Item Description...
James Autry, author of Looking Around for God, thinks that the true message of the old spiritual is not just that God has an eye on the sparrow-it's that God is demonstrating that if these details are worth God's attention they are certainly worth ours. It may be that we will more readily find God in the details of this world-and of our own lives- than anywhere else. Looking Around for God, Autry's tenth book, is in many ways his most personal, as he considers his unique life of faith and belief in a God often clouded by church convention. In assembling these personal essays, stories and poems, Autry strives to share how God has been revealed in many different circumstances of his life, while at the same time offering a few ideas for how the Christian church might better serve in making God's love and presence manifest in the world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"Take Up and Read"  Mar 12, 2008
When Bill Moyers writes something, I always read it. On the back of this book he says, "Yes, it's true: I did urge Jim Autry to write this book. For lesser sins the good Lord may yet forgive me; this one could be unpardonable." That was enough for me so I bought this book and read it. Moyers went on to say, "I am now a co-conspirator in the promotion of a heresy that could prove contagious if this book is widely read and Christians snagged in the cul-de-sac of fundamentalism discover that faith is a continuing and exhilerating course in adult education....But I accept the hazard of putting in peril my prospects for paradise. We have need of the Gospel of St. James, and someone had to insist that he put down on paper what privately he had been sharing for so long with a company of old friends and fellow sinners whose eccentric pieties and personal traits and travails have few equals since John Bunyan dined alone at some 17th century English crossroads beginning his pilgrim's progress....I have marveled at the faith of a man who had said he had little."

I "took up and read" the book on the word of Bill Moyers. What a read! Autry's essays are delightful and insightful. This is true because his essays indicate that religious leaders should always share, caringly and sparingly and honestly, their own sacred journeys. This book will challenge you and maybe even cause you to reconsider your own journey. Yes, the pathway to light and truth runs through the heresies that must be brought to light for what they are. He does no less with his gentle touch. Although it isn't a theological heresy, he writes an essay that should be read by all those who have questions about the invasion of Iraq and any other "pre-emptive war;" he calls it "Who Would Jesus Kill?" Here is a book that blends prose and poetry in such a fashion of generosity and humility that he even dares to conclude with "Just asking." Read it. It is a delightful book.
Having a struggle with your own spiritual life?  Jun 26, 2007
This is a brilliant little book containing honest observations and stories that left me thinking, discussing, and referring chapters to everyone around me. Autry's journey to and through faith is unique yet easily recognizable....something identifiable to those of us who struggle with our own theologies. For those of my friends who tend to find solace in an orderly religious life, this is not the book I'd offer. It is

But, to my larger group of friends and family, those who tend to circle around, zig-zag, frequently fall back from institutional models of church community while yearning for the Lord's ongoing presence, this book promises and delivers. It's a gem, filled to the brim with evidences of God's grace.
