Item description for Night on the Flint River: An Accidental Journey in Knowing God by Roberta Bondi...
Overview Our most profound experiences of God often come when we least expect them: in the moments of our lives when something outside the ordinary confronts us. What we learn in these moments - about ourselves and about God - can be learned in no other way. These moments offer insight not otherwise available to us, gifts we would not otherwise receive, peace we would not otherwise know. They shape our living and believing for the rest of our lives. In this volume, Roberta Bondi reflects upon one such accidental journey with God and shows us how to pay attention to how God uses these moments for our good.

In touch with God and Self outdoors Apr 12, 2000
Being an outdoor person, I was drawn to this book by the cover (I know, don't judge a book by its cover), but I was. I have been outdoors before, and come close to what I thought was death, but was pulled through by the grace of God. Night on the Flint River : An Accidental Journey in Knowing God is Roberta Bondi's experience of just such an event. she has a powerful way of relating lifes misadventures as ways of connecting with the divine. Some would call this a "fox-hole confession", however, Bondi reflects on what happens when someone is already a believer, and feels they have come close to death. Is coming close to death a time of fear or a time of intense spiritual growth? Roberta explores this question well, and helped me understand my faith a little better also.
