Waiting for the Read an E book Week to start on Smashwords?
Why not read Life of a 'prayer today!
Everyone comes from different religious backgrounds. For those of you who have been with me since the start of this blog, you know that my particular religious background is that of a cradle-born Catholic, the daughter of two converts to the Catholic faith (one of whom has a Ph.D in Theology and has taught Theology in Catholic colleges since I was a baby); you know that my educational background has always steered toward the Catholic side, what with using Kolbe Academy as a high school program and having gone to the University of Saint Francis for my B.A.; you know that my life hasn't been a life devoid of guidance and growth in my spirituality.
This book taught me a lot.
Cardinal Donald Wuerl's Ways to Pray: Growing Closer to GOD is a good book for anybody in any walk of spiritual life. Don't be scared by the fact that this book taught a cradle Catholic with a very formative religious upbringing; whether you are like me and have been praying since you could talk, or whether you have never said a prayer in your life (or, at least, have said very few!), this book will offer you a Prayer 101 that meets you where you are.
How? How can a book meet people with very different experiences, in very different places in life and development, right where they are...right where they need to be met?
Book blurbs are so generic that they keep me from reading it!
"Selena must choose between the love of her life and freeing her own self. Sometimes the heart doesn't have enough roon for love and power. Her choice will change her destiny and lead her to find a strength within she never knew she had."
Did not find it on BL but it is on SW
The covers of the books stop me from reading them!
I mean this is what the cover for my short looks like...glass houses and stones and all that!
The book blurb is so confusing that it stops me from reading it!
"Barnabas, a Demon of Pride with the predatory heart of a salesman, defies the will of the Inferno.
Kalyndriel, an Avenging Angel, staggers beneath the weight of her own sin.
Walter, a damned human, witnesses the impossible, both on Earth and below.
Three unlikely allies unite against a terror beyond good and evil. Threads of desperation bind their worlds together: Hell, Heaven, and Earth. The emptiness before time gives birth to an abomination ... one who dreams of unraveling the tapestry of the God who abandoned His children.
Angels and Demons, alike, dance in the darkness as the world of man trembles beneath them. A mystery is born of a simple professor’s death: a trail that unveils the depravity in the souls of God’s firstborn.
All reap the wages of sin. All betrayals become inevitable over the course of eternity.
All is ashes."
