James Bailiff, a retired parish clergyman who grew up in a family that valued and promoted living a meaningful life, has completed his first book "Mining for Meaning": a gripping and potent work of theological precision that has a grand mix of enlightened thinking, compassion, and hopefulness.
"I am a retired parish clergyman with continuing interest in writing with a focus on issues that help us to improve our individual and corporate living and establishing justice for the marginalized. My passion is to discover ways to help all of us think more broadly about the well-being of humanity by transcending our political, social, and cultural differences in search of positive ways to live together and to nurture our planet."
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, James Bailiff’s poignant tale draws inspiration from his deep relationship with God and also from the lives and work of great religious thinkers such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Victor Frankl.
Illuminating the true principals and guidelines bestowed upon us by the Creator, Mining for Meaning: Harvesting Rich Veins of Meaning from Our Relationship with God, One Another, and Nature explores the intrinsic value of human beings to one another and the world they inhabit. James Bailiff examines the potential to be fully engaged in our relationship with God and nature. By acknowledging the sometimes antiquated notions of religiosity, Bailiff proposes a new sense of meaning; one that is our birthright, regardless of what faith we choose. Transcending our ego-based consciousness to attain personal happiness is a truly fulfilling experience, one attained in union with God. Bailiff offers profound insights that allow us to embrace the joyous emotions that gratitude, harmony, abundance, and love provide for us. More timely than ever before, Mining for Meaning questions our departure from experiencing nature in its fundamental form and its relevance as a reflection of the Creator, as well as the negative byproducts that come as a result of detachment from that natural world. Inspiring, enlightening and uplifting, this is a must-read spiritual manifesto for a better way of life and a better world around us.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase Mining For Meaning at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
