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 "From the book's opening sentence...and sensible reader will be caught in Godric's grip...Godric glimmers brightly." -- Peter S. Prescott, Newsweek "Godric is a memorable book...a marvelous gem of a book...destined to become a classic of its kind." -- Michael Heskett, Houston Chronicle "In the extraordinary figure of Godric, both stubborn outsider and true child of God, both worldly and unworldly, Frederick Buechner has found an ideal means of exploring the nature of spirituality. Godric is a living battleground where God fights it out with the world, the Flesh, and the Devil." -- London Times Literary Supplement "Wityh a poet's sensibly and a high reverent fancy, Frederick Buechner paints a memorable portrait." -- Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal… (mer)

A brilliant re-creation of the sacred and profane life journey of the unpredictable, all-too-human twelfth-century saint who went from being a sea rover to poet, hermit, and mystic.
  StJamesLenoir | Apr 25, 2020 |
The life of a medieval hermit and saint, Godric, in his own words and memories, and also as written down by Reginald, a monk. This gives you a glimpse into the medieval mind, especially into that of one who is sorrowful for his life and spends fifty years in reparation, praying to God. Before visions [or dreams] of a monk, Cuthbert, and a girl, Gillian, Godric lives the life of a peddler, merchant, pirate, steward to a lord, sexton to a priest, then gives his life to God. This beautiful story flowed like the River Wear. The author has turned it into a sort of rhythmical prose-poem, if I can use that expression. A must-read. ( )

Godric is the story of a man repeatedly found by God throughout a life filled with adventure and sorrow. Buechner has done an excellent job of telling Godric's story in its historical context as well as in the context of life: a man striving for God in a world full of evils that cannot be mended and sins he never intended to commit.
