The Bleed of Heaven

Or Luke and Me

Hi <<First Name>>,

Do you wonder where God is in your life?

Here's what I've discovered: Deep in the messiness of my own experience,

I have asked again and again, “Where is God in this?”

From time to time, I have come to feel sure that no God could be, or be where I was. 

The Bleed of Heaven: Or Luke and Me traces my way out by fits and starts. Piecing together close readings of Luke alongside memoir allows me to knit my life, with its problems intact, into the fabric of Luke’s writing.

Luke offers capable companionship, real help, but not necessarily the help any of us might have expected.

If you feel like life is a bit like a Divine detective story right now, I hope you give The Bleed of Heaven a chance.

Praise for The Bleed of Heaven

“In The Bleed of Heaven, Kris Brown takes the reader on a gentle and moving spiritual journey. At the core of this book are insightful and poetic readings of texts and equally insightful and poetic accounts of her life. She creates an ingenious interplay between her readings of Luke and Acts and stories from her life. Each illuminates the other. And her gatherings at the end of each chapter are beautiful and full of hope.”
Lewis Donelson, professor emeritus, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary

“There is no one better qualified to take on the questions of Luke and Acts. Kris Brown brings the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor to this work. Hers is a wise and honest contribution to the conversation.”
Sallie M. Watson, general presbyter, Mission Presbytery
