What did you love best about The Four-Gospel Journey as a Guide for the Spiritual Life?
This is a highly informed and sensitive perception of the Gospel presented in a very intimate way. Although a 'different' take, it is firmly grounded in a spiritual practice that is relevant to 'how' we read as well as 'what' we read.It is very much a contemporary take on timeless reality.
What other book might you compare The Four-Gospel Journey as a Guide for the Spiritual Life to and why?
'Surprised by Joy' by C.S Lewis, has a similar sense of the personal revelations experienced by an individual being shared.
What about Dr. Alexander J. Shaia PhD’s performance did you like?
Alexander, is a natural teacher. He encourages the listener to think freshly rather than accept instruction. There is a poetic flavor to his expression of ideas that is both hooked into past thought, insight into history and universal grace .
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I consider this an excellent introduction to thinking and feeling the Gospel .
Any additional comments?
It blows away simplistic readings and helps reveal a deeply cultural context without becoming only 'history.' I think the writers own family history has allowed him to be able to act like a translator. There is an emotional edge that touches the heart. There is a tenderness and vulnerability that embraces the "I am with you."

A most beautiful, gentle and life changing look at the gospels from an author who has a heart for truth and a love for his fellow travellers on the long, confusing and often chaotic journey of human life. Something beautiful has happened in my life since I first stumbled across Alexander Shaia's work just a few short weeks ago. Highly recommended for thirsty souls and weary souls.
