This title invites readers into a way of living in time that is alert to both contemporary pressures and rooted ancient wisdom. It asks hard questions about how our injurious attitude toward time has distorted our relationships with our innermost selves, with other people, with the natural world, and with God. As an alternative to the rhetoric of management and mastery, "Receiving the Day" offers a language of attention, poetry and celebration. Bass encourages us to re-evaluate our understanding of the temporal and thereby to participate fully in the Christian practice of knowing time as God's gift.
