Read 'Being Bread' as one hungry for the deeper things! Feb. 28 2013
By Tom K. Stephenson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Planned to read Stephen Muse's book slowly throughout the Lenten season as part of my spiritual discipline. It's not even the 3rd Sunday in Lent and I've finished the book, it was that compelling. Muse not only pays close attention to the people and world around him, but to the tidal forces at work in his own soul. The result is an exceptional book of spiritual insights and a deeper conversation than the reader may have anticipated. Bless you Stephen for being bread for my soul!

Not only norishment for my being, but salve for my soul July 13 2013
By jeffery D skinner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wonderfully written! This book is salve to my wounded soul! The stories in here are penetrating areas that I have been walling off. I first read the title as "being bread" but it translated in my mind as DOING bread.

It occurred to me I have been trying to "DO" being.
None of these people in these stories planned out "being bread". They just were, and and that they were "Being Bread."

The stories in this book are born from years of being present, not only with the creator, but also with others.

Life Stories March 7 2013
By Audiophile - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really liked this book because the author uses his own life experiences to illustrate the spiritual concepts he is trying to convey. There are too many Christian books out there that are urging you on to the Christian life and you can feel lectured. Stephen Muse uses many of his own "stories" to get his point across so that you can enter into them and feel the feelings of the people involved and feel involved yourself. It is much easier to "get the point" for yourself if you are seeing it in a third party.
Additionally, there are a set of questions at the end of each chapter so you can further ponder the concepts included there in and hopefully lead to a deeper look within.

This book is quite compelling, indeed. Stephen's words are an invitation to enter into an intimate dialogue that will nourish the heart along the journey towards relationship with God and others. These stories offer profound insight and open up a fountain of wonder in the heart.

Inspiring, challenging, and calming Oct. 26 2013
By Buddy Hammil - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stephen Muse has done it again. He shares from the heart in such an honest authentic way that one cannot help but listen from the heart. I do not feel lectured or preached at, but rather I am drawn into his stories. I find myself identifying personally with the human encounters and the everyday situations of which he lives and writes. His gut-level honesty about his own spiritual growth pains allow the reader (me) to more fully grapple with their own (MY own). Even as I am invited to wrestle with my own spiritual-human growth, I am also strangely calmed by Muse's perspective of God's expansive love and open invitation to us... to join with him just as we are. In addition to the powerful personal recounting of tragedy, anxiety and just plain living the human condition, Dr Muse provides thoughtful discussion questions for each chapter that are helpful for individual or group work. This book could be used to enhance a Clinical Pastoral Education curriculum, Counseling supervision group or a weekly bible study. I will treasure it as a pearl in my personal library. Thanks Steven Muse for simply being bread and demonstrating how we too can be bread.
