Chase Falson has lost his faith – and he did it right in front of the congregation at this mega church. Now the elders want him to take some time away: far away. So Chase crosses the Atlantic to visit his uncle, a Franciscan priest, where he encounters the life and teachings of Francis of Assisi and rediscovers his ancient faith. Follow Chase’s spiritual journey in the footsteps of Francis, and then begin one of your own through the pilgrim’s guide included in this audio book.

Really relatable and easy to read story that conveys the myth of Francis into a truth of a man searching to serve Jesus, both Francis and Chase.
Ian is a great writer with a flare for the metaphor that brings humour to the telling of a easy narrative. very enjoyable Christian fiction. looking forward to the next one.

"When I first discovered the grainy picture in my mother’s desk—me as a towheaded two year old sitting in what I remember was a salmon-orange-stained lifeboat—I was overwhelmed by the feeling that the boy in the boat was not waving and laughing at the person snapping the photo as much as he was frantically trying to get the attention of the man I am today. The boy was beckoning me to join him on a voyage through the harrowing straits of memory."

The dramatic autobiography of one of China's dedicated, courageous, and intensely persecuted house church leaders. This is the gripping story of how God took a young, half-starved boy from a poor village in Henan province and placed him on the front line for Jesus, in the face of impossible odds. Instead of focusing on the many miracles or experiences of suffering, however, Yun prefers to focus on the character and beauty of Jesus.

amazing story of persecution full of faith and love. A challenge to the 'spoilt' western Christian as to where there heart is. Brother Yun's story is one of steadfast love. A reminder, a promise, a hope.

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

Islam can't compare to what the Bible has to say about who Jesus is and what God has done out of love for his people. Nabeel is so rational but torn in his investigation and realisation of how big the difference really is between the faiths. I cried when he finally accepted Jesus but also felt his pain at losing his culture and family.
A really easy to listen to and we'll spoken audio.
Highly recommended.
