By Brian D McLaren

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is no bumping or fraying on the cover boards. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "I am midway in my journey through life and I seem to have lost my way. I find myself in a dark place walking, not sure if dawn will ever come. As on a winter night, when black ice forms on every sidewalk and stairway, I can find no firm footing anywhere, and every moment when I am not splayed out on the ice, I am afraid that I am about to slip. A Christian, not to mention a Christian pastor, should not hate. Nor should he feel despair. But here I am, in my early forties, and I find myself filled with hatred as a closed basement closet is filled with darkness, and my limbs are heavy with despair. Every step is hard, To lift my hand to my face is laborious. Even standing makes me feel how strong gravity is. I hate this...." - Chapter One from The Last Word and the Word After That: A Tale of Faith, Doubt, and a New Kind of Christianity

'You think I am deaf?' 'Of course,' she said. 'I hear yours.' It was hard to keep on being civil. She was tired and he had been asking questions such a long time, days and days of incredibly naive questions. Now he was explaining that she misunderstood; he did not mean real voices. Fantastic. He was speaking, he said, of voices that were not real and yet they were voices he expected her to hear. He was something of a pest, this man, but she could think of no decent way to get rid of him. You could tell he meant well and so you tried to play the game with him, as if with a fanciful child...." - Chapter One from The Snake Pit
