This is a path-breaking paperback about the ways individuals have handled extraordinary sacred moments in their lives. Here are accounts by eight men who were transformed by their encounters with the Divine. One occurred in a clearing in the woods, another while fishing, and a third during a near-death experience. Richard Solly movingly tells their stories along with his own three-year battle with illness. One of his most startling findings is that most of these men believe that their spiritual experiences "grounded them in humility and reverence for this world." Call to Purpose by Richard Solly makes a good case for the link between the sacred and the ordinary.
