Faith Odyssey: A Journey Through Life
William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2003 - 226 páginas
To boldly go where no Christian book has gone before . . . "Faith Odyssey" is a Bible study unlike any other ever written. Richard Burridge invites readers to explore the journey of faith through fifty short devotional readings that combine Scripture with stories from science fiction and popular culture.
For each day, passages from the Bible are placed alongside stories drawn from literature, television, and film -- from Homer's "Odyssey" to Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress," from "Star Trek" to "Star Wars," from "Dune" to "The Matrix," from the charms of Narnia to the spells of Harry Potter.
Whereas Burridge's "Faith Odyssey" in an earlier edition was tied to one season of the church year ( a journey through Lent ), it now applies more broadly to anytime throughout the year ( a journey through life ). Imaginative yet deep, Burridge's reflections trace with flair and relevance the Christian pilgrimage against the background of today's world.
