Item description for Salt and Light by Shane Stanford & Ronald S. Kent...
Overview Are you looking for a unique devotional journey that leads to a more significant walk with God? Has your devotional life become mundane and lifeless? Are you tired of a spiritual life that lacks meaning? Salt and Light prepares the reader for a voyage into a more meaningful devotional experience. The twenty-five devotions, along with the "Growing Deeper" sections, engage the heart and soul of the reader to reflect on the everyday experience of knowing and serving God. Rev. Shane Stanford and Dr. Ronnie Kent use stories of hope, loss, love, and humor to inspire the reader's sense of value to God. Salt and Light is also a personal journey whereby Rev. Stanford shares his unique story as a person of faith and ordained minister living with hemophilia and HIV. Dr. Kent, Rev. Stanford's spiritual mentor, provides the "Growing Deeper" and "Checklist" sections for continued spiritual growth and development. Although originally written as a series of devotions for Advent, Salt and Light can be used at any point during the Christian year. So, laugh, cry, or whatever-but, above all, make it matter!

Salt and Light Sep 24, 2007

Best Intentions turn out even better Jul 3, 2003
This book was originally conceived and written as an Advent Devotional by the authors but can be used, as I have used it, as a devotional for any period when you need to know that God cares about you and your problems or issues. Written in a personable, practical style, Salt and Light brings a common sense approach to two men's walk with God, and how they are sharing their unique vision with their family and friends. From "the grass is always greener over the septic tank" and the often quoted but never improved on "Pray, read your bible and love Jesus" both men show that you can use this practical guide on many levels, and enjoy growing closer to God with each one.
Wonderful! Jun 17, 2003
This book of devotions is a creative mix of theology, humor, life lessons and real examples of living faith. I recommend this to anyone who wants a book that can make you laugh, make you cry and always make you connect faith with daily living. A good read for the seeker or mature in faith.
Salt and Light Jun 16, 2003
This is such a great devotional. It was very hard to stop at just one devotional. I found myself continuing to read on and I realized that I had gone into another days devotion. But this is ok because I just kept re-reading which is a good thing to do! I have recommended the book and have given copies to others. Their reaction is Thank You so much for such a great inspirational book. It is not like other devotionals, which may not hold your attention, and cause you to reflect on each devotion. Everyone I have talked to that has read the book simply loves the book.
Great Book for Practical Living Jun 16, 2003
Rev. Stanford and Dr. Kent provide practical steps for living out one's faith by using stories of hope and humor. The stories are wonderful and the growing deeper sections really challenge the reader to go further in their spiritual walk. Written in a personal and easy style, Salt and Light is a "fun" read that will encourage with tears and laughter. A MUST READ!
