Toward Holy Ground delineates the paths which can lead to fruition and fulfillment after middle age. Margaret Guenther, Director of the Center for Christian Spirituality of the General Theological Seminary in New York City, writes about the special rewards of kinship, intercessory prayer, craft, cultivating awareness of God in the small and the ordinary, creating a rule of life, stripping down, and preparing for a good death. Guenther uses St. Anne as a model and wisdom figure for this stage of life where ambiguity, service of others, and wonder are all given free play. Toward Holy Ground deserves a large and appreciative audience.
