About the Book

Ever wonder why many people feel closer to God in nature than anywhere else? Does God love everything or only humans? Why did God become a human? And what’s God up to anyway? Starting with an eternal jazz trio that decided, before time began, that it would love to share the joy of Music-making with others, the Audacious Great Singing School Adventure explores these and other theological themes in a playful imaginative re-casting of the Gospel story. It also serves as an entertaining source of inspiration and insight for those just getting into spirituality as well as for those seeking to deepen their spiritual journey.

While orthodox in content, the fable presents Christianity in a fresh way relevant to a world in environmental and social upheaval. Those interested in what Christianity has to say to such a world will find this engaging musical story enlightening regardless of their own faith perspectives while those identifying themselves as Christians will find their faith deepened and enlivened. A discussion guide to the fable is available for free download.

“… a delightful, hopeful and affirming retelling of the Christian gospel story … a high-energy narrative about diversity, harmony, belonging, listening.”
