              There is an attribute of God overlooked by our materialistic world and often superficial church. Our God is truly like Fire! The Fire at the heart of the Deity is patently uncontrollable, radically transformative, and utterly irresistible. Moses' first experience of God at Sinai ...was as Fire: the Lord came down upon it in fire (Exod 19:18). John the Baptist's description of Jesus was that he would baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt 3:11).

              There is an attribute of God overlooked by our materialistic world and often superficial church. Our God is truly like Fire! The Fire at the heart of the Deity is patently uncontrollable, radically transformative, and utterly irresistible. Moses' first experience of God at Sinai ...was as Fire: the Lord came down upon it in fire (Exod 19:18). John the Baptist's description of Jesus was that he would baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt 3:11). God's Love moving in the human spirit is like the flames of a fire searing the deepest landscapes of one's inner world. Once the Spirit of Jesus begins moving, there can truly be no turning back--and no resisting! God is a relentless Hound of Heaven forever chasing you, a fire burning up all that stands between you and full surrender, a passionate Lover pursuing you and never taking no for an answer. Fire in the Deep is an attempt to capture in some small way the elusive and energizing power of the Spirit of God, as seen through Scripture and reflection. It is the author's desire and prayer that people catch fire by reading and ingesting the Word of God, as so many have done before. Be forewarned--your spirit might be enflamed with Passion by what you read! Fire in the Deep has been my constant companion along the faith journey! Of all my spiritual books, I hold this one closest to my heart because of the author's human touch and passion for God's Spirit. The inspiring stories and reflections teach me, lift me up on sad days, and give me peace in troubles and courage to face my life issues. In my fifty years of religious life, few books have ever blessed me this much! Thank you for the 'Fire'! --Sr. Clarice Helton (RIP), former teacher, religious sister in inner-city ministry Bob Miller creates a fascinating doorway into the Scriptures we use personally and at worship. He invites us not just to read the Word but to live in the Word. His reflections are valuable especially for the reflections they elicit; his many stories
