Über diesen Titel:


Unique in its focus, this book moves beyond the sensationalism of the Medjugorje apparitions to examine their actual message. The message is consistent with what Mary has always said, urging us to a path of fasting, prayer, and conversion. The author finds in this a three-part model of transformation, a vision of ourselves becoming Theotokoi, Godbearers like Mary. Throughout the book, this new model of spiritual transformation is expressed in nurturing images of conception, gestation, and birth. Using Medjugorje as a starting point, the author shares penetrating insights about today's spiritually-starved society that gorges on materialism rather than hungers for God, relies on word magic and "genie prayer" rather than listens in silence, and clings to a false self rather than empties itself to embrace Christ in all. The author connects the Medjugorje message with tradition by weaving together scripture, Christian classics, philosophy and theology. He also connects the message to examples from literature and film to show its immediate relevance. Written with elegance and clarity, this is inspirational reading for Marian devotees, spiritual seekers, clergy and religious, prayer groups, and anyone interested in Medjugorje.

Inhaltsangabe: A model of spiritual transformation based on Mary's message at Medjugorje that is expressed in the language of conception, birth and maternity. Althouth Medjugorje is the starting point here, it is not the only point. This is not a book about apparitions or miracle, but about Mary's message. We will try to appeal to lovers of Marian spirituality as well as the wackos who love the sensational aspects of Medjugorje. Will have a title change.
