Like a wheel without a hub, Western Christianity spins blindly without a sense of its center. Contemporary Christians substitute the written Bible for the Living Word, doctrine for relationships, petty morality for the Spirit's guidance, and obsession with the Apocalypse for justice and the peaceful unity of humanity.
Prepare to be enriched by the depth of author Mike Luedde's insights into the Christian religion and how it needs to change for the twenty-first century. Breakfast with the Island Mystic: Parables for a New Christianity will challenge you to explore the basic concepts of your faith in new and exciting ways. You will find your heart warmed and your mind spellbound as you meet the Island Mystic and absorb his parables and spiritual reflections. The mysterious Jesus-like figure tells each story to a cynical sailor who is marooned on the Mystic's island, then invites him and the reader to think deeply about the parable's meaning. The final chapter explores some of contemporary Christianity's current difficulties with such concepts as God, Jesus, religion, the church, and prayer.
Breakfast with the Island Mystic brings hope, encouragement, and support to those who hunger for intimacy with God but are disillusioned by the spiritual wasteland of today's churches.
