Editorial Reviews

Review

In No Ordinary Time, Jan Phillips has packed a lifetime of AHAs - thoughts that suddenly give us clarity about ourselves and other selves, the world around us. You will keep sentences in your mind, on your bulletin board, in your pocket and in your heart. --Gloria Steinem

Jan Phillips weaves an intriguing and inspiring tapestry synthesizing the wisdom embodied in an ancient tradition with the spiritual awaking engaging sojourners of the 21st century. This book provides a creative synthesis from monastery to market-place, from monastic time to the sacredness of every day, and every hour therein. Jan Phillips has provided an inspiring resource for our time. --Diarmuid O'Murchu

No Ordinary Time is no ordinary book--prayer, profundity, tradition, and future all come together here in this excellent book--and well written besides! --Richard Rohr, OFM

I can't wait until I have a whole week to reread it beginning to end in the manner for which it was written.

She has had an amazing life journey, and I am so appreciative that she is willing to bare her soul and share her many experiences through her creative talent.
Janet
It is uplifting, it gives the reader a positive feeling for the outcome of the world during a time when the world seems to be getting darker and darker.

Format: Paperback
Jan Phillips has created a book that provides an invitation to re-think our concepts of religion, of spirituality, of God, and of life as we live it and as it will advance toward the step after this existence. She accomplishes this in the format of the medieval Book of Hours, that revered but near forgotten method for people to stay spiritually minded: each chapter is titled after the days of the week, and each of these seven days is divided into the format of the Hour - Matins (midnight), Lauds (sunrise), Prime (6 AM)Terce (9 AM), Sext (noon), None (3 PM), Vespers (sunset), and Compline (9PM). The named chapters are Monday/Awakening, Tuesday/Discipline and Practice, Wednesday/Creativity and New Cosmology, Thursday/The Mystery of Evil, Friday/Beyond Duality, Saturday/Joy and Desire, and Sunday/Mysticism and Oneness. Careful attention to all of these signs provides insight into the direction this very wise writer wishes to guide us.

Phillips was raised a Catholic and even entered a convent to become a nun, but when her concept of God was challenged she left the convent and entered a life of seeking the real meaning of creation and of the oneness that binds us all. In a warm yet very learned manner Phillips explores not only her Christian upbringing she challenged as a postulate, but she also includes the spiritual practices of Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Native American, atheism and post-theism. 'This book is designed ... to give people a way to stay spiritually grounded throughout the day. it is based on the premise that we are in consort with our own Source and Creator, the Invisible one known as God and the visible organic one known as earth.

Format: Paperback
I have been on a spiritual quest since my son died 3 years ago. Sometimes it is hard to embrace the old, accepted religious teachings when your world seems upside down.

When I found this book, it was like finding a kindred soul who was much further down the same path with great insights to share. Author Jan Phillips has a unique background, starting out as a nun and becoming a spiritual adventurer traveling around the world. This has obviously led to an awakening in her life.

The premise of the book can be found in the first few lines:

"These are no ordinary times. We are witnessing and participating in an evolutionary leap unlike anything in history.

There is evidence in the human family of an upward shift in consciousness, and maturing spirituality, a connectedness that grows more intimate and global by the day. And that uplift is countered by the dissolution of myths that no longer serve us and demise of institutions that have under-pinned our culture since the beginning of history."

The book is a compilation of ideas, personal stories, reverence, praise lamentations and poetic writings by the author. The format is based on the medieval Book of Hours, but the content is actually as much about philosophy as religion. And it is not religious in the traditional way. There are seven chapters titled after the days of the week:

1) Monday - Awakening
2) Tuesday - Discipline and Practice
3) Wednesday - Creativity and The New Cosmology
4) Thursday - The Mystery of Evil
5) Friday - Beyond Duality
6) Saturday - Joy and Desire
7) Sunday - Mysticism and Oneness

The book is not a story that must be followed.

Format: Paperback
I have so enjoyed this book...incredible truth and wisdom in it.....I have already reread parts several times, and plan to go back through the entire book again. More wisdom than I have ever gotten in any Sunday school class....so much of what Jan Phillips has written I have felt so in sync with. Many times I have felt the restriction of religious dogma; but through Jan's book, I have felt incredible freedom and expansion through the energy of love and the acceptance of life. Her writing resonates with my soul. Her poems, included throughout the book are so incredibly beautiful and touching that I found myself having to stop reading and let her wisdom soak in. She has had an amazing life journey, and I am so appreciative that she is willing to bare her soul and share her many experiences through her creative talent.
