On finding joy and spiritual meaning in life's small moments
We all have moments of joy, moments that move us somehow, spiritual moments that we can't quite put a finger on. But then we rush on and soon forget. In this book Chris Anderson encourages us to remember
and share such moments. What he writes will inspire readers who are hurting, doubting, or searching to find wisdom and meaning in their lives.
Drawing on an ancient prayer tradition, the examen
of conscience, Anderson spurs readers to take stock of their own experiences. He shows how the examen
can serve as a simple but powerful way to remember moments of light, of struggle, of joy. And however small or fleeting these moments are, through them God is always calling and meeting us.

"Light When It Comes is both a literary gem and a cup of blessing for all who long to experience God's presence."

"An age that has fashioned faith into bludgeon and cudgel, and traded community for self-righteous indignation, might better be illumined by Light When It Comes and by the grace of Anderson's vital, studious witness. The ties of belief that bind us, each to the other, needn't be rope enough to hang, cruel lash or rein or tether. Rather, lifeline, safe mooring, the holy, miraculous lowering of our hobbled, heart-wrecked selves to the place of our redeeming."

"Chris Anderson offers us a triune gift wrapped into a whole: beautiful prose, pastoral experience, and an authentic believing eye turned to our world. This volume is a grace to be received with abundant thanks."
