Publisher's Summary

On finding joy and spiritual meaning in life's small moments. We all have moments of joy, moments that move us somehow, spiritual moments that we can't quite put a finger on. But then we rush on and soon forget. In this book Chris Anderson encourages us to remember and share such moments. What he writes will inspire listeners who are hurting, doubting, or searching to find wisdom and meaning in their lives. Drawing on an ancient prayer tradition, the examen of conscience, Anderson spurs listeners to take stock of their own experiences. He shows how the examen can serve as a simple but powerful way to remember moments of light, of struggle, of joy. And however small or fleeting these moments are, through them God is always calling and meeting us.

Trevor Thompson did a nice job of capturing the emotion of the different stories. Wonderful to listen to. I have long thought Eerdmans should do audiobooks. I am so excited!

Surprised by audio!

Would you consider the audio edition of Light When It Comes to be better than the print version?

I read the book and then purchased the audio. My family and I listened on a long holiday drive. The audio experience was different than reading the book. I am not sure which is better. They are both great.

What other book might you compare Light When It Comes to and why?

The Divine Dance by Richard Rohr. Similar themes.
