What does it mean? Braving the Thin Places

Celtic Wisdom to Create a Space for Grace

by Julianne Stanz

#BravingtheThinPlaces #NetGalley

The author of this title describes the thin place as the space where one feels a breakthrough from the ordinary into the extraordinary. This space may be found in major life events such as birth or death when one is deeply moved, but may also be present when one is deeply touched, as by a piece of music.

The author views the thin place as a religious one where there is a “discernible sense of sacredness.” She notes that this concept began within Celtic tradition many years past and is still useful today. Ms. Stanz observes that these spaces are important because they allow us to slow down and find what is most important. Some of these places are very real, as for example Glendalough in Ireland, while others may be found within.

This title is both spiritual and religious. Those to whom it speaks will feel that is is something special. Here is room for thought and reflection.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Loyola Press for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
