Contemporary evangelicals have built a “salvation culture” but not a “gospel culture.” Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh.

“A veritable epic of flyfishing… done in a high-velocity, exuberant style, sprawling in scale, heedless of form… The feeling for and evocation of the imperiled natural world is rhapsodic in its intensity; the writing energetic, literary in a distinctly American way… So amiable is the prevailing tone that the flowing narrative is able to absorb Koranic and Eastern mysticisms, Tao, Sufism, Zen-the religions of oneness and gospel of love-without turning into the kind of maudlin choral chanting that so often disfigures treatments of fusion of self and the world.”
The Novels of Madeleine L’Engle Volume One: The Other Side of the Sun, A Live Coal in the Sea, and A Winter’s Love
*** $3.99 ***
From the National Book Award–winning author of A Wrinkle in Time, three poignant novels exploring the power of love, family, and secrets.
