The Luminous Dusk

Finding God in the Deep, Still Places
  • By Dale C. Allison, Jr.
For millennia humans knew the stars as well as they knew their own neighborhoods. Yet many of us have lost both this and other vital connections with our natural world.

In the thoughtful, genre-bending nonfiction tradition of Wendell Berry and Walker Percy, Dale C. Allison charts the effects of the loss of wonder in western society. Taking insights from everything from ancient creation myths to the popularity of cartoon animals, he highlights our ongoing disconnection from the cosmos, tracing its spiritual and philosophical impact. Comprised of six elegant and profound essays "The Luminous Dusk" calls us to a life of sustained wonder, open to God and connected to the creation, a life that chooses divine ascent over our culture's reflexive mediocrity.
