Beyond the edge : spiritual transitions for adventurous souls
Beyond the edge : spiritual transitions for adventurous souls
Mayes, Andrew D.2013
Books
Jesus calls his disciples to follow him, but where does he lead us? Responding to Jesus' summons, we find ourselves leaving familiar certainties and securities behind as we step out boldly in faith. Old boundaries dissolve as we are led into liminal spaces - exhilarating situations, new places of discovery and radical spiritual growth. In such experiences Christ reveals himself to us anew. The place of risk is the threshold of the divine. Beyond the Edge is for people who wish to go deeply into the spiritual life, for spiritual directors, and for those who walk with others on their prayer journey. It can be used individually or in groups. At the heart of the Christian life is the story of an exploration -- a journey into something mysterious and amazing: the experience of God. Dr Andrew Mayes uses his own travel experience in the Holy Land to encourage us on the exploration of faith . . . [and] familiar material from Scripture and the Church's worship to guide us into new and unfamiliar spiritual territory.
