Product description
Using refreshingly unconventional prose, rising theologian Wendy Farley has written a theological account of the human condition that delves into the deepest dimensions of the soul. Considering human life from the perspective of the wounding and healing of desire, with desire being that within us which longs for connection, home, and beauty, Farley presents a passionate, moving account of the human condition that draws strongly upon the Christian meditative and mystical spiritual traditions. In doing so, Farley shifts the traditional images of sin and redemption into images of healing and power. The result is a theological memoir that reaches into the human depths and draws forth a response of the soul--in courage, compassion, and delight.

Product Reviews

"Wendy Farley's Weaving Heaven and Earth is a work of great beauty and compassion, a gift to the soul yearing for vitality, justice, and joy. In this brilliant work, Farley succeeds in demonstrating powerfully how it is that "attention to our interiority" may "deepen our capacity for justice." Her book is a compelling and original expression of the Christian contemplative tradition, a gift for us, and quite possibly for the ages." -Sharon D. Welch, University of Missouri, Columbia, author of 'Sweet Dreams in America: Making Ethics and Spirituality Work'."
