The borderlands of change can be disorienting. We can feel adrift. We may enter them by intention, aspiring to growth, or be thrust into them by illness, relationship breakdown, financial crisis or bereavement. Whatever, they will always form challenging territory. Scripture, though, offers rich resources for navigating such landscapes. The Great Fifty Days from Easter to Pentecost form a unique map for the adventure of spiritual growth.

Poetic and passionate in language, frank and authentic about the challenge of change, it aims to inspire and stir appetite for spiritual formation. Combining insights from literature, psychology and art, it offers scriptural keys that can help and enrich any borderland season of life. Be equipped for a transforming journey into all the fullness of life that Jesus promises.
