Synopsis: In this rich melange of art, literature, music, and personal reflection, Steven Purcell reveals his own intimate journey through Lent--a path that travels deep within the soul and illuminates the staggering depths of God's love. Weaving spiritual insights with artistic expression--the paintings of Rembrandt and Caravaggio . . . the writings of St. Francis and George MacDonald . . . the music of Vaughan Williams . . . the poetry of T.S. Eliot, Denise Levertov, and John Donne--Even Among These Rocks is a stirring celebration of creativity infused by the Holy Spirit throughout the ages.

In lucid prose and with bold sincerity, Purcell charts the geography of the human spirit and invites us to journey with him in the footsteps of Christ--the journey of poverty and redemption that ultimately leads us home.

Featuring full-color illustrations on every page and rendered in hand-written calligraphy by the author, Even Among These Rocks is a stunning gift book for anyone traveling the path of Christian spirituality.

From the Author: (from the Preface) "The idea for this book began with a decision to participate as fully as I could in the forty days of Lent. The themes which make up the seven chapters which follow are the collective result of that journey. They are not original themes. While many others have dealt with them and given their own accounts in one form or another, this book is a personal record of what I saw and heard. I do not expect it will perfectly reflect the Lenten experience of everyone, but it is my hope that others will recognize these vignettes from their own experiences of poverty and redemption and be drawn into communion with the God of grace.

There is an intentional order to the following chapters, but I do not mean to imply by this order that the journey of Lent-or the journey of faith-is a linear ascent toward a static goal. Nor do I wish to convey the idea that the journey described is a map for others to follow. What is important is how the content and structure of the book suggests a movement forward, but forward in such a way that the traveller is consistently led back to his or her beginning. The Lenten pilgrimage is not about developing greater spiritual competence, nor achieving mystical enlightenment. Rather, it is an exercise in following. Specifically, it means following Christ and-in that journey of faith-discovering the truth about ourselves and the largeness of God's love."
