Overview

from Finding the Way Again

It’s not too late to discover the lost gospel of Jesus and begin to live by it, to change our direction, to once again become people of the way. We could, with humility, embody compassion and justice. We could so completely trust God that we dare to share what we have with those in need, love those who hate us, bless those who curse us.

What’s been lost can be found again. Do we dare? Can we hear the call clearly and be so moved we must respond? If we sense that something profound and precious has been lost, we can do something about it. It’s like a treasure that’s been lost, long since buried in a field. All we have to do is go and sell all we have and buy the field.

My goal with this intentionally simple, slim volume (based on scholarship, but not bogged down by notes and references) is to attempt to remove that which has obscured, hidden, and even replaced Jesus and his radical revolution, extricating him from the stiflingly narrow religious context that all but silences him, so his message can reverberate around us, resonate within us.

There is hope. This can happen.

If Jesus teaches us anything, it is that which was once dead can live again, that which was lost can be found.

Meet the Author

A native Floridian, award-winning novelist, Michael Lister grew up in North Florida near the Gulf of Mexico and the Apalachicola River where most of his books are set.

In the early 90s, Lister became the youngest chaplain within the Florida Department of Corrections—a unique experience that led to his critically acclaimed mystery series featuring prison chaplain John Jordan: POWER IN THE BLOOD, BLOOD OF THE LAMB, FLESH AND BLOOD, THE BODY AND THE BLOOD, and BLOOD SACRIFICE.

Michael won a Florida Book Award for his literary thriller, DOU- BLE EXPOSURE, a book, according to the Panama City News Herald, that “is lyrical and literary, written in a sparse but evocative prose reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy.” His other thrillers include THUNDER BEACH, BUNRT OFFERINGS, and SEPARATION ANXIETY.

Michael also writes a popular weekly column on art and meaning and life titled Of Font and Film (www.OfFontandFilm.com), which includes reviews of film and fiction. A collection of these has been published titled THE MEANING OF LIFE IN MOVIES.
