About the Book

In an effort to keep Jesus' message of inclusive love, unconditional forgiveness, and social justice from dissolving into the divisiveness and combativeness of today's Christianity, Mike Luedde offers fresh parables for modern spiritual seekers.

You'll find your heart warmed and your mind spellbound as you meet the mysterious, Jesus-like Island Mystic and absorb his parables and spiritual reflections as told to a cynical, marooned sailor. The Island Mystic guides you to a more loving and contemplative life and compels you to develop a better and deeper understanding of God, Jesus, religion, the church, and prayer.

For anyone who is disillusioned by the spiritual wasteland of today's churches, this provocative guide frees you to explore your faith in new and challenging ways and delivers hope, encouragement, and support on your journey toward more genuine intimacy with God.
