The #1 Publishers Weekly religious best-seller now becomes a best-selling paperback! Joseph Girzone, author of Joshua, takes us on a personal spiritual quest in his first book of nonfiction. Joseph Girzone is that singular publishing phenomenon, an author who answers the unasked questions that lie hidden in so many hearts. The wisdom of his spirituality, at once both simple and profound, transcends the many factions of religion and speaks to millions, regardless of background, in a language all can understand. Never Alone is his most intimate book to date, and has already brought him many new readers because of its accepting message. In it, he unveils his personal way to God -- a way of such wisdom, sympathy, and generosity that anyone can follow it and find satisfaction, happiness, and serenity. As Father Girzone guides the reader, he brings us before a god who is neither silent nor condemning, but a patient God who heals gently and thoroughly, a realistic God who knows quite well how we function. We may be shocked or ashamed bv what we see in ourselves, but God understands. In Never Alone, Joseph Girzone unfolds the spirituality of love and forgiveness, and directs his readers toward peace.
JOSEPH GIRZONE retired from the active priesthood in 1981 and embarked on a second career as a writer and international speaker. His bestselling books include Joshua (now being made into a major motion picture for release in spring 2002); Joshua: The Homecoming; A Portrait of Jesus; and The Messenger. He lives in Altamont, New York.
"The non-Christian seeker will find much of value here. A refreshing alternative to the feel-good bromides on the personal religion market." -- Kirkus Reviews.
