Learning to Speak God from Scratch - Jonathan Merritt
Published by Convergent Books in 2018
This is the book I wish I had written!
Not only does it cover some of the territory I've described in 'Finding Your Voice' and 'Hidden in Plain Sight', but it's warm and witty into the bargain.
To give you a sense of the book's contents, Chapters 1 & 2 are entitled 'Sacred Words in Crisis' and 'Why Speaking God Matters'. Chapter 5 is 'How (Not) to Speak God'...
See what I mean?
If I've not yet convinced you of how helpful this book is - it opens with the following quote from David Brooks, writing in 2015 in the New York Times: 'Many adults hunger for meaning and goodness, but lack a spiritual vocabulary to think things through.’
