We all have moments of joy, moments that move us somehow, spiritual moments that we can't quite put a finger on. But then we rush on and soon forget. In this book Chris Anderson shares such moments from his own life in order to inspire readers who are seeking, hurting, doubting, or searching. Drawing on an ancient prayer tradition, the examen of conscience, Anderson relates personal anecdotes, short scenes, and stories in a collage style that stimulates readers to reflect on their own lives. He shows how the examen can serve as a simple but powerful way to remember moments of light, of struggle, of joy. And however small or fleeting these moments are, in them God is calling and meeting us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Paula Huston
author ofSimplifying the Soul and One Ordinary Sunday
"Light When It Comesis both a literary gem and a cup of blessing for all who long to experience God's presence."

Thomas Lynch
author ofThe Undertaking and The Sin-Eater
"An age that has fashioned faith into bludgeon and cudgel, and traded community for self-righteous indignation, might better be illumined byLight When It Comesand by the grace of Anderson's vital, studious witness. The ties of belief that bind us, each to the other, needn't be rope enough to hang, cruel lash or rein or tether. Rather, lifeline, safe mooring, the holy, miraculous lowering of our hobbled, heart-wrecked selves to the place of our redeeming."

Lawrence S. Cunningham
author ofThe Seven Deadly Sins and Things Seen and Unseen
"Chris Anderson offers us a triune gift wrapped into a whole: beautiful prose, pastoral experience, and an authentic believing eye turned to our world. This volume is a grace to be received with abundant thanks.""

Methodist Recorder
"Here is a book which offers us tools, a method and a motive, for engaging with something unfamiliar in order to find ourselves more fully aware of the familiar presence of God."
