Publisher's Description

"When I first discovered the grainy picture in my mother's desk-me as a towheaded two year old sitting in what I remember was a salmon-orange-stained lifeboat-I was overwhelmed by the feeling that the boy in the boat was not waving and laughing at the person snapping the photo as much as he was frantically trying to get the attention of the man I am today. The boy was beckoning me to join him on a voyage through the harrowing straits of memory. He was gambling that if we survived the passage, we might discover an ocean where the past would become the wind at our back rather than a driving gale to the nose of our boat. This [audio] book is the record of that voyage."

Author Bio

Ian Morgan Cron served for ten years as the Founding and Senior Pastor of Trinity Church in Greenwich, Conn., a non-denominational community committed to social justice as well as to communicating the Christian story through the arts. 

To introduce others to St. Francis, whom Cron has billed the “consummate postmodern saint,” he authored Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim’s Tale (September 2007, NavPress). Part historical narrative, part fiction, Cron’s literary debut has received praise from a host of both Catholic and Protestant thinkers including The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church Frank Griswold, Phyllis Tickle, Marcus J Borg, Brian McLaren, artist Makoto Fujimura, Fr Richard Rohr, Tony Campolo and Brennan Manning. Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim’s Tale is now being published in several languages. 

An accomplished songwriter, he has two CDs of original work, “The Land of my Father’s,” produced by Grammy Award-nominated producer Rob Mathes and “Sacred Hunger,” produced by three time Grammy Award-winning producer Phil Naish. Ian continues to be active as a songwriter. 

Cron speaks extensively to audiences across the nation. He is presently speaking on the theme Bread, Song and Story, an evening of readings from his upcoming spiritual memoir (Thomas Nelson Publishers), integrated with live original music, and the celebration of a contemporary sung Eucharist that is deeply moving. 

Ian is also a doctoral student at Fordham University (The Jesuit University in New York) where he is focusing his studies on Catholic contemplative spirituality and the work of Thomas Merton. In his spare time Ian enjoys yoga, hiking, traveling, and kayaking. He resides in Franklin, Tennessee and Dorset, Vermont with his wife and three children, and his Portuguese Water Dog, Hobbes.

Editorial Reviews

"Ian Cron writes with astonishing energy and freshness; his metaphors stick fast in the imagination. This is neither a simple memoir of hurt endured, nor a tidy story of reconciliation and resolution. It is-rather like Augustine's Confessions-a testimony to the unfinished business of grace." 
-Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

"Ian Cron has the gift of making his human journey a parable for all of our journeys. Read this profound book and be well fed, and freed." 
-Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., author of Everything Belongs

"Ian Morgan Cron's story is a compelling one… Each turn of the page will draw you closer to God." 
-Craig Groeschel, author of The Christian Atheist

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

    The title of the book is very captivating. So, I ordered a paper-back copy of this wonderful book of and I am amazed by how beautiful and effortlessly funny the author delivered his story from the eyes of a young boy until his adult years.

    The author's rendition of his life with an alcoholic father and the discoveries he had about him and his very own spirituality is very poignant. I was deeply moved by the drama of his life that I felt his sadness when he related his yearning for his father's affection and approval. I felt his confusion about the emotional detachment he got from his own father and for a young boy. That was a breaking point in his growing years. I cried with him in all his miseries and emotional turmoil only to know that in the end, he never knew how his father felt about him. I was moved by how his relationship with Christ went to oblivion because of his own fears and hurts. And I am elated to know that in the end, his life came in full circle - filling the huge gap in his heart with the love of Christ.

    Ian has captured my heart with his honest and vulnerable emotions coping with an alcoholic father and fighting his own destructive self. I like how he puts his feelings in every word written on this book to share to his readers. I definitely recommend this to everyone. It is a great enlightenment to one's inner spirituality and beliefs.
