Now is the Time: Spiritual Reflections
by Sister Stan
Now is the Time became an instant bestseller when it was first published, and it has continued to sell to an increasing and eager audience who admire and understand Stan's way. In this expanded edition, which includes five new entries, Stan's message remains the same: we have the time, if we make the choice to take time ...
Now is the Time is a book for everyone; young or old, male or female, for the converted or those who are irreligious or plain disaffected. Even people for whom a spiritual view of the world is a closed book should try opening this one.
Now is the Time looks beyond the boundaries of any one faith or church and draws on the great spiritual and philosophical traditions of east and west. As Sister Stan focuses on a line of poetry from one of the world's great authors, an idea from a psychotherapist or philosopher, or a proverb from oriental wisdom, she weaves her own thoughts around them in a way that presents them afresh, and allows us to see them from a new perspective.
Widely loved as a committed social activist and tireless worker on behalf of people in need, Sister Stan reveals an entirely different side of her nature - the reflective, contemplative and the spiritual - and offers us an inspiring and thought-provoking work of vision.
Even the most convinced cynics will find something in Sister Stan's basic premise: 'Take time to live - it's what life is for.'
