Harold Fickett expresses an attitude many of us share in today’s society — a society in which scientific thinking can sometimes be equated with the whole truth and faith identified with ignorance and fanaticism. Things in Heaven and Earth: Exploring the Supernatural investigates the mystery at the heart of spirituality: those divine interventions that indicate God’s love and care — the supernatural.
The contributors to Things in Heaven and Earth detail their personal approaches to this fascinating and, at times, sensational subject. Internationally acclaimed authors Madeleine L’Engle, Ron Hansen, Doris Betts, Paul Mariani, Larry Woiwode, and many others share their experiences with the supernatural in searching and deeply-felt reflections. They recount their struggles to understand and appreciate God’s enigmatic ways. A guide full of hope, Things in Heaven and Earth brings us to the boundaries of human experience where the supernatural transforms our conceptions of life as well as our hearts.
