Sharpening perceptions of reality and providing spiritual guidance for those in the crux of wilderness experiences. Substantial spiritual nourishment for those who know or sense that Christ is anything but shallow. Encouraging readers to radically (which to Christ is normal) serve God and others.
The author is teaching herself and others to read the world through the lens of the gospel and to become active participants in the local and worldwide body of Christ.

Waiting for Fire to Descend
"Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on your altar and watch for fire to descend." Psalm 5:3
Here is a brilliant physicist turned Anglican priest/theologian/philosopher/Benedictine from Wales now living in the US (President of Renovare) who teaches us about reading the Bible. I've met Chris and have been taught by him. I also had an extended conversation with him. He is dripping with humor and wisdom ... a young desert father. I highly recommend his book, Fire of the Word and him as a speaker.
If you're looking for a refreshing and wise and humorous soul for tutelage in the ways of God...here is one. His life and ministry are refreshing because so many American preachers/teachers are full of egoism and striving for numbers. He is not one.
