Publisher's Summary

On finding joy and spiritual meaning in life's small moments. We all have moments of joy, moments that move us somehow, spiritual moments that we can't quite put a finger on. But then we rush on and soon forget. In this book Chris Anderson encourages us to remember and share such moments. What he writes will inspire listeners who are hurting, doubting, or searching to find wisdom and meaning in their lives. Drawing on an ancient prayer tradition, the examen of conscience, Anderson spurs listeners to take stock of their own experiences. He shows how the examen can serve as a simple but powerful way to remember moments of light, of struggle, of joy. And however small or fleeting these moments are, through them God is always calling and meeting us.

    "Eerdmans on Audio!!"
    If you could sum up Light When It Comes in three words, what would they be?

    Finding God in surprising places.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author's candour and vulnerability.


    Which character – as performed by Trevor Thompson – was your favorite?

    The book did not have "characters." The story is told in the first person from the perspective of the author.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. In the car.


    Any additional comments?

    Trevor Thompson did a nice job of capturing the emotion of the different stories. Wonderful to listen to. I have long thought Eerdmans should do audiobooks. I am so excited!

    "Surprised by audio!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Light When It Comes to be better than the print version?

    I read the book and then purchased the audio. My family and I listened on a long holiday drive. The audio experience was different than reading the book. I am not sure which is better. They are both great.


    What other book might you compare Light When It Comes to and why?

    The Divine Dance by Richard Rohr. Similar themes.


    What about Trevor Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Amazing voice. The pace was perfect.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Eerdmans does more books on audio!

    Story
    "God is present always"

    I found this book very interesting and I totally agree with Chris Anderson that God is present in ALL the moments of our lives. The dark and the light the smallest detail to the large chooses. Chris uses his own life experiences to demonstrate this. These reconciliations is where I found myself struggling at times and cheering at others. Sometimes our life experiences mean so much more to us then to recreate for someone else. That all said I think this is a concept that everyone should look for. Trevor Thompson does the narrative for this book and at times his voice was to monotone for me over all it was great.
