Light When It Comes: Trusting Joy, Facing Darkness, and Seeing God in Everything

Learn to find joy and spiritual meaning in life’s small places

Eerdmans Summary

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 Light When It Comes Chris Anderson encourages us to remember and share such moments. What he writes will inspire listeners 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 listeners 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.

Praise for Light When It Comes

Paula Huston
— author of Simplifying the Soul and One Ordinary Sunday
Light When It Comes is both a literary gem and a cup of blessing for all who long to experience God’s presence.”

Thomas Lynch
— author of The Undertaking and The Sin-Eater
“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.”

Lawrence S. Cunningham
— author of The Seven Deadly Sins and Things Seen and Unseen
“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.”
