Discovering a Kingdom Spirituality
By Chris Webb
An exploration of spirituality through the lens of Jesus' teaching on the Kingdom of God.
God's presence permeates our lives and activities, reverberating throughout all he has created. As we open our lives to that presence, we hear the truth of the gospel spoken to our hearts: the kingdom of God has come to us.
Chris Webb, an Anglican priest and retreat house director, wants us all to enter into that kingdom and to experience its freedom. Written with verve, depth, and uncontainable joy, God-Soaked Life invites us to live in the reality of God's presence in our everyday lives. It's an invitation into the community of God's people, into fearless honesty about our own weaknesses and failures, into the daily experience of God through silence, Scripture and prayer, and into a new life of love and service in the broken world around us. God's kingdom is not far away, a remote and future promise. It is here, now.
Chris Webb is an Anglican priest, author and speaker passionate about helping people experience a richer walk with God by growing in prayer and the spiritual life.
