Publisher's Description

We live in a time of bridging that invites us to learn, and then to accept with utmost respect, that what has provided us with a certain wisdom and security for several thousand years of movement around our star is today ebbing away and has, in fact, done so for at least a century or more. A time of bridging involves allowing for this realization and, with serenity, courage, and trust, seeking the footprints revealing who has walked among us unobserved all this time. Today this realization is lighting up with ever greater brilliance and being recognized and acknowledged with ever more urgency due to our scientific discoveries and spiritual insights. In this new book, with the wisdom of years, Barbara Fiand explores what time of bridging offers in new insights, and how we can understand our Christian faith in this new time.

Endorsements

This book marks a paradigm shift between a faith of the past obsessed with certitude and finality and an organic evolutionary sense of faith beyond boundaries that isolate and paralyse us. In her attempt to bridge the divide, Barbara Fiand creates a bold, prophetic synthesis of Christian faith and a fresh articulation within the cosmic worldview of our day. For some it may be a bridge too far, but for a rapidly growing body of Christian seekers, it is a vision that will challenge and inspire, affirm and provoke. An invaluable resource for faith-filled discipleship in the 21st. century.

Diarmuid O’Murchu, Priest, Psychologist, Author, and Specialist in Adult Faith Development

The last 50 years of development in a post Vatican II Church has generated an outpouring of material in every major dimension of Catholicity: scripture studies, moral theology, liturgy, ecclesiology and interfaith relationships.  And yet there is a great pastoral need still to be met.  The bridging of the gap between old answers to all these issues and the new insights into them in the light of both science and theology is just waiting—in fact demanding—to be filled.  Barbara Fiand’s “Faith seeking Understanding” fills that need.  The book is highly accessible, refreshingly direct and spiritually profound.  If a book like this were used in every parish discussion group in the Catholic community, we might all find ourselves on the same page of Catholic belief again.

—Joan Chittister, OSB
