Tables in the Wilderness
A Memoir of God Found, Lost, and Found AgainBook - 2014
Popular blogger Preston Yancey offers an incredible memoir of faith lost and found that will resonate with mainstream Christians.
In Tables in the Wilderness , Preston Yancey arrived at Baylor University in the autumn of 2008 with his life figured out: he was Southern Baptist, conservative, had a beautiful girlfriend he would soon propose to, and planned to study political science. Then God slowly allowed Preston's secure world to fall apart until every piece of what he thought was true was lost: his church, his life of study, his political leanings, his girlfriend, his best friend . . . and his God.
Tables in the Wilderness is the story of one man's slow return to the God he thought he knew. Now, Preston is a patchwork of Anglican spirituality and Baptist sensibility. He shares his story of coming to terms with a God who is bigger than the one he thought he was worshiping-the God of a common faith, the God who makes tables in the wilderness, the God who is found in cathedrals and in forests and in the Eucharist, the God who is so big, that everything must be his.
