Abstract:

The author chronicles his own spiritual journey and describes with honesty the difficult decisions he made along the way. Girzone has attracted a following with his series of novels that imagine Jesus living in the contemporary world. Here, he recounts the long, complicated, and often painful process he went though as he sought to find peace with his beliefs. He writes about hard decisions that set him on unexpected paths and about the immense feelings of loneliness he experienced in making those choices. In thoughtful and thought-provoking reflections he brings to life the years of searching and the deep, critical thinking that gave him the courage to embrace his beliefs, opening a world of excitement and adventure for him.--From publisher description.
