"What fire is this that warms my soul?...O fire that burns forever, and never dies, kindle me! O light which shines eternally, and never darkens, illumine me…How sweetly do you burn!" – Augustine
Praise for Dwight Edwards' earlier work: "Edwards sets out practical application parameters for keeping priorities intact, understanding each individual's intrinsic value… His lively, engaging, and worthwhile prose will find its place among other well-received [inspirational] writers such as John Eldredge and Max Lucado…" — Publisher's Weekly
|God appears in many metaphoric forms in the Bible—rock, water, wind, fortress, refuge—but he appears over ninety times as fire. "For our God is a consuming fire," writes the author of Hebrews, and both the Old and New Testaments reinforce this blazing portrait. But God is not only a fire on the outside; he is equally a fire on the inside. In Kindling for the Fire: Meditations to Warm the Heart and Ignite the Spirit, renowned spiritual writer and minister Dwight Edwards addresses the permanent, inextinguishable fire that he believes exists in every believer's soul.
Covering a full range of experiences, from dark nights of the soul to moments of exquisite joy, Edwards presents inspiration for each moment based on timeless scripture. His warming words cover topics from Abandonment and Brokenness to the Christian Life, Contentment, and eventually Gratitude, Worship and Joy. He illustrates succinctly and powerfully that God can speak to us with warming words, no matter what our current circumstances are. Each short devotional offers scripture, interpretation and encouragement, and each will be read, reread and cherished at different times in the reader's journey.
DWIGHT EDWARDS has been a pastor for over thirty years. He played professional tennis, and works additionally as a high performance life coach.
