And No Religion, Too is a group of essays about life in the Kingdom of God. Some of the stories are about faith and simplicity, about the sacramental experience with the risen Christ that seems to war against the rational, rigid, unbudging mandates of actual church life in the West. Some of the writing is about the Western church itself, the fragmented but beautiful, self-guided but sincere, expression of the Body of Christ passed down to us from the Reformers, who, I've always thought, didn't 'reform' nearly enough.
And No Religion, Too, is the tip of the iceberg for me. It was baby-step number one. My journey since 2007 when this book was finished has been different than I would have ever imagined. It has taken my wife and I, and our youngest daughter, down a path that led east. To Greece, Russia, Constantinople, to the ancient faith of the Orthodox church.
And the more I study the more amazed and humbled I become. I'm not there yet. Who is? right? But if you choose to read ANRT, maybe it will trigger your journey, I don't know. Maybe it will resonate in your heart another way or just make you mad. The things that I felt strongly about in 2007, many of them anyway, aren't even on my radar anymore. I would have written it completely different if I'd penned it in 2015, but I guess that's the beauty of walking with Jesus; we change, but He never does. He just keeps drawing us into a deeper walk with Him and, if we're open to His Spirit, He'll keep breaking, and changing, and molding us into His image. I can feel that happening to me, and I see it taking place in my family.
God bless you, friend. May your journey lead to the end of yourself and the blessed peace of Christ. Ed Goble.
