The 20th century conferred many changes to the way we live our lives. Wars of unbelievable scope changed the relationships between global superpowers. Diverse ideologies created a complex and confusing political landscape. Globalization, the internet and wireless communications shrank the world and brought its citizens closer together. Yet, at times, we seem farther apart than ever before. And for all the advances we have made, we seem to have lost our bearing on the compass guiding our religious pilgrimage. We know much, but doubt more. We embrace new technology yet abandon our faith in the old ways. In the Garden Alone is a collection of sermons and essays centering on faith in the age of faithlessness. A spiritual journey of exploration through the realms of theology, philosophy, love and life, the book is written from the perspective of a preacher who believed in the ways of the Christian Church but acknowledged that they needed reform. It analyzes scripture while firmly rooting itself in the secular world. It is at once a welcoming invitation to intellectual and spiritual rumination and a call to worship; it reminds us that the garden still exists, transcending worldly strife, waiting to be rediscovered.

Luther Crady, Jr. began his pilgrimage in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. The path led through Arkansas, Kentucky, South Carolina and West Virginia. Three years of military duty in Korea with the United States Marine Crops was followed by enrollment and subsequent graduation from Columbia College, the University of South Carolina and Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. He served for a time as director of a community-based rehabilitation home for juvenile girls in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Having served churches in both the South Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences, he and his wife, Patricia, completed a 40-year ministry in the best tradition of United Methodist circuit riders in North Carolina’s Uwharrie Mountains. He published his first book, By the Waters of Babylon, in 1997. They retired to Clemmons, North Carolina, a small suburb outside Winston-Salem, where he continued his writing.
