A Knee-Bending Foray into the Believer's Battle to See Jesus at Church
About the Book
“GREAT MERCY” is a unique series of parables that will speak to the heart of those dissatisfied with time honored denominationalism. Michael carefully examines through modern parables that church is for the sheep and not the shepherd. Michael Cartwright captures the Christian church with an unusual depth of insight into its false longings and purposeful posturing. Michael sees Jesus leaving a church that has already placed Him behind their backs. Enjoy a fresh release from the lethargy of ritual as Michael’s parables reach into the heart of the weary or war-torn believer. “GREAT MERCY” is a parabolic witness to the activity of the unchanging God in His ever-changing world. Explore the arena that is Christendom and understand the real place of His Son. Grasp the human desires of His Bride, while Jesus steps out of the arena to where He is still welcomed. Finally sip Jesus' new wine for He always leaves the best until last. Parables included are Stadium Saints, Of Temples & Tombs and Lightning Strikes of Love (and many more).
About the Author
The child is always the father to the man. As a child twice adopted Michael learned that there is always a welcome despite the view through the window. He claims no pedigrees or a life that is not common to many a man. He has studied both teaching and theology. Michael is married for over thirty years to a long-enduring wife who still delights him each day. His family of three are now raised. Michael’s Christian faith has been paradoxically watered while trekking life’s desert sands. Michael is both a school teacher and an Anglican priest. He has served for two decades in parishes of great need. From within the denominational structures Michael learned much of what he has written about in "GREAT MERCY". Motorbikes have been (and still are) a pleasing distraction for far longer than he cares to admit. Michael currently works writing two websites, soulsupply.com and MyParable.com.au
