"Many times this book touched me deeply—thank you for sharing your wisdom and experience in the wilderness. You opened a door that I had been seeking for a long time. Bless you!

Renewal in the Wilderness: A Spiritual Guide to Connecting with God in the Natural World
By John Lionberger
From the Publisher's Catalog
SkyLight Paths Publishing
This practical guide illuminates the power of finding God in the wilderness experience and the universality of spiritual connection through nature. It explores the teachings about wilderness in sacred writings both ancient and contemporary and how we can grow through the shared and individual experiences of being present in nature.
Lionberger draws from his own significant moments in the wilderness and stories from the many people who have accompanied him on wilderness treks. He explores the meaning of “wilderness” in our modern society and offers thoughtful suggestions about how to find the Divine in our personal experiences.
