Home Behind the Sun by Timothy Willard and Jason Locy is a book that helps us to connect with God in the everyday surroundings of our life. This book is inspiring, insightful, and indeed a very good read.
“Timothy Willard and Jason Locy show readers how to discover the brilliance of God in the shadows of everday life.
Life opens up before each of us, it beckons, it tempts, it thrills, it betrays. And what do we desire? All of it and none of it.
We’re not in this to survive, but to live. We want to experience joy in the everyday grind of work, relationships, and parenting. We want healing in our suffering. Forgiveness in the midst of our pains. Purpose through the journey. We want to break free from the temporal and live with an eternal perspective. We want to be brilliant.
In coauthors Timothy Willard and Jason Locy invite you to step out of the shadows and into the brilliance. They want to introduce you to the God of the mysterious. A God who combats despair with joy, topples bitterness with forgiveness, and eliminates cynicism with belief and whimsy.
You’re invited home. Home, behind the sun.” – Home Behind the Sun
Home Behind the Sun is a book about faith, but it isn’t in your face with bible scriptures or telling you that what you are doing with your life is going to send you on a one way trip to hell. The authors write in a very flowing, easy to read manner that made me also connect with what they were writing. The message is basically to be more truthful with yourself, your life, your thoughts, and your spirituality. This will ultimately lead you to a happier life where you are connected to God and leading the path that is truly set out for you.
Overall, I enjoyed this read and think that everyone would benefit from reading. It is filled with quotes, stories, and more for you to relate with and share with others. I highly recommend it.
