An introduction to the life and thought of Hildegard of Bingen - theologian, mystic, poet and musician. Her ideas about healing, the arts, science and theology and the interdependence of male and female have extraordinary relevance for today.
The wise and funny memoir of a pastor's wife, mother of five, and nurse for over twenty years. Includes stories of a migratory childhood (around the Midwest), college days, years of poverty as her husband studied for a divinity degree at Harvard, and more troubled times as her husband Jim, now a minister and a chaplain, served two tours of duty in Vietnam before finding a more settled ministry and home in Nebraska.
Jowett was born in Halifax, England in 1864. He was raised in a Christian home and trained in theology at Edinburgh and Oxford. His ministry was prosperous, he was known as one of the great preachers of the time and the churches where he served grew, with people lining up to hear his sermons. This book was first published in 1914, offering a meditation each day of the year on a short section of scripture. This version is reproduced beautifully with the original illuminated letters and illustration on each page. This version includes an index of Bible verses used for the daily meditations.
