Sailing Between the Stars: Musings on the Mysteries of Faith by Stephen James is one of the latest books that I have been reading. It is a very good book and I have enjoyed reading it.
Here is the write-up on the back of the book that does a great job explaining about the book:
We wlive in a world of tension, and as much as we'd sometimes like it to, our faith was not meant to relieve that tension but to make some sense of it. Through stunning essays and evocative stories, Steven James explores the wonder, paradox, and presence of Jesus in life today.
Without trying to decipher or diminish the mysteries of a life of faith, James leads you deeper into the rich texture of the breathtaking story God is telling our planet. Rather than limiting god to human understanding, you can discover the joy found in not being able to ever fully comprehend the Creator or the depth of his love. From funny to poignant to profound, but always pointing to God, James stories help you develop a worldview of wonder at the incredible world in which we live.
There is never a better time to get to know this God who is illogical, unreasonable, unrealistic, and incredibly and unmistakeably true.
I enjoyed listening to his stories and his insights as he unpacked the truths that he has come to. The readings were also very great because they were not very long and there were many chapters. Thus, reading a chapter while at the doctor office, at swimming practice, at gymnastics, sitting in the car at Meal on Wheels and .... were manageable.
I would definitely reccommend the book and for me, I was very happy because I picked it up on the discount rack at Berean's for $ 1.50. As one who loves to read, it does not get much better than that: a good book at a great price.
