Summary:

“When I first discovered the grainy picture in my mother’s desk—me as a towheaded two year old sitting in what I remember was a salmon-orange-stained lifeboat—I was overwhelmed by the feeling that the boy in the boat was not waving and laughing at the person snapping the photo as much as he was frantically trying to get the attention of the man I am today. The boy was beckoning me to join him on a voyage through the harrowing straits of memory. He was gambling that if we survived the passage, we might discover an ocean where the past would become the wind at our back rather than a driving gale to the nose of our boat. This [audio] book is the record of that voyage.”

“Ian Cron writes with astonishing energy and freshness; his metaphors stick fast in the imagination. This is neither a simple memoir of hurt endured, nor a tidy story of reconciliation and resolution. It is–rather like Augustine’s Confessions–a testimony to the unfinished business of grace.”
-Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

“Ian Cron has the gift of making his human journey a parable for all of our journeys. Read this profound book and be well fed, and freed.”
-Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., author of Everything Belongs

“Ian Morgan Cron’s story is a compelling one… Each turn of the page will draw you closer to God.”
-Craig Groeschel, author of The Christian Atheist

“Ian Morgan Cron is a brilliant writer. This is the kind of book that you don’t just read. It reads you.”
-Mark Batterson, author of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day
