The Spirit Searches Everything

Rating
In this thoughtful and informative book, Frederick Borsch explores life's "big questions." In an inquisitive and pastoral voice, Borsch takes on the matters of thinking, awareness, the fundamental quality of creation, the possibility of a Spirit of life that underlies it all, good, evil, and meaning. With openness and honesty about the roles such questions have played in his own life as a husband, parent, teacher, and bishop, Borsch invites readers to engage the questions in their own lifestories. "With his formidable intellect Frederick Borsch has a remarkable knack for making things that are abstruse and difficult seem suddenly so comprehensible. Perhaps it is because he has such a profound reverence for persons." -Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu "What has God got to do with it? Answering a question like that requires knowing something about "it" as well as about God. Few ever meet that difficult double criterion with greater grace than Frederick Borsch does here." -Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography and Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God "This is a brilliant book. I don't agree with all of it, but I know one thing as a certainty: In these pages a fully mature Christian engages his faith with wisdom, candor, and the kind of sanguine courage only prayerful living gives a man. Read it. You'll be the richer for having done so." -Phyllis Tickle, compiler, The Divine Hours
