About this title
Riding the Crest of the Waves is Russell Ruffino's fresh and bold wake-up call to let go of the past and open up to rethinking the message and power of Christianity The book features thirty-six short essays on religious, philosophical, and ethical subjects. Along the way the reader will become increasingly enchanted by the personal anecdotes emanating from Ruffino's years of ministering to others that will make the reader smile, laugh heartedly, and thirst for more. The book hopes to encourage people, Christians in particular, to think and to uestion that which surrounds and challenges them in a changing world increasingly dominated by science and technology. Ruffino adds that "Christians have to embrace and celebrate the challenge of science and technology, and what faith and science together can contribute to our understanding of God's creation, and particularly to our understanding of the earth, our island home." Riding the Crest of the Waves targets men and women of all age groups, as well as every educational level. Ruffino seeks to help redefine, refocus, and redirect what Christianity in particular, and religion in general, should mean for people, for the world, and for the future. As Ruffino insightfully declares, "If Christianity is going to offer food and drink that can change people's lives and change the world, then the Church has to offer food and drink that is not canned, pre-packaged, or frozen. Christianity has to offer food and drink in daring new recipes." Russell Ruffino is an Anglican-Episcopal priest who served for more than thirty-five years in the United States and Italy. He earned a licentiate on theology and a doctorate in philosophy from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
