Many people today reach for God but can't find him. Christians and non-Christians as well, are living with quietly desperate and yearning hearts, asking: “Where is God and grace?” … “Where can I find enduring peace?” … “How do I rest?” … “Will I ever change?” … “Can I dare to hope?” … “When will I see God’s kingdom come?”
As the third millennium finds its legs, we seem to be spinning faster, working longer, and grappling for time. Messages take moments to reach millions in cyberspace, but the sheer pace and nature of things—and attempts by the church to be “relevant”—are leaving Christian spirituality threadbare and languishing in adolescence. Without a full-bodied biblical spirituality, the yearning keep reaching but still can’t find God.
Paul Marshall writes for such yearning souls, boldly refreshing the biblical truth that we can find God and consistently live close to him if we have a grown-up spiritual life versed in love. With warm encouragement and challenge, Barefoot Revolution pushes past flashy substitutes that don’t work, to carefully uncover the ancient heart-rhythms fueling biblical spirituality. Paul also addresses the “how to,” providing a discipleship model, tools, and practices that will leave you with all that you need to road-test a wonderful, deeper spiritual life with God.
Moses at the burning bush symbolised an inner attitude towards God that is integral to biblical spirituality.
