Today Everything Is Different: An Adventure in Prayer and Action
In Today Everything Is Different Dirk Lange does not fail to deliver the "unexpected" in helping readers gain both a greater understanding of Christian spirituality and a path to it. On this adventure, an adventure of both the mind and heart, the reader will explore the foundational underpinnings of baptism, the impact of prayer in many forms--especially in community--and the insights of giants like Luther and Bonhoeffer. The great beauty of the book, however, is found in the incredibly moving stories Lange shares, including personal stories of the prayer groups and underground church in East Germany prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall. In these, we see firsthand evidence of the spiritual power to be discovered as we simply, faithfully, and prayerfully embrace the gift given in baptism; live faithfully in our everyday lives; and respond to God's call as a community to walk arm in arm into the world alongside and for our neighbor.
