• God's Foolishness A Spirituality of Heart

God's Foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength. (1 Corinthians 1:25).


Reflecting on his own life and on the lives and teachings of a range of spiritual writers, Brian Gallagher discovers God's foolishness, 'wiser than human wisdom'.  He gladly acknowledges the influence of these women and men on his personal spirituality, a spiritual heart.

He calls them 'prophets, leaders, saints', and though human wisdom held little expectation for any of them, God's foolishness saw them with very different eyes.



Brian Gallagher is a Catholic priest in the community of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heat, with degrees in science, theology and spiritual direction, including a doctoral thesis that researched discernment of spirits.  His ministry for fifty years has been in spirituality and spiritual direction, predominately at the Heart of Life Centre in Melbourne; and now in retreat ministry in Shoreham.  Brian is the author of two earlier books Pray As You Are and Taking God to Heart as well as the first edition of Communal Wisdom, co-authored by Sue Richardson pbvm, Set Me Free and The Eyes of God
