Something Absolute free pdf Ruth Jolly, for whom 'spiritual conviction co-exists with intellectual ambivalence' had in middle age almost stopped wrestling with questions of faith when ...On a bitter February day, Charlie, her student son, crashed in a light aircraft. Witnesses who saw the plane hit the ground, expected to recover only bodies, but against all the odds, Charlie lived. Airlifted to hospital with horrific injuries, he continued to live. As his hold on life strengthened, Ruth kept a scruffy, bemused, emotionally-charged diary. It compelled her to ponder her comfortably vague ideas about Christianity. A few years on, the challenge was fading as 'Charlie's miracle' receded and the diary remained painfully unreadable. Then, in a cold February start to Lent, she picked up the diary and began to read it alongside the New Testament book of 'Acts'. To her utter astonishment, in the company of the earliest Christians she found a way to think clearly again: about survivors, about purpose, about faith and above all, about love. This is a book for anyone who, for whatever reason, is thinking or re-thinking their Christianity.
