    A Rich and Intense Journey

    Posted by Heidi Rashidi on May 17th 2022

    Couldn't put it down. Alternately hilarious and harrowing, John shares his personal journey of life and faith. A gold thread of inner knowing shines through the whole escalating disaster. It's a heart knowing about who and how God must be that serves as a bullshit detector for all the ridiculous, unworkable things people project about God. As his journey progresses, his head begins to line up more with his heart, and after much rich experience and real suffering, his life begins to fit in with what his head and heart now agree. A remarkable book.

    Wonderful writing the author’s candidness is refreshing, funny and compelling. This work is so rich with the author’s voice. I couldn’t put it down. I wanted to read more! I am happy to say that I am glad that I too identify as a spider!
