9781910674444: Death Comes for the Deconstructionist: A Novel: A novel

Mystery, beauty, enchantment, incompleteness, desire, suffering . . . In this highly readable book, John Pritchard explores around 20 experiences common to us all. Each of these, he believes, offers us a route to a more authentic existence, an insight into some aspect of the divine. Whether you are just starting out on spiritual exploration, or have some experience of 'signs of transcendence' this book will reassure you are on the right track, and point the way forward to the 'beyond in the everyday' the 'something more' we are forever designed to seek. 'What do we do when, as John Pritchard puts it, the burning bush has gone out and nothing is left but wet ash? Well, for a start, something like this: speak to the everyday post-religious twenty-first century world in its own terms, with respect and without concealment, about the ways in which, in everybody's experience, the damp ashes still gleam unpredictably with the promise of something more.' Francis Spufford, author of Unapologetic 'In John Pritchard we encounter a true genius in contemporary spiritual writing - one who is gifted in expressing the profound, yet with a light touch and an easy-going approach. We discover in Something More that to encounter God's presence afresh, all we need bring is our humanity, humility and sense of wonder.' The Very Revd Prof. Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford 'Once we know how vast the universe is and how little we know of it, it's hard to go on believing in God as a powerful parent figure. John Pritchard faces the challenge head on. He rethinks Christian spirituality in a way that opens horizons rather than closing them down.' Linda Woodhead, Professor of Sociology of Religion, Lancaster University

Book Description SPCK Publishing, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When Jon Mote is hired to investigate the murder of his erstwhile mentor, literary star Richard Pratt, the grad school dropout feels woefully unequal to the task. Skittering on the edge of madness, his only source of hope is the dogged love of his developmentally disabled sister, Judy, who serves as cheerleader, critic and moral compass.Soon the siblings find themselves haunting the neighbourhoods of Minneapolis and St Paul, Minnesota - from crime scenes to the halls of academe - exposing a series of suspects along the way. When he stumbles upon Pratt s terrible secret, Mote is prompted to discover an equally dreadful mystery in his own past - a revelation that accelerates his descent into darkness and puts both himself and Judy at grave risk.
