Word on the Street – “I Want to See” available next week…

I Want to See - Book #2

Greetings, family & friends.  My second book, “I Want to See,” will be available early next week at 23rd Publications website.

Here’s how they describe it.  Pretty darn good…

How can we find joy, hope, and peace in ourselves and in the world? It’s a question we all ask, and in seeking the answer, theologian and famed composer Roc O’Connor invites us into the Gospel of Mark to sit by the side of the road with blind Bartimaeus.

In his inspiring and lucid exploration of the gospel, O’Connor shows us how Bartimaeus sits not only at the roadside but at the center of everything Mark wants us to know about being a disciple of Jesus. Bartimaeus knows he is blind and living in poverty and despair. And in knowing this, he cries out for help and ends up following Jesus on the Path to Life.

In the same way, says O’Connor, Mark tells us that we too are at a crossroads and it is only by recognizing our own inner blindness, our own fear, anger, and shame, our own need for healing, that we become willing to look up and call to Jesus.

This powerful, insightful, prayerful, and very hopeful book invites us to see that the parts of ourselves we most want to hide from are the very things that open to us the Path to Life, to joyous life in Christ.
