Faith is the greatest resource one can have when facing adversity. Unfortunately, faith is often confused with belief in a specific doctrines whose effect is to separate people. Parson's Porch Books is proud to introduce Charles "Carlos" Gourgey, who has written a beautiful and timely book that asks the questions, "What is faith?" and "How do we find it?" and in Judeochristianity he reminds us that understanding Jesus within the context of Hebrew prophecy can lead us to a more profound meaning of faith, a faith based on love rather tan fear, which can become for us "a very present help in trouble."

Whether you are a practicing Jew, a practicing Christian (as I am) or one who practices nothing at all, your inner spiritual life will be greatly enhanced by this book. And you may find yourself on a path to faith. Gourgey shows you that path and teaches you how to overcome its obstacles. His extensive experience as a music therapist in a hospice provides many examples of individuals wrestling with faith issues as they approach the end of their lives – examples that provide provocative insights for the reader. The chapter on grief was particularly helpful to me recently when a friend committed suicide. Gourgey’s thoughtful reflections gave me insight into both the demons of depression and the realization that beyond grief is abiding, sustaining love. I highly recommend this book.
