Reverend Juris Rubenis, whose books outsell John Grisham and Stephen King in his native country of Latvia, will be touring in the United States to promote his new book, Finding God in a Tangled World
If you live in the Greater D.C. area, please come and meet Juris on Saturday, November 17 at The Power Plant Barnes & Noble in Baltimore, MD. This will be a time of question and answer, and booksigning. The event coincides well with Latvian Independence Day which is on November 18th.
Juris Rubenis is a Lutheran pastor and the bestselling author in Latvia. He was one of Latvia's most outspoken religious leaders against oppression in the 1980's and early 1990's, and is considered a national hero in his homeland.
Finding God in a Tangled World is a translated masterpiece of wisdom in which Rubenis shares parables and short wisdom sayings stemming from a clarity that comes from having survived religious persecution.
This unusual little book is a translated masterpiece of wisdom - the result of a unique conversation about faith between a Protestant pastor and a Roman Catholic artist in the heart of post-communist Europe. Juris Rubenis and Maris Subacs know very well that their country is inconspicuous on the global scene. But they also know that the spiritual world is one of reverse perspective, where a small people can be gifted with a big faith and a narrow gate can open onto a vast and wonderful domain.
Rubenis’ pithy observations about the world are brief and deceptively simple stories that speak directly to the anxiety in our world today. At times, they evoke the Desert Fathers, at other times, Blaise Pascal or Simone Weil. With modesty and good humor, pastor and artist have borne witness to the mystery of Eden, the mystery of the kingdom of God. It is a book for new Christians, old Christians, and people who just wonder about God.
