3 DE VINCK, CHRISTOPHER. Only The Heart Knows How To Find Them: Precious Memories For A Faithless Time.
Penguin Books, New York: 1991. Second Printing. s Softcover. Good condition. 
Christopher de Vinck writes that this is "a collection of memories, and in memory there stays with us the truth of our lives--not judicial truth, poetic truth; not accurate evidence, but instead wisdom, that notion we spend the rest of our lives trying to recapture." To read this book is to encounter those home truths once more, with the quiet jolt of recognition that occurs only when we come up against the real thing. Although de Vinck writes about childhood and adolescence, marriage and family career and loneliness, his true subject is deeper and more mysterious: the ebb and flow of doubt and faith that underlies our daily lives. "These are the wonderful, thoughtful and sensitive, and lyrical and personal reflections of a teacher, a poet, an essayist, but, most of all, a wise and humane pilgrim who has a lot to offer the rest of us, his fellow pilgrims." -- Robert Coles
