Paradox

I purchased a book from Amazon the other day and read it today not three hours after opening the package. It’s the first book I’ve read in awhile and I’d recommend it to anyone. It’s the “Promise of Paradox“and it’s more than timely. Too much of our packaged culture is set up as either/or when life is really about both/and. I read one of Parker Palmer’s other books, “Let Your Life Speak,” about three years ago. This is easy reading but full of insight. It’s actually the republication of a book originally published in 1980.

The book helped me to put some flesh on thoughts I’ve had lately about the paradoxes in my own life and my surrender to them.  The foreword is written by Henri Nouwen and Parker speaks often of Thomas Merton and St. Paul. I recommend it to you.
