I frequent a local Protestant book store where Catholic books get put into the dollar bin. I just picked up [u:3hvuhe2f][i:3hvuhe2f]A Still Small Voice: A Practical Guide on Reported Revelations [/i:3hvuhe2f][/u:3hvuhe2f]by Fr. Benedict Groeschel,
[i:3hvuhe2f]A description of him and the book from the back cover reads in part.[/i:3hvuhe2f] The highly respected author, psychologist, spiritual director and leader of renewal in the religious life, has written a brief but comprehensive practical guide for all those interested in private revelations, the reports of visions and other extraordinary religious phenomena that are so widespread in these times. Because of the intense interest in extraordinary religious experience that ranges from Medjugorje to the New Age, Groeschel’s book is an urgently needed resource that gives practical norms to everyone on how to evaluate these claims. Drawing on spiritual classics and Church documents not readily available, he summarizes the Church’s perennial wisdom on this topic.
From the first three chapters which I read while eating lunch today, I am quite impressed, and would suggest anyone who can find a copy get one. Thus far it is one of a handful of books I’d be willing to pay cover price for.
