Andrew D. Mayes, an episcopal priest and a Franciscan, served as spirituality adviser to the Diocese of Chichester and to the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf. He lived several years in Jerusalem, firstly as a theological researcher and later as director of courses of St George’s College. He is the author of sixteen spirituality books, including the award-winning Learning the Language of the Soul; Beyond the Edge: Spiritual Transitions for Adventurous Souls; and, from Wipf and Stock, Gateways to the Divine: Transformative Pathways of Prayer from the Holy City of Jerusalem; Voices from the Mountains: Forgotten Wisdom for a Hurting World; Climate of the Soul: Ecological Spirituality; and Treasure in the Wilderness: Desert Spirituality for Uncertain Times.
“In the midst of the current conflict in the Middle East we desperately need to hear stories of faith forged in the fire of contemporary experience. Drawing once again on his intimate knowledge of the Holy Land and its people, Andrew Mayes takes us on a journey that blends the traditional and the contemporary. We are invited to the challenge of living out the timeless truths of our faith in our current reality, inspired by those living through the most intense suffering.”
—Richard Jackson, Anglican bishop of Hereford
“Andrew Mayes brings biblical texts alive with color, texture, and depth by sitting them in the context of the land which he knows well. He also brings grit because he sets the text in the current challenging realities. It makes for fruitful and challenging Bible study.”
—Richard Sewell, dean, St. George’s College Jerusalem
"This course Roads of Hurt and Hope connects us powerfully, not only to biblical stories, but also to voices of those who live on these dangerous but faith-filled roads today. It beckons us to new solidarity with people in this Land of the Holy One facing trials with courage and trust. I commend it to you!"
Archbishop Hosam Naoum, Anglican/Episcopal Archbishop of Jerusalem
