What is included with this book?


So much of our lives is caught up in the development and maintenance of security and control. But as Helen Keller observed, ├┤Security is mostly a superstition.... Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.├ And when our only experience of Christianity is safe and controlled, we miss the simple fact that faith involves risk.
