Gospel Of Falling Down

Full Product Description

We hear a lot about the gospel of success, whether from Christian or New Age sources. But most of us are more accustomed to failure, or at least not reaching our hopes. Which, surely, is at the heart of the life of Jesus and his message. This book is a radical departure from much of what modern day Christianity (and gurus of all kinds) seem to offer. Rather than seeing Christianity as a group of people trying to change themselves into the "ideal", it describes how such a practice is precisely what Jesus came to liberate us from. It brings a sense of freedom and hope to all those who feel unworthy of just "can't make the grade.

The author, a clergyman, writes with brutal honesty, letting readers into the secret areas of his life, with all its faults and failings. The lessons are authentic, learnt by someone who knows how harsh life can be, and yet also how magic life can become. It connects with readers at a deep level. But not only does the message of clergy frailty come through, another truth hits home- that these very cracks and faults can potentially be the place where the most beautiful spiritual gold is discovered. It is not in "climbing the ladder of perfection" that we meet God, but in falling from it.
