An Unfading Vision


by Lis Trouten

“At any moment an unsatisfying life may become once more a grand adventure if we will surrender it to God.”

Edward England read these words of Paul Tournier one morning in 1966, on his commute to his job in London, managing a religious bookstore. All his life, he had been influenced by the written word, and these words marked the beginning of an adventure for him. He captures this in “An Unfading Vision,” first published in 1982. In 1999, Media Associates International reprinted the book, and it is as fresh today as it was then.

If you’ve lost the sense of adventure in your writing, editing, publishing; if your passion for the work of the written word has become a dim recollection; if you’re feeling sluggish and dragged out (and the EPA Convention is still months away), this may be the antidote. Chapter after chapter, each chapter a lively, engaging story, you will be reminded, “This is why I do what I do.”
