Elie Wiesle observed that, "I write to understand as much as to be understood." That’s true for me. When I write, I’m seeking to understand how human beings make their ascent to God, put another way, how we become like Christ. I'm not an expert, a theologian, or a pastor. I'm just a fellow pilgrim on the journey. What I am really interested in is this — recovering something ancient and enduring. A honest historical witness, a testimony from across time from men and women who have lived the Christ-life from the depth of their being.
