Jump Roping through The Labyrinth to the Abyss--finding God

by Elton Houck


Book Details


On our pilgrimage, we often find ourselves adrift on a boundless sea, tossed about in raging storms. Feeling lost and without hope, crashing upon rocky shoals, our souls cry in the night. We would run and hide, but alas, there is no sanctuary where we can abide. A phantom wind blows cold across our skin, and we shiver like children creeping about in the shadow fold of night, afraid of the dark and fearful of the light. We see the world as a wonder, a wicked delight, a somber dirge, a fool’s tale of pride, hubris, joy, hope, and defeat—and although wounded in the fray, we fight on ’til the day God takes us home again to the garden. Jump Roping Through the Labyrinth to the Abyss is a whimsical and moving collection of poetry, song, and prose, unveiling the many roads upon which the author traveled—until God revealed the narrow path of salvation through Jesus!
