The Sacred Slow


A Holy Departure From Fast Faith

By Alicia Britt Chole

52 experiences in unhurried honesty with God. In today’s world we are doing things faster and faster all the time. We want our food fast, we want to drive fast cars, etc., but one thing that we need to take at a slower pace is our learning about God and His Love. In her book, Alicia Britt Chole gives us 52 experiences divided into twelve, what she calls movements, to help us slowdown in hearing God Word and what He wants us to know and do. You will learn about His concepts, His word, theology of time and space and other movements. Each reading can be used as a daily reading or devotion, as a weekly time of study or however you wish. You will start with a quote, then a list of items needed for that section. She shares a short story about the question she is asking and give a section called a guided response, offers thought focuses for that section.

The book is setup to be used by yourself or it can be used in a study group. I liked the idea of the book but I did not like the method used to get her point across.  I did not care for some of the suggestion in the guided response sections, I think the reader should do their own responses and journaling.  The subject of the book is good.

I received this book free from Handlebar Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
