Item Description...
A collection of meditations upon Christianity in contemporary life

Publishers Description
These powerful reflections on biblical themes by one of today's most popular religious writers point up the truth that the darkness of doubt is often necessary to provoke a hunger for God. The Hungering Dark towers as one of Fredrick Buechner's best statements on contemporary belief challenged by doubt.Drawing on texts from the Old and New Testaments, The Hungering Dark invites us to discover the hidden face of God, the manifestation of his grace, revealed in stillness, in unexpected places, often "through a glass, darkly." It invites us to say yes to "the possibility of God," and to recover "this fantastic hope that the future belongs to God...that holiness will return to our world."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Making the glass lighter  Apr 14, 2004
We all understand life by looking "through a glass, darkly." Buechner, poetically as usual, tackles some of the why, for why it's so hard and scary for us to really see the truths about God. Buechner divides the book into "The Search," our responsibility to seek God to fill our hungering dark, and "The Sought," God's ever-present desire to bring us to him.

Buechner is poignant and insightful. Each chapter is complete and yet leaves the reader hanging on for more. It's like the reading equivalent of savoring a piece of cheesecake.

Its about life....  Aug 4, 2001
Like all of Buechner's books, I can't tell you what they are about. They are about life. Its ups and downs and sorrows and joys. Buechner writes prose like he is a poet. Sure, he's a Calvinist preacher, but he isn't as curt as C.S. Lewis can be, and he is certainly not going to cram Christianity down your throat. I bawled through Chapters 7 & 8, and read the whole book in one afternoon. I will be reading it again, for sure.
A light in the dark.  Apr 26, 2001
Within all of us there is a longing, a hungering that we cannot fill on our own. Nevertheless, we all try to fill it: whether it is through people, money, things, work, education, fame. We end up living in a world of shadows and if we realize this, we wake up and find ourselves in the dark. What causes this hunger that leads us into the dark? The answer is simple enough: God. Yet, simplicity is complex. In this book full full of joy and hope, Beuchner examines this issue helping to enlighten the struggle we all face with the hungering dark.
a book worth reading  Mar 1, 1999
This is a wonderful collection of sermons that both brightens and enlightens. Mr. Buechner has a manner of writing that brings joy and strengthens faith. In the still quiet of a room, read this book. It helps.
