Beautiful Quest

Beautiful Quest

$21.77

Paperback

Whether we know it or not, we are on a perilous and beautiful quest. Like all such journeys there are surprises in store. We are told in this book, for example, that we "must follow love," which conjures up images of sentimental songs, flowers and dishonesty. But the love being talked about here turns out to be something far more practical and mysterious.
The opening chapter of Beautiful Quest walks us through 'A Music Collection' and tells of a Russian priest who once said, "All the food of this world is divine love made edible". From there we go on to meet various hazards and joys in chapters with titles such as 'Mind Games' and 'Dark Nights and Wonders'. This latter one being a take on what we can learn from John Wesley's attempt to love those being devoured by England's 'Gin Age'.
So, exactly what is this quest all about? It emerges that it's about home and family, community and neighbourhood, and in particular, about God, which involves sacrifice. Unfortunately, these sacrifices can be wrongheaded and we can get badly hurt and lose hope. Beautiful Quest understands this and leads us to places of healing, clarity and new hope. Having enabled us to find our way again, it dares us to once more walk with God in a world deep with love, light and danger. We re-discover why knowing God is so irresistible.

Valuable, life changing.
5 stars By Jenny Glazebrook, Jun 29 2017
Wow. This book was like digging into a chest, not knowing what I might find within. Each time I drew out my hand a new treasure lay in my palm. And each one was more beautiful, more valuable than the one before. And so I dove deeper, feeling my heart become more entwined with my Saviour each time, seeing more of His character, more of His grace and beauty, and longing to walk the road of life closer with Him. At times I knew I was out of my depth, not fully comprehending the value of what I was reading, but knowing I would come back to it and explore the mystery and wonder of a life completely lived for God. God used this book to lift me to new heights, to soar on wings like eagles so I now feel I have more of His perspective and can run a bit further without becoming so weary of the journey. I thank God for this book, for this author's willingness to be vulnerable and share his heart and in so doing, share the beautiful quest of life genuinely lived with and for Jesus Christ.

Reading for the Journey
5 stars By Joshua Parris, Sep 08 2015
Beautiful Quest is an epic journey into places known and unknown. Pete takes us from the deep recesses of ourselves, out beyond ourselves to worlds unknown. I have enjoyed reading Pete's book and look forward to reading more of it in the days to come. I highly recommend it!
