"These powerful reflections on biblical themes by one of today's most popular religious writers point up the truth that the darkness of doubt is often necessary to provoke a hunger for God. The Hungering Dark towers as one of Frederick Buechner's best statements on contemporary belief challenged by doubt." from book cover

"Buechner's words, both written and spoken, have the power to revolutionize and revitalize belief and faith. He reveals the presence of God in the midst of daily life. He faces and embraces difficult questions and doubt as essential components of our lives, rather than as enemies that destroy us. "Listen to your life!" is his clarion call. This theme pervades this definitive collection of sermons, delivered throughout Buechner's lifetime. Presented chronologically, they provide a clear picture of the development of his theology and thinking." from publisher… (lisätietoja)

In this book -- the first in his lexical trilogy -- Buechner puts the language of God, the universe, and the human spirit under his wry linguistic microscope. In his often ironic and always keen-sighted reflection on such terms as agnostic, envy, love, and sin, he invites us to look at these everyday words in new and enlightening ways. Revised and expanded edition

One of the strangest paradoxes of the Christian faith is that it must fashion victory out of defeat and hope out of despair. The author brilliantly meditates on certain scripture passages which both haunt and hallow him to hear who hears. A book for every Christian who wants to grow in his faith.
