I’m honored to receive this insightful review of my book Entering the Desert from Anathema Publishing Ltd.!
“I just finished Desert. I am a very fast reader but had to keep looking up terms I either didn’t know or felt were being used in a way I didn’t exactly appreciate. Then, I realized that was probably the point. So, I read a chapter or a page or two at a time and let the text work it’s way through.
The older I get, the less force I use in understanding a different idea. I find setting the book down for two weeks and switching to a couple of “light” books is very helpful. The stronger message is processing and needs space. When I went back, the understanding was much greater.
Slowing down and thinking or praying or meditating is difficult – waiting for the answer can take weeks or even years – but is the only way to figure out what our path should be.
I knew this but am so glad for the reminder. The message of Christianity is the same, despite the different appearance. As I got to the end, I couldn’t help but think of my favorite hymn.
Now, I’m on to Golgotha.
Well done, Craig!”
