A Thirty-Day Retreat is a thirty day cycle of scripture reflections inspired by questions the author has addressed as a priest, a pastor, a university teacher, and a scripture scholar: How can I live out my faith in both the world and in the workplace? How can I remain faithful to family, work, school, and church? What does it mean to have a vocation? What does the Lord expect of me in the here and now? Will I make it to heaven? This book is written for Christians of all denominations who are seeking an intelligent, scripture-based personal retreat that provokes their spiritual imagination without burdening them with theological jargon. This book can be used as a resource for both personal devotion and small group discussions. Readers will turn to it time and time again for comfort, inspiration, insight, and strength.
