Product Description

One translation of Dante's Divine Comedy opens with the words, "Midway along the journey of our life, I woke to find myself in a dark wood, for I had wandered off from the straight path." Perhaps you identify with this confession. You might be pressing on bravely in the search for paradise, moving from better job to new town to bigger house, but the truth is that you are lost.

In Searching for Home, Barnes draws on Dante's pilgrimage as a parallel to your search for paradise. Never sidestepping the difficult truth of your situation, Barnes begins with the disconcerting news that paradise is lost and you can't go home again. Your great comfort and hope, however, is that you're never lost to God; in fact, he travels with you in your journey. Barnes, seasoned by more than twenty years as a pastor, offers advice about how you can move from being a transient nomad "too frightened to be grateful" to being a pilgrim at home with God. After experiencing Searching for Home, you too may be able to echo Dante's declaration at the close of Divine Comedy: "I felt my will and my desire impelled by the Love that moves the sun and the other stars."

Voted the 2004 Best Book on Spirituality by Christianity Today.

Publisher's Description

Deep down it's easy to believe that the better job, the nicer house, or the more dynamic church will finally make us feel "at home." In Searching for Home, M. Craig Barnes challenges this belief. He reminds us that paradise is lost and we can't go home again. Our great comfort and hope, however, is that we are never lost to God.

Seasoned by more than twenty years as a pastor, Barnes discusses the importance of confession, worship, and grace in our search for home. He offers advice about how we can move from being transient nomads "too frightened to be grateful" to pilgrims who are at home with God, guided by our pleasure in him.

This book was written for both Christians and seekers who are still looking for a sense of belonging or "home." It will be a useful tool for pastors, adult Sunday school groups, and counselors of all kinds who are advising pilgrims along the way.
