Come Follow Me August 6, 2015 By Collegeville Institute William C Mills Worcester, MA , OCABS Press , 2015 Visit this title» “Many people today are risk-averse; living in a world fraught with dangers, they imagine it safer to remain in one place than get caught moving about. Others believe that by forestalling any sort of changes in life they can somehow avoid feeling any greater pain. Fr. William Mills’ latest work, Come Follow Me, is an invitation to test the paradox of authentic human existence-that only by dying to self can one come to experience all the fullness of life. A delightful narrator, Fr. Mills inhabits the stories he tells in an honest and self-effacing way. His thorough knowledge of the Bible, which grows out of his deep love for Scripture, intersects with his stories in a way that clarifies the biblical narratives, while in turn providing un- derstanding that brings light to our own life stories.” Nicolae Roddy, PhD Associate Professor, Hebrew Bible Co-director, Bethsaida Excavations Project Creighton University, Omaha, NE “Mills’ fresh voice helps his readers focus on what is truly es- sential: listening to the still, small voice of God. Mills offers us short but deeply refreshing Biblical reflections grounded in our human and often mundane experiences but raised heav- enward as we follow Christ in patience, humility, and joy.” Adam DeVille, Ph.D Assistant Professor of Theology University of St. Francis Fr. William C. Mills is the rector of the Nativity of the Holy Virgin Or- thodox Church Charlotte, NC and the author of numerous books on Biblical Spirituality. Like this post?
