Item Description...
Overview
Called To Holiness: Spirituality for Catholic Women "Discovering who we are as women in God's sight is an amazing journey toward truth and love. We make sense of God as we reflect, walk, drive, ponder and question the meaning of our lives as Christians." The moment is ripe for ordinary Catholic women to "do Christian theology." Times such as these challenge us to be holy, to be alive in the Spirit, to summon the energy and make the commitment to help one another grow spiritually. Now is the time for Catholic women to make sense of God. In this introductory volume to the groundbreaking eight-volume series, Called to Holiness: Spirituality for Catholic Women, Catholic theologian Elizabeth Dreyer encourages us to acknowledge our dignity, harvest our gifts and empower all women in church and society. Dreyer helps us to shape what we think about God, justice, love, prayer, family life, the destiny of humanity and the entire universe.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Could be better  Jun 25, 2009
I had listened to the author speak several years ago. My women's spirituality group selected this series for discussion. I guess we are all old enough that we have formed our sense of God, and found the book rather elementary, but still helpful for discussion. The prayers that accompanied the end of each chapter were great and often opened our discussions.
 
Ideal for Faith Sharing  Nov 5, 2008
I've never looked upon feminism and Christianity as incompatible, but after reading Elizabeth Dreyer's latest book I see them as not only compatible but also complementary. Take the chapter on asceticism, for example. In ancient Greece, "asceticism" referred to physical training. But as Christianity took hold in the first century, the definition was broadened to include mental, spiritual, and ethical development. Dreyer further expands the definition to embrace relational and sociopolitical realms in which asceticism can result in increased sensitivity, compassion, and solidarity with the poor. She presents today's ascetic not as a "thin, gray-cloaked monk with solemn visage and sunken cheeks," but as a woman responding creatively and lovingly to the demands of family, job, and community. She explains that "women and men who struggle to live in the truth, face illness and aging with courage and grace, and die to self in parenting are models for all of us. As women of the church, we are called to the love embodied in daily asceticism."

Other topics in Making Sense of God include grassroots theology, a prayerful, informed, reflection on our lives in light of the loving presence of God; sacramental consciousness; and the Trinity. With reflection questions after each chapter and several suggestions for rituals, this book would be ideal for a retreat or faith-sharing group. It is the first volume of the Called to Holiness series on spirituality for Catholic women. Seven more titles are planned.
