Read full description of the books Beyond Our Selves:"Why am I here?" It's an inevitable question, one accompanied by a restless, nagging feeling that you should be getting more out of life or putting more into it. The search for something more -- something beyond your own self -- begins when your spirit cries out for its Maker and refuses to be satisfied with anything less. At that point, how do you go about finding God? How does an ordinary person gain intimacy with Him?
Beyond Our Selves tells Catherine Marshall's spiritual adventure as she searched for such answers on her quest for a meaningful life, a practical faith, and a closer relationship with God. She shares significant moments of her life, using deeply inspiring thoughts and offering guidance on topics such as forgiveness, suffering, miracles, unanswered prayer, and healing. Both inspiring and practical, this book has touched more than two million people around the world, challenging them to stretch their beliefs, deepen their faith, and revitalize their purpose. It will do the same for you as you search for greater meaning in your life.
Read information about the authorMarshall was born in Johnson City, Tennessee. She was the daughter of the Reverend John Ambrose Wood and Leonora Whitaker Wood. From the age of nine until her graduation from high school, Marshall was raised in Keyser, West Virginia, where her father served as pastor of a Presbyterian church from 1924 to 1942.
While a junior at Agnes Scott College, she met Peter Marshall, marrying him in 1936. The couple moved to Washington, DC, where her husband served as pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church and Chaplain of the United States Senate.
In 1940, Marshall contracted tuberculosis, for which at that time there was no antibiotic treatment. She spent nearly three years recovering from the illness. Her husband died in 1949 of a heart attack, leaving her to care for their 9-year-old son, Peter John Marshall. He later also became a minister and author.
Marshall wrote a biography of her husband, A Man Called Peter, published in 1951. It became a nationwide success and was adapted as a film of the same name, released in 1955. Her success encouraged her to keep writing.
Marshall wrote or edited more than 30 books, which have sold over 16 million copies. They include edited collections of Peter Marshall's sermons and prayers, and her own inspirational writings. Her most successful books were A Man Called Peter (1951); and her novel, Christy (1967), which was inspired by the story of her mother's time in the mountains teaching the impoverished children of Appalachia. Christy was adapted as a CBS television series, starring Kellie Martin, beginning in 1994.
In 1959, Marshall married Leonard LeSourd, who was the editor of Guideposts Magazine for 28 years. Together they founded a book imprint, Chosen Books. They had three children, Linda, Chester and Jeffery.
Marshall died on March 18, 1983 at the age of 68. She was buried alongside her first husband.
