Chris Heuertz believes that any true path to spiritual sight ought to be simple. While he's not a contemplative and hardly a mystic, Chris has found, in the Bible and in his work with impoverished people, evidence of a simple spirituality. This way of humility, community, simplicity, submission and brokenness will help you see - no matter how dark things get.
- Back cover
"For those of us in the affluent West, spirituality has become muddled by materialism and complicated by our frenetic pace of life. Chris Heuertz helps to unwind the suffocating insulation that cocoons us and stunts our spiritual growth. From his amazing array of experiences among the poor, Chris has been educated in the seminary of the slums. In this deep but accessible work, he draws us alongside the prostitutes, the dying, the disabled and the beggars to help us learn what he has learned--that sitting so close to the heart of God, the poor have the proximity and perspective to teach us the art of simple spirituality."
Christopher L. Heuertz is the international director of Word Made Flesh, an organization that exists to serve Jesus among the poorest of the world's poor. Teaching, writing, speaking and pastoring, Christopher's responsibilities have taken him to nearly seventy countries. He is the author of Simple Spirituality: Learning to See God in a Broken World and Friendship at the Margins: Discovering Mutuality in Service and Mission with Christine Pohl.
Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution, Jesus for President and most recently Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers, and with John Perkins Follow Me to Freedom: Leading as an Ordinary Radical is a prominent activist and sought after speaker. He is one of the founding members of The Simple Way, a community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world. Shane serves on the board of directors for the Christian Community Development Association, and in his down-time is quite a dynamic circus performer.
