Details

Familiar Bible stories can easily be lost and forgotten, just as well-loved seasons of the Christian tradition can be taken for granted. Here is a book, written out of a rich ecumenical sympathy and experience, that brings fresh life to the old stories and occasions of the church's year. Vividly written and easy to read, born out of a South Pacific perspective on life and faith, these meditations are woven through with a personal conviction about God's extravagant and unconditional love. The author has a rare gift for making the old stories new, for bringing them alive for contemporary readers and decoding their historical context so they can speak to us today. In the two sections of the book -- meditations based both on gospel readings and on the church's seasons -- he writes with directness, humour and welcome clarity about the workings of divine generosity in our lives.
