Quaker minister and spiritual adventurer, Peggy Senger Morrison writes about finding God in unexpected places. The book starts by proposing 12 spiritual disciplines for the 21st century. These include: adventure, courage, surrender, compassion and failure. The idea is to develop and hold an unmediated experience of God and then courageously take that connection to the physical and metaphorical edges of the world. Because life is short and mastery is hard, this can only be accomplished by accepting the fact that we are all permanent student drivers. Applying a practical and optimistic theology, and coddling no lies, Peggy uses her own experiences in the United States and Central Africa to make plain a new and useful Christianity.
