spirit to bring us deeper into prayer and a suggestion for further meditation: a passage of Scripture, a quotation from Christian literature or a spiritual exercise.
Martin L. Smith is the author of a number of books on the spiritual life that have found a wide following throughout the Anglican Communion and beyond, including Love Set Free and Compass and Stars. Formerly a member of the Society of St John the Evangelist, he currently serves as Senior Associate Rector of St Columba's, Washington DC.
A new edition of A Season for the Spirit is good news for all who appreciate Martin Smith's ability to present deep insights about the human condition in a way that is both theological and accessible. Although intended as a Lent book - for which it is ideally suited - this journey of self-discovery reveals the author as a spiritual guide for all seasons. Highly recommended. -- Nicholas Frayling
