Publishers Description
Using stories as diverse as that of the death of a polar bear at the London Zoo, aboriginal refugees of Darwin, Australia, and a munitions expert who becomes a professional safecracker, Anthony Gittins charts unexplored spiritual landscapes of the 21st century. The spiritual approach that identifies Gittins is a practical, down-to-earth way of connecting with God in the place you are -- and an avenue sturdy enough to endure for the long haul.

For those who want to uncover a personal spirituality that adapts to the context of a particular culture and to the demands for justice, this book charts a new and unexplored path. In discussing the factors that will mark a spirituality for the future, Gittins blends a unique viewpoint of personal, pastoral, and global perspectives, elucidating for readers the importance of mission and evangelization in any authentic journey of the soul.

A carefully woven tapestry of sociological and anthropological allegories and practical advice, Reading the Clouds is a spiritual travelogue for a changing world. Readers will come away with a vision of new possibilities and a renewed appetite for celebrating the living memory and mission of Jesus Christ.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Navigating life's journey  May 31, 2000
Anthony Gittins draws from a wealth of cultural experiences, not all his own, to produce a refreshing, challenging view of human community. We in the Western world need to grasp the values Gittins expresses, to engage in humble, personal ways the many-splendored cultural expressions of dignity, value, growth, and community manifested in the peoples of the world around us. Many have called mankind through the ages to forego petty differences of style and expression, and focus on the common life values; Gittins casts this call in relevant issues of our day. In doing so, he points the way to what appears to be new territory, yet which evokes the memory of Home.
 
splendid in every way  Oct 5, 1999
This is a book of far-reaching horizons, both in terms of spirituality and geography. From West Africa to the Pacific Islands, the author draws on the lush imagery of people and places to illustrate challenges that can be applied to anyone, at home or abroad. A refreshing and contemporary look at mission and ministry today. But beware! This book could be risky and unsettling. Once you crack the cover there will be no turning back. It will require you to remember the values, hopes and promises of a younger, perhaps truer, self.[From the back cover]
