Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Gregory I. Carlson

Narrated By: Gregory I. Carlson

Date: October 2013

Duration: 5 hours 1 minutes

Summary:

Illuminate the truth of the gospels by exploring timeless fables.

Fables delight us and teach us the most important lessons about our lives. As this retreat shows, they also illuminate the message of the Gospel.

You will join one of the leading experts on fables on a 12-part retreat that uses the fables of Aesop, Fontaine, and others to help you deepen and enjoy your Christian spiritual life. Underneath their seemingly simple narratives, fables demonstrate the most universal themes of existence.

Your presenter is Rev. Gregory Carlson, a Jesuit priest, professor, and the founder of the Fable Collection at Creighton University. His delightful renditions of such timeless Aesop stories as "The Tortoise and the Hare" and "The Fox and the Grapes" will draw you in and delight you. As you explore these fables, you will come to a deeper spirituality of gratitude and fuller image of God.

Steeped in the tradition of Ignatian spirituality, Rev. Carlson invites you to discernment in your daily life. You will also explore the dynamics of the Ignatian Two Standards.

As you explore the fables, you will discover novel and engaging methods of understanding humility. You will look at the ways in which the Christian life is magnified by Aesop's fables, but you will also see how the Gospel expounds on virtues that are sometimes absent in fables.

If you are looking to deepen your spiritual life while enjoying delightful stories, you will love this engaging retreat.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.
