Flannery O'Connor: Spiritual Writings. Modern Spiritual Masters). 25% of the book is the Introduction by Richard Giannone, which is actually pretty valuable for making sense of the rest of the book. Ever since I named my daughter after Flannery O'Connor, friends and family have asked me why, and what of hers they should read. The core is then organized into five sections, each a compilation of excerpts from letters, stories and novels: 1. Christian Realism (natural first, then supernatural; see the unseen in the seen).

Flannery O'Connor : Spiritual Writings. Modern Spiritual Masters.

Flannery O Connor (1925-1964) is widely regarded as one of the great American writers of the twentieth century. Only in 1979, however, with the publication of her collected letters, could the public fully see the depth of her personal faith and her wisdom as a spiritual guide. Drawing from all her work this anthology highlights as never before O Connor s distinctive voice as a spiritual writer, covering such topics as Christian Realism, the Church, the relation between faith and art, sin and grace, and the role of suffering in the life of a Christian.

Уou ll never walk alone
This is a wonderful volume, both summarizing O'Connor's life, and given very relevant quotes and sources from her writings and letters. An invaluable addition to one's adult journey in spiritual growth, (not just Catholic growth), Highly recommended for concise, precise, nuggets and jewels on virtually every page.

Feel as though I am engaged in a conversation with this brilliant, thoughtful, timeless woman.

Flannery O'Connor seems as much like the sweet old story telling sweater wearing Jesus lovin' cat lady living down the street as she does the eloquent thinker theologian philosopher who weilds a mighty pen.

Yet neither description gives justice to the woman nor her works.

Flanner O'Connor is a human who spent much time in conversation with God. Read the Bible deeply and frequently. And not only was disciplined in her reception of the Sacraments, she pondered them and the grace within. She regarded the Church with a loving, firm, steady gaze. Unflinching. Considering natures human and divine.

I might be a 40 something woman in the 2000s. But find this brief collection of Ms. O'Connor's letters, chapters, comments is so very relevant!

I am glad that I bought this slim volume and have had the chance to read with a small discussion group. It was an excellent introduction. Am eager to read more of her writing, personal letters and formal fiction alike.

I was captivated by the advertisements and articles about the book. It is a simple yet profound work. Pages seem to make us feel like we are with the writer.

I've read most of her short stories and was enchanted with the HABIT OF BEING by Sally Fitzgerald.

This book is about Flannery O'Connors, life, spiritual journal and how she coped with faith throughout her life time. Amazon carries her actual spiritual journal which I read first and then this running commentary. I gave it 4 stars because I think you should read the actual prayer journal first. See if Amazon offers the books as a bundle that way you have have plenty of fine reading and contemplation ahead for you. Check out Amazon's collection of companion books and follow this prolific writer and her spiritual journey. You will be glad to add these books to your spiritual reading collection.

Great book for all who want to know the spiritual - and I'd say prophetic! - dimension of that great writer! Profound and beautiful!
Excellent! I had no idea how spiritual Flannery O'Connor was...
