About the Book

Do you wish Christianity could be a life-giving practice rather than a rote set of beliefs? Do you long for a fresh encounter with Scripture, Jesus, and your own life?

Alexander John Shaia pulls back the curtain on texts long taken for granted, showing that each gospel account is more than a telling of Jesus' life and words.

Drawing on universal archetypes of the human journey, each gospel stands revealed as a response to a core life question:

  • Matthew: How do we face change?
  • Mark: How do we move through suffering?
  • John: How do we receive joy?
  • Luke: How do we mature in service?

The four traditional gospels are more than the sum of their parts. In the sequence of early Christianity’s weekly reading cycle, these four ancient testimonies become the great map of a universal journey - one of love, growth and transformation.

About the Author

Alexander John Shaia, PhD, is a thoughtful and poetic man, living the ancient rhythms of his Lebanese and Aramaic heritage. With deep conviction, he invites us into a practice of spirituality (and Christianity) for the twenty-first century—one that crosses traditional boundaries, encourages vital thinking and inhabits a genuine community of the heart. As a spiritual director, educator, anthropologist, psychologist, ritualist and Sandplay therapist, Alexander is a holistic, cross-discipline visionary and passionate professional speaker. He founded The Journey of Quadratos, as well as the Blue Door Retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Now he travels internationally, speaking, leading seminars and conducting retreats on Quadratos, the Four-Gospel Journey and Gateway to Oneness (The 72 Hours of Easter). Each autumn Alexander guides an intimate band of pilgrims on the Camino, the West’s most ancient path of transformation. He’s just released the updated edition of Heart and Mind: The Four-Gospel Journey for Radical Transformation, which this post is based on. See Quadratos.com for more about his work and offerings.
