I'm convicted by the precise reflections and tempered provocations my dear friends, Jason Locy and Timothy Willard, deliver in Home Behind the Sun. Put this book on your coffee table and read one chapter each weekend. You will see what I mean. A brilliant expose of what really matters in life, just when it seemed we were about to forget.
--Gabe Lyons, Founder, Q and Author of The Next Christians
Home Behind the Sun is a beautiful, intelligent, weighty collection. I loved it, and I can't wait to share it with people who, like me, like nothing better than to lose themselves in graceful language and find themselves in resounding themes.
--Shauna Niequist, Author of Bread & Wine
Home Behind the Sun is so elegant and moving that it nearly took my breath away. The prose glimmers and rattles and nearly every page forced me to wrestle with important questions about joy, whimsy, imagination, and purpose. Home Behind the Sun is a poetic portrait of God's glory that is as brave as it is beautiful. As you read, breathe deeply.
--Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus is Better Than You Imagined and senior columnist for Religion News Service.
Timothy Willard and Jason Locy coauthored Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society, a book that emerged from their questions about identity, authenticity, and what it means to speak the Language of God. They write and speak widely, love their families ferociously, and listen to Pearl Jam often.
Timothy is a PhD candidate at King’s College London and lives in Oxford, England, with his wife and three pixie daughters. Meanwhile, Jason directs the efforts of his design firm, FiveStone. He lives with his wife, four children, and one annoying dog in Brooklyn, New York.
Timothy Willard and Jason Locy show readers how to discover the brilliance of God in the shadows of everyday life.
Life opens up before each of us, it beckons, it tempts, it thrills, it betrays. And what do we desire? All of it and none of it.
We’re not in this to survive, but to live. We want to experience joy in the everyday grind of work, relationships, and parenting. We want healing in our suffering. Forgiveness in the midst of our pains. Purpose through the journey. We want to break free from the temporal and live with an eternal perspective. We want to be brilliant.
In Home Behind The Sun coauthors Timothy Willard and Jason Locy invite you to step out of the shadows and into the brilliance. They want to introduce you to the God of the mysterious. A God who combats despair with joy, topples bitterness with forgiveness, and eliminates cynicism with belief and whimsy.
