More About Coming Home to Your True Self by Albert Haase; M. Robert Jr. Mulholland
 
 
 
Overview
"God is at home. It is we who have gone out for a walk." --Meister Eckhart InComing Home to Your True Self, Albert Haase invites you to return home--and shows you the way to get there. "Home," he writes, "is the sacrament of the present moment. It is only living right now, right here, that we discover our lives and this world awash in the grace of God." Using the story of the prodigal son to illustrate the far country of our false self and the way back home to our true self in Christ, Haase introduces us to the spiritual disciplines that can help us find the path home to the Father. Rich with insights from Haase's experience as a spiritual director, this is a book for the weary, the lost, the regretful and guilty--essentially, a book for us all. No matter how long you've walked, God is still home.

“Home is where the heart is” would be a good tag line for this collection of sage, prayerful advice from Franciscan author Haase. Our true home, posits the author, is with God, and yet Christians continually ramble off to unhealthy environs, much like the Prodigal Son in the New Testament. To counter this tendency, Haase prescribes a “contemplative approach to life” as a way to reclaim the grace of the present moment. He sprinkles examples through the book of people who have sought his spiritual counsel in desperate moments. These help bring his simple but wise spiritual maxims to life. Human beings have the potential to act out of anger and self-centeredness, but also hold a profound capacity for forgiveness, love and compassion. This is Haase’s main point—that we can always return home to a loving God who desires us, and that we need not stay on a path of poor choices and dead ends. Especially helpful are the practical suggestions he compiles about modes of prayer and spiritual direction. (June)
