Originally a NYT Magazine piece, the author is a divinity professor at Duke University who presents the devastating story of her struggle with liver cancer at 35 with warmth, wisdom, some complaints and humor. Very readable and thoughtful without too intrusive a religious commentary although her beliefs are prominent and she wrote a thesis on the "prosperity churches" of the south. At the time I started this book, her diagnosis had no personal connection. Now it does and I am grateful for it. The appendices (Do's and Don't's in talking with the patient) are worth its purchase. I was heartened to see she's also posted on her website, www.katebowler.com this month. That was my first thought as I closed the book. How's she doing? How glad I was to find her still with us, still writing.… (altro)

Summary:"Tender and powerful spiritual reflections and blessings that invite readers to honestly and joyfully walk through their everyday, wonderful, messy humanity, from the New York Times bestselling author of Good Enough. Kate Bowler, author of the instant New York Times bestseller Good Enough and national bestseller The Lives We Actually Have, wants to encourage people to develop their capacity to feel the breadth of their experiences. The better we are at identifying our spiritual highs and lows, the more resilient we become. In Bowler's previous books, she offered a singular way to view the everyday in all of its heartache and glory. Now in Have a Beautiful, Terrible Day!, Bowler is inviting readers for the first time to fully embrace the terrible along with the beautiful by offering readers honest, heartfelt daily devotionals followed by blessings and action steps that lead readers to feel seen, heard and understood no matter what their day may bring. In addition, Bowler has written Advent and Lenten sections to round out the book that offer readers a rich, meaningful way to enter into these seasons of expectation and contemplation. Along the way, Bowler shares funny and poignant moments in her own life while enduring a dark season of pain. As she says, "What I want more than anything is to bless you and me right now, and feel the truth of our realities without letting reality itself overwhelm us...So here's to us having beautiful, terrible days.""-- Provided by publisher… (altro)
