9780060611637: Room Called Remember: Uncollected Pieces

"A Room Called Remember" brings together some of Buechner's finest writings on faith, love, and the power of words in the form of essays, addresses, and sermons. Here Buechner explores autobiography as theology, offers exhilarating reflections on biblical passages, and leads us into the "room called Remember, " that "still room within us all where the past lives on as part of the present, ...where with patience, with clarity, with quietness of heart, we remember consciously to remember the lives we have lived."
