Practical. Easy to read. Insightful. Story-filled. Honest. Vulnerable.
Using stories from the life of St. Patrick, Alcoholics Anonymous, his own life, and ultimately Jesus, Jamie Arpin-Ricci is able to get the heart of the spiritual journey and makes the story of radical faith accessible to all.
Writing about spirituality is never easy, as it is always a nuanced conversation that relies heavily on metaphor. But Jamie cuts right to the heart of a discipleship that will lead us to experience freedom, honesty, radical hospitality, genuine community, and transformation.
I’ve only had the book for one week, and I’ve found myself not only referencing it in multiple conversations, but also recommending it everywhere I go. Why? I think that when we’re able to be vulnerable, and let go of our pretense and fears, then we’re on the path of opening ourselves up to loving God and loving our neighbours as ourselves.
Even now, I find myself tongue tied when speaking about the book, because all I want to say is “Do yourself a favour and read this book!”
