I have been hearing about this book for decades but never read it. I seem to recall hearing someplace that it wasn’t in line with Catholic teaching because it portrayed God as not involved in our lives.
I was therefore a bit surprised last week to hear a priest (I think it was the priest and not the deacon) use the book as the subject of part of a homily.
I’d like to hear some more opinions on this book, preferably from people who have read the book, but if you haven’t read the book and just want to share something your priest said about it, that’s okay too, just make sure you state that you haven’t read the book.
Would this book be a productive thing for a Catholic firm in their faith - not someone new to the faith or someone just considering whether to join the Church or trying to understand Catholic teaching - to read? Is it worth spending the time? Does it have any really good insights? If you read it, did you think it was helpful?
