Allmänna fakta



This one had me in tears a few times. I think Buechner is able to express his own specific memories so well that it inspires something similar in the reader. I remembered things I hadn't thought of in a long time as I read this, and while there was plenty of pain, being there in the memories didn't feel quite so hard with Buechner's encouragement.

"For me The Sacred Journey' was not just the interesting story of the maturation of a very talented artist, but also the awesome story of God in the life of an attentive human being." Henri J. M. Nouwen

Frederick Buechner's Godric "retells the life of Godric of Finchale, a twelfth-century English holy man whose projects late in life included that of purifying his moral ambition of pride...Sin, spiritual yearning, rebirth, fierce asceticism--these hagiographic staples aren't easy to revitalize but Frederick Buechner goes at the task with intelligent intensity and a fine readiness to invent what history doesn't supply. He contrives a style of speech for his narrator--Godric himself--that's brisk and tough-sinewed...He avoids metaphysical fiddle, embedding his narrative in domestic reality--familiar affection, responsibilities, disasters...All on his own, Mr. Buechner has managed to reinvent projects of self-purification and of faith as piquant matter for contemporary fiction [in a book] notable for literary finish...Frederick Buechner is a very good writer indeed." -- Benjamin DeMott, The New York Times Book Review… (mer)

"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 Frederick Buechner's best statements on contemporary belief challenged by doubt." from book cover
