Paula Huston
--author of Simplifying the Soul and One Ordinary Sunday
"Light When It Comes is both a literary gem and a cup of blessing for all who long to experience God's presence."

Thomas Lynch
--author of The Undertaking and The Sin-Eater
"An age that has fashioned faith into bludgeon and cudgel, and traded community for self-righteous indignation, might better be illumined by Light When It Comes and by the grace of Anderson's vital, studious witness. The ties of belief that bind us, each to the other, needn't be rope enough to hang, cruel lash or rein or tether. Rather, lifeline, safe mooring, the holy, miraculous lowering of our hobbled, heart-wrecked selves to the place of our redeeming."

Lawrence S. Cunningham
--author of The Seven Deadly Sins and Things Seen and Unseen
"Chris Anderson offers us a triune gift wrapped into a whole: beautiful prose, pastoral experience, and an authentic believing eye turned to our world. This volume is a grace to be received with abundant thanks."

Methodist Recorder
"Here is a book which offers us tools, a method and a motive, for engaging with something unfamiliar in order to find ourselves more fully aware of the familiar presence of God."
