Who are we, and exactly where are we going? The answers to these two questions change the way we live our lives.
Expert biblical scholar Nina Sophie Heereman tackles these concerns in her new book, Athirst for the Spirit: Biblical Wisdom for Desert Times, by drawing on the timeless wisdom of the Bible. What does the Bible have to say about the significance of our sex, and in particular the Spirit-bearing mission of woman, and how we are to navigate the barren landscape of this life? These seven essays will help you understand the answers to these questions.
In Athirst for the Spirit, we learn why God created humanity, how the Church came to be, and how we might use the Scriptures to make it through the difficult times in which we find ourselves.
“From Eden’s king and queen to the Lamb’s Wedding Feast, Dr. Heereman opens our hearts to the Scriptural vision of man and woman. Proposing practical counsels for the spiritual journey, she marshals biblical texts radiant with the splendor of the Church.”
Professor of Theology, St. Patrick’s Seminary & University and Co-Founder of the Avila Institute of Spiritual Formation
“Nina Heereman’s variations on the theme of God’s limitless creativity prove to us that he has and will go to great—and often unusual—lengths to win the hearts of his people. With Dr. Heereman’s insights, you will begin to recognize the ways in which God works in your own life to bring about good.”
