Girzone, Joseph F.
Never alone : a personal way to God / Joseph F. Girzone.
New York : Doubleday, 1994.
Never Alone is Girzone’s most intimate book to date, and has already brought him many new readers because of its accepting message. In it, he unveils his personal way to God — a way of such wisdom, sympathy, and generosity that anyone can follow it and find satisfaction, happiness, and serenity. As Father Girzone guides the reader, he brings us before a god who is neither silent nor condemning, but a patient God who heals gently and thoroughly, a realistic God who knows quite well how we function. We may be shocked or ashamed by what we see in ourselves, but God understands. In Never Alone, Joseph Girzone unfolds the spirituality of love and forgiveness, and directs his readers toward peace.

First published in 1968, this revised edition of John Sanford’s classic exploration of the psychological and spiritual significance of dreams draws on the work of C.G. Jung to show how dreams can help us find healing and wholeness and reconnect us to a living spiritual world.
Featuring a new preface by the author and using case histories from his own experience as a counselor, Dreams traces the role of dreams in the Bible, analyzing their nature and examining how Christians, through fear and the constraints of dogma, have come to reject the visions through which God speaks to humanity, making dreams — in Sanford’s words — “God’s forgotten language.”
