In the inquisitive spirit of Montaigne, and with the confessional scrutiny of St. Augustine,"MILE HIGH REDEMPTION" describes in personal language the path to "conversion"-from religion to responsibility and integrity. Clark's third book is a conscientious exploration of our most cherished commitments, one which relentlessly probes the legitimacy of the very Evangelical forces which seek to define him. We are not only drawn in, we "see" Clark's changes as he grapples with the pressures and aspirations of Christian salvation.

Professor Phillip Fandozzi, 23 yr director of Liberal Studies, University of MT.

*** We are privy to a sustained youthful reflection on the nature of miracles, vice, friendship, idolatry, eternity, homosexuality, reverence, God, and even human salvation. ***

Reared in an Evangelical community, Clark draws upon his unique experience---which includes an early career as a construction journeyman and business owner, followed by ten years on the bench in the judicial system, and ultimately, with PhD in hand, the fundamental commitment to the philosophical life as a philosophy professor and author currently at the University of Montana.

The story you will read here is true. If you have not lived a similar story, then this book, while not solely for you, is nonetheless especially for you. It is the saga of one who yearned to give himself over to a Greater Power, to One who could transform the world, and the lives of those in it. It is the tale of a surrender which carries an innate, but unmarked, and ultimately terrifying, price. No sooner was it in place than the questions---nagging unwanted intrusions---began their swell toward an enormous crescendo. To ignore them was very soon not a living option. I needed to understand what was worthy of my allegiance---what it was I could proudly deliver my life to---and what I dared not. Dedicating my LIFE! There's nothing more to give.

But liberation moves in its own time; and enlightenment, I would find, is often not a pretty thing to look at; not a pretty thing at all.
And so in the quest to salvage and craft the quality of our lives there can be no ulterior agenda. Integrity is our most prized victory. Here, commitment to truth is everything. It is really this stance I think, the early commitment to deep guidance---to discover, honor, and participate in, a greatness unshackled to dissemblance---from which this story begins; and it is this stance, I do hope, from which it continues.
