Anatomy of Survival by Una Kroll

Book Description

Una Kroll draws on her own experience to explore the spiritual realities of survival. She endured a childhood marked by poverty and marred by a suicide attempt by her mother, eventually becoming a doctor in general practice. Her husband Leo had been a monk working in Africa while she was a nun and their marriage, in Abelard and Heloise manner, caused them to be at the centre of controversy. Her struggles as the leader of the Movement for the Ordination of Women were eventually susccessful leading to her ordinatio as the first woman priest by Archbishop Rowan Williams. She then faced her greatest challenge with the death of her husband. In this sensitive and spiritually insightul account, Una Kroll stresses the value of being aware of the common stages of bereavement, such as guilt at being a survivor and anger at God, while stressing the need to be responsive to individual experiences of grief. 'Anatomy of Survival' is the most affecting and useful account of survival and faith since C.S. Lewis' 'A Grief Observed.' 'I woke each morning with dread, knowing that the day would feel like being in a desert land without sufficient water to last until nightfall.'
