At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless; Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is& - T. S. Eliot, from ;Burnt Norton ; in Four Quartets With a title inspired by T. S. Eliot, this ;literary ; prayer book will delight any Christian who is inspired to discover the truths of faith in the pages of great literature. The liturgical season of Ordinary Time runs for roughly twenty-nine weeks, from Pentecost Sunday (June 12, 2011) in the spring until the first Sunday of Advent in late fall. It's the longest season of the church year, with few significant events along the way, which gives it a kind of ordinariness that the other seasons lack. There are no narrative highpoints, no showy colors or costumes, not even a signature hymn or two. This book expands the genre of spiritual writing to include classic and contemporary fiction and poetry, aimed at inviting you to experience God through your imagination. In these pages there are worlds to be explored, characters to meet, images to gaze upon, phrases to savor. You will encounter passages from novelists from Dickens and Tolstoy to Dostoevsky and Leif Enger, and poets from George Herbert and St. John of the Cross to Scott Cairns and Kathleen Norris.
