Colorado Springs, Colo. (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
Author David Schneider draws inspiration from an abundance of experience around the world in an attempt to shed light on the realities of life in foreign countries in his new book of devotionals, “Arrows of Light: Devotions for Worldwide Christians” (published by Inspiring Voices).
“In today’s Western societies, including the United States, even many highly-educated people are quite ignorant of how people think and live and die in other countries,” Schneider explains. “For my first 25 years, I was one of those unenlightened. But now, with ‘Arrows of Light,’ I attempt to ‘pull back the curtain’ to let all of us have a look into foreign hearts and lives.”
For more than 30 years, Schneider worked as a missionary in the Philippines, Mexico and South Africa, and his experiences there are reflected in “Arrows of Light.” Most of the book’s devotions are inspired by situations Schneider encountered while living outside the country, although a few of them come from Mississippi “and some,” he reports, “are straight from the Bible.”
From the back cover of “Arrows of Light”:
“Schneider’s transparency about his own temptations and weaknesses will both startle and refresh you – and, perhaps, nudge you into conversation and discussion.”
