Where the Light Shines Through: Discerning God in Everyday Life
Wes Avram's charming book, "Where the Light Shines Through, insists that "the adventure of knowing God is given its texture by a full, divine sort of sensuality" and that we can experience God in the ordinary as well as the extraordinary. Including stories from his own life and ministry and grounding his reflection in Scripture, Avram canvases a range of human experience from Christmas pageants to jury duty. He closes with an appeal to the church to stay tuned to the Spirit in its midst, as well as a note on the way preaching unites the realms of Christian experience: soul, world, and church. Winning and wise, "Where the Light Shines Through will draw all readers looking for new ways to see and hear God in the everyday.
