By the end of Shaun Lambert's wonderful new book, hopefully one of this book's sparks may have kindled a gentle, warming fire in the reader's heart.
A fire burning for a different way of living, a slower, contemplative, connected way of living.
In his book Shaun Lambert looks in particular at St. Mark's Gospel of the New Testament. In exploring and meditating on this Gospel Shaun invites us to take a fresh look at our secular and our spiritual lives. The Book of Sparks invites us to read important texts slowly, to take time, not only in order to go to new depths in reading, but also to grow into new depths in our living.
This book encourages to take time for important things in life. It encourages to allow ourselves to be unavailable in order to be available for others, who need our presence. With this book we may be able to rediscover the joy of living in the present moment through awareness and attentiveness.
Shaun opens new windows to look at aspects of our lives in a new and gentle light. We are invited to look at learning, schools, creativity and behaviour in our society, be it competitive, narcissistic or loving. All these insights and meditations are wrought from the gospel of Mark, making our bible reading relevant for today's life.
This book emits sparks, illuminating important aspects of our lives and helping us to reconnect with our inner self and God.
