5.0 out of 5 stars True stories of faith and hope...., August 25, 2004
This review is from: Unlikely Ways Home: Real Life Spiritual Detours (Hardcover)
"Unlikely Ways Home" is a wonderful book filled with stories of faith and hope found in the lives of ordinary people. In these stories, Fr. Edward Beck describes the challenges they endured, each different in their own way, and the underlying grace that helped them to reconnect with themselves, with others and with God. It would be difficult not to feel empathy or some kind of connection with those whose stories are being told. Their thoughts and feelings will linger with you.

Fr. Edward has an incredible sense of insight and his style of writing is thoroughly interesting and engaging. The stories flow very well, helping the reader become drawn into each story. As you read, you begin to believe that if we perservere through the struggles in life - as these people have - and find strength in God with thought and prayer, we will be alright. This book is an excellent reminder that ultimately we are all the same - good or bad, we all have our own stories. Hopefully Fr. Edward will continue to write and enlighten us with his thoughts and honest approach, whatever the subject may be.
