Challenges readers to explore, share, and celebrate the themes/mysteries of the Sunday Lent and Easter readings.
What kind of warrior are you? Are you a knight, or are you a knave? Do you find that you can relate to Richard the Lionheart; the most invincible warrior in the Christian world, who devised strategic methods of warfare that ensured victory, yet lost his most crucial battles off the field due to his reckless actions and rash words? Or are you like William the Marshall; a humble knight who only desired to serve his sovereign, but whose couragous soul and chivalrous spirit won the respect and admiration of even his fiercest enemy monarchs? Are you a loyal servant like Blondel, the lowly minstrel who left all the comforts of civilization to take to the road in search of his missing king when he failed to return from the Crusades? Or could you competently reign as queen regent in your king's absence to protect his interests and preserve the kingdom as Eleanor of Aquitaine did and acquired the acclaim of her people? Spiritual warfare is on the increase in Christian circles. Unfortunately, there have been casualties due to ignorance in how to wage war successfully, and how to conduct ourselves with nobility both on and off the battlefield. Let's take a fun and informative look back at a time when striving for excellence in character was the norm, and all was done for the glory of God. As we examine the Age of Chivalry, the game of chess, and historical battles that changed nations, we will learn that strongholds will crumble and a field of victory is assured when all of the players work together in unison.
After twenty-five years of untreated major depression and substance abuse, former two-time All-American and NFL player Robert Williams was at a crossroad. His thoughts did not include feelings of lost opportunities, fame or unmet potentials but of his spiritual dissonance. Why had a tortured soul been given a second chance-why had his demons not succeeded? A Journey of Spiritual Restoration is a glimpse of the divine voyage to his peaceful existence. It is a manuscript of poems and expression of a man who stood up to his shallow ego. Journey of Spiritual Restoration highlights his introduction to Taoism and the acceptance of a higher source. More important, this book provides hope; it verifies miracles do exist, spiritual miracles the kind only God can produce.
