The crime of living cautiously : hearing God's call to adventure by Luci Shaw( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unexpectedly, the moment of opportunity comes to us--the prospect of entering a reality larger than we'd guess. A spacious option opens up before us, an urgent demand that seems to call for special enterprise, life-threatening perils or summons to action. Suddenly we realize that such a chance might never come again. What do you do when faced with such a moment? Do you sometimes get frozen into a state of inaction? Do you wonder if you are wasting the talents God has given you? Or if you enjoy adventure, do you struggle over whether a risk is just a reckless attempt to feed your own needs or a true calling from God?
Accompanied by angels : poems of the Incarnation by Luci Shaw( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the time she was a child in Toronto, celebrated poet Luci Shaw has sent Advent greetings to her friends and family with a carefully crafted original poem. What began as a simple childhood exercise has now become a beloved annual tradition. Though a number of these poems have appeared elsewhere, Accompanied by Angels gathers all of them for the first time into a collection for all readers for any season of the year. Beginning with the joy, terror, and wonder of the annunciation, Shaw leads the reader on a poetic journey through the birth, life, and death of Jesus the Christ, culminating in the joyous and unexpected wonder of his resurrection. Her subjects run from the mundane to the sublime, from birds in flight and waiting old men to fiery angels and storm-ravaged ridges."--Publisher's website

Lewis, and others-poet and writerLuci Shaw proves that symbolism and metaphor provide ways for humans toexperience God in new and powerful ways.
