Publisher's Description

Using stories as diverse as that of the death of a polar bear at the London Zoo, aboriginal refugees of Darwin, Australia, and a munitions expert who becomes a professional safecracker, Anthony Gittins charts unexplored spiritual landscapes of the 21st century. The spiritual approach that identifies Gittins is a practical, down-to-earth way of connecting with God in the place you are -- and an avenue sturdy enough to endure for the long haul.

For those who want to uncover a personal spirituality that adapts to the context of a particular culture and to the demands for justice, this book charts a new and unexplored path. In discussing the factors that will mark a spirituality for the future, Gittins blends a unique viewpoint of personal, pastoral, and global perspectives, elucidating for readers the importance of mission and evangelization in any authentic journey of the soul.

A carefully woven tapestry of sociological and anthropological allegories and practical advice, Reading the Clouds is a spiritual travelogue for a changing world. Readers will come away with a vision of new possibilities and a renewed appetite for celebrating the living memory and mission of Jesus Christ.
