Full Product Description
With humour and pastoral sensitivity Martin L. Smith reveals the staleness and oppressive nature of many of our spiritual practices at a time when, more than ever, we need to stand back and let the fresh winds of the Spirit blow in our lives. From the spirituality of shopping to social justice, vocational discernment and channel surfing, the reflections in this book are designed to delight and make us think.
Compass and Stars by Martin L. Smith was published by Canterbury Press in April 2012. The ISBN for Compass and Stars is 9781848251106.

Compass & StarsMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
Lyrical, gentle and yet deeply thoughtful and probing are just some of the words and phrases that come to mind after reading the forty reflections contained within this book. The word I would use that best sums up these three page contemplations of spirituality and daily life, is intelligent. Even when dealing with the vice of channel surfing and the casual way we take the Lord’s name in vain it is done in a flowing, erudite, witty, and intelligent way, with a real grasp of showing complex issues in a simple way, illuminating the everyday in a spiritual manner and awakening the spiritual in the everyday moments.
There are contemplations here on lack of faith, on day planners, shopping, anxiety and healing, on mobile phones, politics, prayer and many more short pieces skilfully weaving the mundane with the spiritual in such an insightful way that we are left with an aching awareness of how much we miss and how much we can yet gain.
A truly wonderful forty day companion that will at times make the reader go ‘Ouch!’ and ‘Oh!’ and ‘maybe’, and above all leave us feeling just a little more aware of those times and places where faith and everyday intersect in our lives.
