Faith Odyssey is a Bible study unlike any other written. Richard Burridge invites readers to explore the journey of faith through fifty short devotional readings that combine Scripture with stories from science fiction and popular culture.
For each day, passages from the Bible are placed alongside stories drawn from literature, television, and film – from Homer’s Odyssey to Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, from Star Trek to Star Wars, from Dune to The Matrix, from the charms of Narnia to the spells of Harry Potter.
Whereas Burridge’s Faith Odyssey: A Journey Through Lent was tied to one season of the church year, in this edition it applies more broadly to any time throughout the year. Imaginative and deep, Burridge’s reflections trace with flair and relevance the Christian pilgrimage against the background of today’s world.
