Description - Pause for Thought by Gerald O'Collins

In Pause for Thought, prominent theologian picks up where he left off in his previous book, Reflections for Busy People, offering new themes of reflection in the areas of prayer, Jesus, and God, and conveying in his popular, experiential, conversational, and accessible writing style new opportunities for prayer reflection.

In part one the author begins with six images of what prayer is like and then provides some sample texts for practicing prayer. Part two offers brief reflections on the story of Jesus from the annunciation and the nativity, through episodes in his ministry (e.g., his teaching and healing activity), and continues through the transfiguration and the Last Supper. Parts three and four propose “pauses for thought” on the passion, resurrection, and risen life of Jesus. These two parts consider the differences between the passion and Easter narratives offered by the four Gospels. These differences can enrich our life of prayer. Part five reflects on “the God of all comfort,” God in the various seasons of our lives, and in the final feast of heaven.

This particularly relevant book aims to help individual Christians, ministers, and members of religious institutes, who lead busy lives but wish to “pause for thought” regularly.
