Item Description...
In the womb, surrounded by the beating of our mother's heart marking time, we begin to sense that we are "someone" as we stretch tiny arms and legs to the beat of swimming-like rhythms. But at birth, we are exiled--destined to a lifelong sojourn through time and space. For some, this pilgrimage is an impossible effort to "return." For others, it is a frightening but exhilarating search for an unknown land. Kansas or Oz, Eden or the Kingdom--our life becomes an ongoing pursuit of that place called home.

This thought-provoking book explores the concept of time not only as a defining dimension of our existence, but as the natural pulse of Christian spirituality. Imparting practical tools and spiritual insight from his own fascinating life journey, W. Paul Jones peels away our standard perceptions of time and demonstrates the potent beauty and intuitive rhythms of time within the Christian tradition.

Such Promise, Such Disappointment....  Aug 15, 2007
I have tried several times to read W. Paul Jones work in this book because I am sympathetic to his concerns that spirituality must come to terms with the dimension of time in order to bring meaning to life. I believe like him that time is the natural pulse of Christian spirituality. Also, his writing is easy to read and never boring. However, in the end I find little of what he shares as truly helpful. He is simply to speculative in his theologizing, open to all influences, Christian and otherwise. I was most disappointed in the cursory role that person Jesus plays in his spirituality. To me, this should be key to a "Christian" spirituality.

This spirituality is interesting, maybe headed in the right direction, but overall much to generic to be helpful for a Christian follower.
A fascinating and informative excursion  Feb 15, 2001
In A Season In The Desert: Making Time Holy, Paul Jones (hermit, Trappist monk, and Professor Emeritus of Theology at Saint Paul School of Theology) explores the concept of time in the Christian tradition, comparing the monastic rhythm of life with that of the secular world. Included are daily psalm reading for two weeks and daily monastic offices for devotional use. The final pages are exercises, question guides, and prayers that can be employed by readers as tools for personal spiritual direction. Highly recommended, engaging reading, A Season In The Desert is a fascinating and informative excursion into the meaning and nature of time, and its potential impact on daily life from a Christian perspective.
