Winner of a 2013 Leadership Journal Book Award ("Best of the Best" in "The Leader's Inner Life" category)Why bother with the Christian faith?In the post-Christian world, doubt and skepticism come naturally to us. Many have given up on faith of any kind, finding it shallow and unsatisfying. But still we yearn for more. We hope for our children's futures. We long for lives that are meaningful, even eternal.Grappling with his own questions, Jim Belcher set out on a quest to see how the Christian faith faces the challenges of the modern world and answers the cries of the human soul. Seeking renewal after a draining season of life, he and his family spent a year traveling through Europe, exploring the faith that has shaped civilizations throughout the centuries. They rediscovered key figures, places and events in the history of Christianity, from C. S. Lewis's life at Oxford to Dietrich Bonhoeffer's death in a concentration camp. Through the experiences of William Wilberforce, Vincent Van Gogh, Corrie ten Boom and others, Belcher saw glimpses of insight, beauty and courage that transcended human limitations. He found himself surprised by joy and compelled by faith.Whether you are giving up on Christianity or encountering it for the first time, you are invited to come along on this pilgrimage. Even if you are unsure of the destination, the journey itself may take you far deeper than you could ever imagine.FROM THE AUTHORThe story of In Search of Deep Faith by Jim BelcherAfter almost 20 years pastoring two congregations, raising four children and finishing my first book, I was tired and worn down--out of gas. I needed to make a change, to find a way to regain my passion for my calling. While I was exhausted, my wife and I were also worried about our four children and whether they were developing a strong enough faith to last a lifetime. Were they being more influenced by the culture around them--the media, materialism and friends--than by the story of Christianity and its reality in their lives? Then we hit on an idea. What if we traveled on a pilgrimage for a year to England and Europe, and studied and experienced the biographies and places of some of the great heroes of the faith--people like C.S Lewis, Sheldon Vanauken, William Wilberforce, Corrie ten Boom, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Maria Von Trapp. Maybe this could get my passion back for my calling and at the same time help my children develop a deeper faith--a faith that shaped their imaginations and identities and futures. So we left the comforts of Orange County, Ca and moved to Oxford, England. We didn't have any definite plans but upon arriving we discovered that a pilgrimage has three components: to rediscover our roots, to understand that life is a journey and to know our ultimate destination. These three ideas became our inspiration, shaping the themes we pursued, revealing the heroes we studied, and steering us across time and place. And as the pilgrimage unfolded, day by day, month by month, what we learned and experienced over the year would startle us and surprise us and change us forever. In Search of Deep Faith is the record of this pilgrimage, an unfolding drama marked by suspense and intrigue. I hope you will take the journey with us and go deeper into the faith than you could ever imagine.… (mer)

An Unusual Book Full of Surprises - This is a book describing Belcher's travel and learning experiences taking place in the native locations of some of his spiritual heroes. I found some of his choices of heroes to be surprising. Some of them are far less known than others, at least in Christian circles. His writing about Cranmer and Bonhoeffer were as captivating as any spy novel could be and I learned a number of pieces of history that are not widespread. His analysis of the spirituality of each of his subjects was superb. He would be writing along, and then stop the story to describe his kids reactions of being there and leave you hanging about the drama. He would then return to pick up right where he left off. This is a fast read and not a challenging book to read. It is a mixture of a collection of terrific biographies and traveling challenges of a family with an RV full of kids. It will be enjoyed by all, and it will shed accurate historical background to Christians that all of us should know. ( )
