Wisdom Hunter by Randall Arthur

image003Pastor Jason Faircloth was a pastor who had it all – the ginormous church, perfect house, and all the answers, but his family was a mess – his life was out of control and he didn’t even know it.

When life fell apart on him, he was forced into a season of searching and Randall Arthur does a fabulous job of walking us through an honest deconstruction and reconstruction of one’s faith, call to ministry and the faithfulness of God through it all.

I LOVED this book.  This book was first published in 1991.  The author was apparently ostracized by his denomination when they found out about it.  I can’t figure out why.  It is a completely honest look at the ‘dark night of the soul’ that so many of us walk through – regardless of what started our journey.

When I picked up this book, I was reading two other books, but I put them both aside and read this one in one weekend.  This book is terrific – not just for entertainment, but for its look at real life and real faith.

Thank you to Arthur for his honest writing.  I strongly suggest you take the time to read this book.

You can buy it from Random House or Amazon.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

    I loved this book too. Made me think about religion, are some of the things I believe just part of our American Christian culture? What is from my heart and what is ritual?
