As a youth, author David Schneider had little interest in seeing the Christian Gospel at work in other countries of the world. Then the Lord took him by the scruff of the neck and moved him and his wife, Darlene, into the Philippines, Mexico, South Africa and, after retirement, into Kazakhstan and Kenya. David didn’t jump; he was pushed.
In Arrows of Light, Schneider offers a collection of devotions designed to help Christians see vividly how Christ refreshes frazzled people in many cultures. His judicious use of true stories may help readers grow in relating to themselves, God, and their neighbors near and far.
Clustered loosely around the Christian year—Advent-Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost—devotions are designed to be read with coordinating Bible sections. Schneider’s transparency about his own temptations and weaknesses will both startle and refresh you—and, perhaps, nudge you into conversation and discussion.
Arrows of Light is a celebration of our gracious God, as he forgives sin and restores joy for missionaries and all kinds of people everywhere.
