About-

These 150 meditations are paraphrases of our common human experience and therefore a way of uniting our divisive world. We find three voices providing food for our journey. The Mortal voice speaks of loss, rejection, honesty, faithfulness, integrity, discovery, joy, and God's continuing presence in it all. The Mediator voice is at times teacher, then mentor, and often narrator. In a very inspiring way, the voice of God is a feminine voice, Mother (El Shaddai, the Hebrew breasted God; womb of our being). Take one meditation a day, in a quiet place, if possible. Chew and savor as nourishment for your mind and soul.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Rev. Martling's language is brief, beautiful, and, on occasion, brilliant. Language varies from conversational ('all the money in the world') to majestic ('Holy and powerful is She!'). 'Sin' and 'the wicked' become more concrete words, 'greed' and 'gossipers.' Verbs such as 'flared' and 'fizzle,' metaphors such as 'Divine Lover,' 'great tsunami,' and 'over my head in guilt,' and personification such as 'sinfulness whispers' stand out. Here Hebrew poetry worth writing becomes English prose worth reading."

"A fresh, creative, imaginative and compelling insight into spirituality. Voices from the Heart of God's Inspired Word speaks with integrity and inclusivity in the midst of diversity. The three Voices, called Mother, Mortal, and Mediator, speak of anticipation, wonderment, and authenticity. This is a potent wrestling with powers; molding and shaping our minds, hearts, and souls--the real deal."
--Herman Haller
Interim Specialist of Appreciative Inquiry, Church Planning, Conflict Mediation
