When we're young, it's easy to believe in the supernatural, the mysterious, the enchanted. But as we grow older, we learn to be more rational and more confident that reality is merely what we can see. Even as Christians who believe in the resurrection, we live as if miracles and magic have been drained from the world. As Mike Cosper wrestled with his own disillusionment, he found writers, thinkers, and artists like Hannah Arendt, Charles Taylor, James K. A. Smith, and David Foster Wallace whose words and ideas reassured him that he was not alone. And he discovered ancient and modern disciplines that shape a Christian way of life and awaken the possibility of living again in an enchanted world. Exquisitely written with thoughtful practices woven throughout, this book will feed your soul and help you recapture the wonder of your Christian walk.
"Highly interactive with cultural memes, imaginative literature, and the liturgical calendar, the author paves a way for believers to reconnect with God in a consumerist society addicted to smartphones and exhibitionism. There is much wisdom here, and a clear sense of the author also at work to disentangle himself from the ephemeral to draw nearer to God."--Gerald Wisz, Christian Market, August 2017
"Cosper's creative work will help readers struggling with a frenetic pace who want to reconnect with the quieter practices of faith."--Publishers Weekly, August 14, 2017
