About the Book

Christianity is not a good old-time religion--safe and nostalgic. Instead, it is the most radical concept of our world that, if we choose to accept it, may cause us to be torn apart and painfully reshaped. It's authentic, relevant, and capable of standing up to every part of modern civilization.

In a collection of thoughtful musings about the Word of God, lifelong Christian Eric Ribbens explores key lessons in the Bible while sharing creative retellings of each story that encourage others to reason together with God, question the meaning behind the stories, and then embrace opportunities for learning. Each musing begins with a quote extracted from a Bible verse relevant to the speaker, and is followed by questions for discussion and contemplation that invite each of us to reflect on God's presence in our lives.

Eddies of His Breath is a collection of biblical reflections that builds on stories from the Bible and then encourages heartfelt discussion and contemplation about God's influence and His lessons that still apply in today's world.
