Description

Drawing on a lifetime of Christian pilgrimage, David Adam reflects on biblical encounters with the divine and offers profound insights – on grief and glory, emptiness and fulfilment; repentance and forgiveness; loving and being loved – that will transform the way we live, and the way we relate to God, here and now.

For example, God’s question to Adam, ‘Where are you?’ is relevant to us all; Abraham’s long journey of hearing and obeying (and learning the art of having no agenda) is ours too; Jacob’s great discovery – that heaven is found on earth and earth is raised to heaven – helps us become aware that we often already possess what we think we’re searching for; Moses’ desert experiences of grief and glory encourage us that we journey forward to the Promised Land, while Elijah’s powerlessness reminds us that God often calls us out of darkness and weakness, for we may need stillness to hear him.
