52 Original Wisdom Stories by Penelope Wilcock

  • ISBN-10: 0857216023
  • ISBN-13: 978-0857216021

Synopsis ~ 

Positive and life-affirming stories for church leaders

These 52 loosely related fictional stories about the large themes of life, nature, and faith follow the liturgical year and are an ideal resource for public worship.

Sid and Rosie are an older married couple with several children and grandchildren. Through a series of short, engaging narratives, we learn about their faith, their feelings for one another, their hopes and dreams, and their perception of how God speaks to them through the events of their lives.

Each story stands on its own; their sequence follows the rhythm of the church's year from Advent through Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and Harvest Thanksgiving. With an open tone of wonder and reflection, author Penelope Wilcock explores the ordinary and extraordinary topics of daily life: falling in love, marriage, birth, education, illness, farming, adversity, hospitality, homemaking, and work.

This beautiful large-format paperback is suitable for personal reflection or as a refreshing resource for church and small group discussions.

Permission to photocopy is included.

52 Original Wisdom Stories by Penelope Wilcock has a beautiful cover and is presented to be a devotional for groups or personal reflection. 

Beyond that I can't say much to support this book other than it definitely is not my cup of tea.  I take exception to the book in that it does not have a sound biblical basis and can be offensive to many Christian beliefs. 

As always, when I find I cannot write a positive review, I urge you all to make your own decision about this book and follow your heart.
