In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Ames's life, he begins a letter to his young son, a kind of last testament to his remarkable forebears. 'It is a book of such meditative calm, such spiritual intensity that is seems miraculous that her silence was only for 23 years; such measure of wisdom is the fruit of a lifetime. Robinson's prose, aligned with the sublime simplicity of the language of the bible, is nothing short of a benediction. You might not share its faith, but it is difficult not to be awed moved and ultimately humbled by the spiritual effulgence that lights up the novel from within' Neel Mukherjee, The Times 'Writing of this quality, with an authority as unforced as the perfect pitch in music, is rare and carries with it a sense almost of danger - that at any moment, it might all go wrong. In Gilead, however, nothing goes wrong' Jane Shilling, Sunday Telegraph

They travel alongside the life of Robinson's character John Ames III to introduce readers to some of the great theologians and to reflect on the life humble ministers. They explore biblical concepts of stories, prayer, legacies, and blessings. In Gifts of Gilead, readers share John Ames III quest for answers, join him in prayer, and maybe even gain a little insight into humanity's relationship with God.

Once rarely discussed in medical circles, the relationship between spirituality and health has become an important topic in health care. This change is evidenced in courses on religion and medicine taught in most medical schools, articles in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, and conferences being held all over the country. Yet, much of the discussion of the role of religion and spirituality in health care keeps the critical distance of only being about spirituality. A Balm for Gilead goes further, offering a work of spirituality. Sulmasy moves between the poetic and the speculative, addressing his subject in the tradition of great spiritual writers like Augustine and Bonaventure. He draws from philosophical and theological sources—specifically, Hebrew and Christian scripture—to illuminate how the art of healing is integrally tied to a sense of the divine and our ultimate interconnectedness. Health care professionals—and anyone else involved with the care of the sick and dying—will find this series of meditations both inspiring and instructive. Sulmasy addresses the spiritual malaise that physicians, nurses, and other health care workers experience in their professional lives, and explores how these Christian healers can be inspired to persevere in the care of the sick. Drawing on the parable of the prodigal son, for instance, Sulmasy illustrates how some physicians have put financial gain ahead of their patients, and how genuine spirituality might change their hearts. He examines both enigmatic topics such as the relationship between sinfulness, sickness, and suffering and the spirituality of more routine topics such as preventive medicine. In one especially stirring and poignant meditation, he reflects on the spirituality of dying in the light of Christian hope. A Balm for Gilead interweaves prayer and reflection, pointing the way to a twenty-first-century spirituality for health care professionals and their patients.

Searching for Gilead is a chronicle of love, laughter, and loss. Over the span of three and a half decades, the members of the Compton and Fischer families have seen the world change, both in and out of their homes. Linked initially by the love affair of two of the sons, Jonathan and Tom, the families’ relationships evolve into an intriguing web. The novel traces the connections between the two families over the years. Like many families, not everything is as it seems on the surface. Relationships among the family members brought together by the young men’s love are tested over differing perspectives on bigger issues, such as the place of religion in people’s lives and in the world, injustice in global affairs, the joy and pain of love, threats to the environment, the role of the arts, and, ultimately, that most human of experiences, the death of loved ones. Witty, comical, poignant, and shocking by turns, the story traverses the globe from Toronto to Venice, from New York to Nairobi, and from Geneva to Marrakech. In the end, the journeys of these people, as individuals and as a family, go far beyond the simply geographic.

Gerasa! Beautiful, though in ruins. What glory must once have been thine! But where are the warriors who passed in triumph through thy gates? Where are the builders of thy temples?... Where are the people who thronged thy theaters and trod thy beautiful streets?... Gone! gone forever! Surely, how frail is man! How fleeting his glory! -from "Chapter IV: At Gerasa" Little is known today about Elmer U. Hoenshel. He tells us, in this brief, pleasant 1909 travelogue of the Holy Land, that he is a schoolteacher and an American. That he journeyed to the Middle East not to indulge in Biblical archaeology but merely to observe and experience. That he put down his lingering memories of his five-month trip in late 1900 and early 1901 for the benefit of his friends and family. Hoenshel's writing-enthusiastic, passionate, expressive; alive with images of "sacred associations" and the "strangely impressive Oriental sky"-is an all but anonymous letter from the past, a glimpse into times and places long gone.

This unique Bible study guide is designed to lead readers into a deeper experience of God’s life-changing love through a cleansing interlude of repentance. Wherever they are in their spiritual journey, whatever personal circumstances they face, readers can receive God’s empowering, healing grace through the gifts of confession, forgiveness, obedience, and gratitude. As the author explains, “The solution to our desire for rest and for renewal is simple, and life-threatening. Repentance–the turning away from ourselves and moving toward God.” Through eight fascinating sessions, readers will be guided by exercises in Bible study, prayer, and self-reflection, all designed to help them redirect their attention to what God is doing in their lives. It’s a masterful blend of traditional, inductive Bible study and a refreshing focus on authentic spiritual renewal and intimacy with God. This meditative guide is ideal for use individually, or together with a prayer partner or small group. Either way, Balm in Gilead will release the fragrant distillation of repentance into believers’ lives.
