This book looks at how the use of story can capture and embody our spiritual experiences, whether human or divine. It is a collection of meditations on how God initiates all experiences and how we respond to God's initiative through our relationship with the Divine One. The stories challenge us to reflect more deeply on how we encounter the Spirit in our religious traditions as well as in the personal experiences of our lives.

About the Author:

John Shea is a theologian and storyteller who lectures nationally and internationally on storytelling in world religions, faith-based health care, contemporary spirituality, and the spirit at work movement. Currently, he is the Director of Programs and Developmental Processes for the Ministry Leadership Center, headquartered in Sacramento, California.

Review:

"This book is about divine and human love. It explores how two are interwoven, how human mediates the divine and how the divine suffuses the human. It explores the resistance of the human and the persistence of the divine. Both are not what they seem. They are more. This book is also about stories. It explores how contemporary life stories interact with inherited stories; and how the hearing of the inherited stories uncovers the depth of present experience and funds the future. Most of all it is about Jesus and the experience of life that it communicates. Finally this book is about mortal victory. It comes down to a simple, unvarnished truth. Love is more than life and death."
