Brief Description

Paul’s Letter to the Colossians gives us a starting point for navigating the shallow waters of our time. Both believers and unbelievers are drowning in the trivialities of our day. Our vision is blurred without divine healing. Only Jesus can touch our eyes and enable us to see his face of sacrificial love and grace. What is needed is clear vision and courageous hearts to live in the deep waters of authentic, biblical faith that is hardwired to Jesus and is sensitive to people for whom Jesus died and rose again. In Drowning in Shallow Water, Timothy Owings reminds us that our only hope for being rescued is in reconnecting with Jesus Christ, his heart, his compassion, his way of reaching across barriers and building redemptive relationships.
