Preston Yancey arrived at Baylor University in the autumn of 2008 with his life figured out, then slowly each piece of his secure world fell apart: his church, his life of study, his politics, his girlfriend, his best friend, and his God.
It was the loss of God in the midst of all the godly things that would change Preston forever. One day he heard God say, "Its going to be about trust with you," and then God was silentand God still hasnt spoken. At least, not in the ways Preston used to think were the only ways God spoke. Journey with Preston as he navigates becoming a patchwork of Anglican spirituality and Baptist sensibility, of reckoning with a God who is bigger than the one Preston thought he was worshiping: the God of a common faith, who makes tables in the wilderness, who is found in cathedrals and in forests and in the Eucharist, who speaks in fire and in wind, who is so big, that everything must be Gods.
Preston Yancey is a lifelong Texan raised Southern Baptist who fell in love with reading saints, crossing himself, and high church spirituality. He now makes his home within the Anglican tradition. He is a writer, painter, baker, and speaker. An alumnus of Baylor University, Preston completed a masters in theology from St. Andrews University in Scotland before returning to the States. He currently lives in Waco, Texas.
Well-written, engaging, and authentic...
Tables in the Wilderness:A Memoir of God Found, Lost, and Found Again is a record of Preston Yanceys personal journey through a crisis in faith while he is an undergraduate student at Baylor University in Texas. He questions his Southern Baptist upbringing while at the same time trying to regain his intimate relationship with God; he can no longer hear Gods voice like he could when he was younger. Preston Yancey has written the memoir in a stream of consciousness style. This enables readers to experience firsthand the moments of worry, doubt, indecision, and frustration Preston goes through as he tries to figure out which denomination is the right one for him and why God is silent. Prestons journey leads him to gaining a better understanding of Christian faith and into a richer and deeper relationship with God. This memoir will appeal to college students who believe in God, but sometimes feel abandoned by Him. They will find the memoir a guiding light as they seek to grow in their Christian faith. Because literature is an integral part of Prestons journey, he includes a Suggested Reading List of influential books. The included Reading Guide is useful for individual and group study.
