About-

The short pieces assembled in Salvation in My Pocket are miniature experiments in Christian joy. They are attempts at describing the difference God makes to ordinary experience, and to discover glimpses of God's light in everyday life. If there is any thread that holds these haphazard reflections together, it is just the conviction that beneath the surface of things there lurks an invitation, gentle and alluring; that even in sadness and misfortune there is always rising up, as if from hidden wells, the promise of peace; and that the final word spoken over this world, and over each human life, will be a word of joy.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Imagine G. K. Chesterton in the age of the Internet. Or, better, imagine Chesterton's knack for crafting witty aphorisms, Kierkegaard's contempt for pious bromides, Barth's relentless Christocentrism, and Rowan Williams' apophatic instincts, all united in one writer, in the age of the Internet. That will give you a sense of what awaits you in the pages of this book, the collected fruit of Benjamin Myers' maddening, stimulating, comforting blog."
--Wesley Hill, Trinity School for Ministry

"Salvation in My Pocket is a little gem of a book. With reflections on everything from childhood and prayer to icons and ice cream, these 'miniature experiments in joy' powerfully illuminate divine generosity in ordinary life. Myers is that rare theologian whose gift for aphorism also makes him one of the best Christian writers of his generation. If you are looking for an alternative to the banality of much of contemporary spirituality, here it is."
--Eric Gregory, Princeton University
